Salt Lake Bees

The Bees’ Nevada road trip has been a disaster, as Salt Lake lost its seventh game in a row Monday night with an 8-3 loss to the Las Vegas 51s. The Bees (44-40) haven’t won since a 9-6 victory over Reno in the first game of the nine-game road trip June 25. Since then, Salt Lake has scored just 14 runs, losing three straight to Reno and the first four of its five-game series against Las Vegas that wrapped up Tuesday. The losing streak has dropped the Bees one game behind El Paso in the Pacific Southern Division standings, with the Bees set to play host to the Chihuahuas for five games beginning Wednesday. In other Bees news, outfielder Jabari Blash has been named as a starter for the upcoming Triple-A All-Star Game. Blash is hitting .335 with a Pacific Coast League-best 23 home runs to go with 51 RBIs and a .773 slugging percentage. The All-Star Game, pitting the PCL’s best against the International League All-Stars, will be played July 11 in Columbus, Ohio.

RSL got a goal from Albert Rusnak in the 74th minute, but couldn’t complete the comeback in a 2-1 loss to Columbus Crew SC on the road Saturday.
