Maybe fitting on a night when the NBA's best defensive player does first pitch honors at Chukchansi Park, defense and pitching command the show.Bruce Bowen, the former Edison High and San Antonio Spurs standout starts the game with a strike to get things going.

Matt Palmer, the coast league strikeout leader with 7 k's in a 7 inning 4 hit performance.

With both the Grizzlies and Portland Beavers struggling for runs Dan Rohn tried to manufacture one, but the delayed double steal does not work.

The game went to the 11th inning with one to one tie, where Portland won it 4 to 2.
