Newport native Grant Black makes first AAA start, Yadier Molina behind the plate
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (KAIT) - Saturday was a memorable one for Newport native Grant Black. The Greyhound alum made his first Triple-A start in 2022 in Memphis. His battery mate? St. Louis Cardinals legend Yadier Molina.
Black tossed three innings, only allowing one hit -- a two-run home run in the third -- with two strikeouts in a no-decision. His three innings pitched are his longest outing since joining Memphis and his second-longest of the season (3.2 in April for AA Springfield).
Grant has made nine appearances in AAA this season, striking out 7 over 12.2 innings of work (3.55 ERA).
