Is this what you are looking for?

Grid[{
   {ptedgeL , ptfaceL, ptsphrL, ttencl},
   {10, 10, 5, 3},
   {"ptvertS3=", {{-75, -51, -45}, {27, 30, -9}}, SpanFromLeft,
    SpanFromLeft},
   {"ptvertS4=", {{-32, -69, -57}, {-31, -31, 59}, {-21, 56, -46}},
    SpanFromLeft, SpanFromLeft}
   },
  Dividers -> All,
  Alignment -> Left
  ]

I find it very useful to include the Dividers->All option to better 
understand what Grid does, even if I might decide to remove it in the 
end for aesthetic reasons...

hth,
