What Happened to the Grizzlies?

In Mid-June the Fresno Grizzlies were the hottest team in Triple A baseball.  Since then they have moved their position in relation to the Sacramento Rivecats by 17 1/2 games.  That would be amazing in a 144 game season even with more than 40 games played.  The Cats were down by 12.5 in mid-June and at day next to the last day in the regular season - they stood at 5 games up on the highway 99 rival.  The last 10 games the Grizzlies have been 1 and 9 while the Cats are 8 and 2.  Tacoma looks like the opponent in the series for the Pacific Division.   In their last 10 games they are 6 and 4.

The Rainiers have won five fewer games than the Cats. We've just barely won our home stands (By 2 games - which means that we did not go into positive numbers until the last three games of the Fresno series.  On the other hand Tacoma is five games down on road games while we are up in road games by thirteen.

All these stats are interesting until Wednesday.  At that point - the team with the most heart wins. Both the Division series and the PCL championships are five games.
