Grizzlies With 7 Straight Wins; Noris Continues To Hit

Rogelio Noris has been everything the Gateway Grizzlies wanted AND more.  24 games into his tenure with the Grizzlies, after being acquired in a late June trade, Noris has been the best hitter in the Grizzlies order.  In 24 games with Gateway, Noris is hitting .379 with four homers and 25 RBI.  After an 11-run 7th inning that helped them come back to win 12-6 last night, the Grizzlies have won seven games in a row and are the hottest team in the Frontier League.  If the playoffs started today, Gateway would be in..and Rogelio Noris, a native of Mexico, is a big reason why.  Below are Radio Highlight from his time with Gateway.

Noris hit a big two-run double in the Grizzlies explosive 7th inning last night.  Gateway was looking for a right-handed power bat prior to the all-star break and Noris has been that guy.  This trade will go down as one of the best in-season trades in Grizzlies history.  Many will compare it to the Gordie Gronkowski trade of 2010, but if this team makes the playoffs and Rogelio maintains his pace, this trade will be even better.

Noris and the Grizzlies will try to win their eighth win in a row tonight @ GCS Ballpark.  Tune in on the Gateway Grizzlies Radio Network (590 AM KFNS, 1400 AM KJFF, gatewaygrizzlies.com, kfns.com and the FREE KFNS App on your cell phone).  Go Grizzlies!
