Salt Lake Bees
The Salt Lake Bees finished a eight-game homestand with a 10-6 loss Monday to the Fresno Grizzlies at Smith’s Ballpark. The Bees gave up six runs in the first two innings, but Salt Lake starter Justing Thomas settled in and followed with five shutout innings for seven total innings pitched — the eighth time this season a Bees starter has recorded seven or more innings. Salt Lake added six runs to give Thomas the no decision. Yoslan Herrera (0-2) took the loss after giving the Grizzlies the lead in the eighth as Adam Reifer (3-0) claimed the win. Matt Long had two hits and two RBIs, including a solo shot to left field. Luis Jimenez was 4-4 on the night and Roberto Lopez added a home run. “We didn’t capitalize on opportunities to get the lead and to get ourselves back into the ball game,” said manager Keith Johnson in a release. “It’s been our Achilles heel all season.” The Bees hit the road for the next eight days, kicking off the trip at Tacoma and ending at Albuquerque. The team returns to Smith’s Ballpark for a four-game homestand against Sacramento on June 5.
