CRESTWOOD, IL – Zach Tanner hit a grand slam in the ninth inning for the Frontier Greys Saturday night, cementing their 7-2 win over the ThunderBolts at Standard Bank Stadium.

The Bolts answered with two in the bottom of the first to take the lead. Michael Torres walked in front of Kyle Robinson, who clubbed his 13th home run of the year, making the score 2-1.

The Greys tied the score three innings later. With two outs in the fourth, Chase Tucker singled and Dziomba doubled him home. Dziomba tried to score on a Cameron Monger single, but was thrown out at the plate.

The Greys took the lead for good in the sixth. Michael Vaughn reached on an infield single and Tucker doubled to score Vaughn and make the score 3-2.

It was still 3-2 into the ninth, when the Greys loaded the bases on two walks and an error. With two outs, Tanner worked the count full against Jessie Snodgrass and homered on the ninth pitch to put the game out of reach at 7-2.
