The Bees led 3-2 when Salt Lake starter Jarrett Grube hit Carlos Peguero with one out in the sixth. On Grube’s next pitch, Pena launched his 25th home run of the season over the left-field berm to give Omaha a 4-3 lead. The Storm Chasers added an insurance run in the eighth.
John Hester hit a three-run homer in the top of the second inning.
Grube (7-9) allowed four runs on five hits while striking out two in six innings. The Bees had just four hits Wednesday.
