For the first time this season, we can say the 'first-place Grizzlies' return to action night!  How about that??  Gateway picked up another convincing win, taking down River City by the score of 9-0 last night @ GCS Ballpark.  Gateway hit 4 HR's (Hernandez 2, Shelby and Noris) and cruised to the easy victory.  Paul Tremlin fired seven scoreless innings to pick up his 5th win this season.  Below are Radio Highlights from the win last night, as heard on the Gateway Grizzlies Radio Network.

The Grizzlies are currently tied with the Schaumburg Boomers for the first place spot in the West Division.  Gateway has won 14 of 18..they are 16-6 in the 2nd half and are looking for their 9th straight series win tonight.

The pitching matchup certainly favors Gateway in tonight's game, which is game 5 of a 9-game homestand.  RHP Tim Brown (7-2, 2.24) hurls for GWY while RCY goes with rookie LHP Cory Caruso (0-0, 5.28) who makes his first professional start tonight.  Below are some tidbits on the St. Louis, MO native, Tim Brown.
  • Has gone into the 7th inning in all 14 starts this season
  • 2-0 in his last 3 starts
  • His last loss was all the way back on June 6th @ Schaumburg
  • Has gone at least 7 innings in his last 6 starts
  • Brown is 2nd in the Frontier League in ERA and Innings
  • In his 4 starts in the 2nd half, he has only walked 5 batters
First pitch is at 7:05 CT tonight.  I'll talk to you on the Grizzlies Radio Network (590 AM KFNS, 1400 AM KJFF,, and the FREE KFNS App) at 6:50 with the Budweiser Pregame Show!  Go Grizzlies!
