It was close until the bottom of the third inning when Jeffery Klahn doubled in Cameron Stephens with the first run of the game but in the top of the fifth the visiting Falcons put up four runs with another two in the sixth.
“We held them until the fourth but in the fifth inning we gave up a couple errors that cost us and our bats were quiet,” Grizzly pitcher Beau Burgess said.
Brayden Ellis scored a run for the Grizzlies in the bottom of the sixth inning after stealing second and third. Klahn (2-for-3) then drove him in.
Additional highlights were Nick White’s unassisted double play and some solid pitching by Burgess and Tony Ceirante.
“Our pitchers were throwing strikes and our out field did a good job shutting down the offense. We stayed positive and focused through the whole game also,” Golden Sierra coach Greg Thompson said.
Carter Lencioni went 2-for-3 for the Griz.
The Grizzlies are now on their way to Stockton for the first round of playoffs May 14.
