The Salt Lake Bees completed a three-game sweep of the Fresno Grizzlies and finished off their seven-game homestand with five wins thanks to a 6-2 victory at Smith's Ballpark on Monday night. The Bees collected 15 hits, including three extra-base hits.
The Bees (6-6) jumped out to a three-run lead in the first inning thanks to consecutive RBI singles by Dustin Ackley (who has now reached base safely in 11 straight games), Ryan LaMarre and Nolan Fontana. Fresno (5-7) responded with a two-run home run by Preston Tucker in the top of the third to make it a one-run game. The Bees tacked on a run in the fifth on another RBI single by LaMarre (2-for-3, 2 RBIs), and they added two more on a bases-loaded single by Eric Young Jr., who went 5-for-5 with a double and a run scored.
