Three Salt Lake pitchers combined to throw a four-hitter as the Bees rolled to an 8-1 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers on Tuesday night for their third consecutive victory. Starter Wade LeBlanc (9-3) went seven innings and allowed just one first-inning run on four hits while striking out four with no walks. Michael Kohn and Cam Bedrosian each worked a scoreless inning to close out the game.
Omaha took a 1-0 lead in the first inning, but Salt Lake responded in the second inning. With two outs, John Hester hit a two-run homer. The Bees added three more runs in the third. Shawn O’Malley led off with a single and advance to second on a bunt single by Tony Campana. Ryan Wheeler and Hester each had one hit and two RBIs, while Lopez had two hits and an RBI.
