Grizzlies Rebellion Falls Short on Star Wars Night

June 2, 2013 12:00:00 AM PDT
The Fresno Grizzlies could have used some of "The Force" at the plate Saturday night, on Star Wars Night against the Las Vegas 51s.

The Grizzlies wore Storm Trooper themed jerseys that were auctioned off after the game, and Grizzlies players were also photoshopped into different Star Wars characters.

Good times all around, except at the plate for either team. It turns out a third inning Kirk Nieuwenhuis home run is the game-winner for Las Vegas, as Zach Wheeler shuts down the Grizzlies tonight, 2-1. Both teams are back at Chukchansi Park Sunday afternoon for a 2:05 start.
