Nolan Fontana's walk-off inside-the-park home run — the first in Salt Lake Bees history — gave the Bees a 5-4 win over the Iowa Cubs in 11 innings in front of an announced 10,151 on Saturday night at Smith's Ballpark. The Bees have now won five straight and six of their past seven. Fontana's round-tripper was the Bees' 15th inside-the-park home run in franchise history and the first inside-the-park homer since June 25, 2013.
Fontana hit the first pitch from Cubs relief pitcher Dylan Floro into the left-center field gap where Cubs outfielders Mark Zagunis and John Andreoli converged. Zagunis made a diving attempt at a catch, but the ball glanced off his glove. Andreoli bobbled the ball slightly upon picking it up while Fontana motored around the bases.
