Grizzlies Continue Winning; Look For 7th Straight Series Win

Gateway continued their winning ways with an 11-5 win last night in game one of the series here in Marion, IL.  The Grizzlies and Miners were tied 3-3 in the 7th inning before the Grizzlies exploded for five runs on five hits to break the game open.  Power-hitting outfielder Rogelio Noris did it again, blasting a two-run home run to left field to break the 3-3 tie.  Below is the radio call of the Noris HR, as heard on the Gateway Grizzlies Radio Network.

Gateway is now in third place in the Frontier League.  If the playoffs started today, the Grizzlies would be in.  Schaumburg leads Gateway by two games in the West Division and the Grizzlies sit in second place and a half game ahead of Windy City.  The Grizzlies have won 10 of 12 and are a league-best 17-7 in July.

This is a HUGE series..both Gateway and Southern Illinois are 37-27 and competing for a playoff spot.  The Grizzlies will look for their seventh straight series win tonight.  Right-hander Paul Tremlin goes for the Grizzlies.  First pitch is set for 5:05 and I'll have the call with the Budweiser Pregame Show at 4:50 on the Grizzlies Radio Network.  Talk to you then. Go Grizzlies!
