Salt Lake Bees

The Bees head into this week’s Triple-A All-Star break in a freefall, losing their past five games and 13 of their past 15 to fall five games behind first-place El Paso in the Pacific Coast League’s Pacific Southern Division. Salt Lake (45-45) had a chance to gain ground on the Chihuahuas (50-40), hosting El Paso for a five-game series at Smith’s Ballpark, but lost all five games and are now closer to last place in the division than to the top spot. After the Bees suffered a tough 11-10, extra-innings loss to the Chihuahuas in the series opener Wednesday night, El Paso grabbed a 3-2 win over the Bees on Thursday. The Chihuahuas scored three runs in the top of the seventh inning to break a scoreless tie, only to have Salt Lake respond with a one-out, two-run triple by Ben Revere in the bottom of the ninth to give the bees a shot. But Revere was thrown out at home on a fielder’s choice by Nolan Fontana, and Eric Young Jr. popped out to short to end the game. On Friday, El Paso came away with a 7-3 victory after the Bees squandered an early 3-1 lead. Michael Hermosillo had an RBI single in the first inning for Salt Lake, while Revere scored on a sacrifice fly by Francisco Arcia in the second and Young Jr. drove Revere in with a single in the fourth. But a throwing error by Salt Lake shortstop Kaleb Cowart allowed two Chihuahuas to score in the top of the seventh, and Allen Craig followed with a grand slam off Bees reliever Greg Mahle. Saturday’s game saw El Paso rally from a 4-1 deficit for a 5-4 victory. Young Jr. hit a two-run home run in the third inning and added a solo shot in the fifth, and Taylor Ward drove in Matt Thaiss with a sacrifice fly in the fifth as the Bees built a three-run advantage. El Paso’s Austin Bousfield cut the lead in half with an RBI single in the sixth and Dusty Coleman’s solo homer in the seventh made it 4-3. Forrest Allday put the Chihuahuas in front to stay with a two-run single in the top of the eighth. The series finale was a 15-6 blowout in El Paso’s favor on Sunday, as the Chihuahuas pounded five Bees pitchers for 17 hits. Salt Lake catcher Joe Hudson hit his first home run of the season in the bottom of the second inning as the Bees briefly led 3-0, but El Paso scored nine of the game’s next 10 runs to seize control. Following the Triple-A All-Star Game on Wednesday in Columbus, Ohio, Salt Lake will hit the road for a four-game series against the Sacramento River Cats. The Bees’ next home series is July 16-19 against the Las Vegas 51s.

Real Salt Lake

RSL continued its recent run of success at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday, beating Western Conference-leading FC Dallas 2-0 on Saturday in front of 17,319 fans. Albert Rusnak put Real Salt Lake (9-8-2) in front in the 11th minute with a goal on a penalty kick, and Luis Silva added an insurance tally in stoppage time at the end of the second half. Nick Rimando made one save to record his fifth shutout of the season and the 142nd of his MLS career, dating back to his first season in 2000 with the Miami Fusion. RSL, which faced German side Eintracht Frankfurt in a club friendly on Tuesday evening in Sandy, improved to 8-1-1 at home this season and is tied with Portland for fourth place in the Western Conference heading into Saturday’s road match against Minnesota United FC.

Utah Royals FC

URFC suffered a 4-0 loss on the road Friday night against Portland Thorns FC in National Women’s Soccer League action. Tobin Heath scored for Portland in the second minute, and Lindsey Horan and Ana-Maria Crnogocevic scored in the 32nd and 34th minutes, respectively. Tyler Lussi scored the Thorns’ fourth goal in the 62nd minute to complete the rout, handing the Royals (5-4-6) their worst loss of their inaugural season and dropping them to sixth place in the nine-team league. URFC will face Seattle Reign FC on Wednesday in Seattle.
