Trappers rally to beat Buzz in 11

EDMONTON, Alberta - A base hit by Tony Batista in the bottom of the 11th inning gave the Edmonton Trappers a 5-4 come-from-behind win over the Salt Lake Buzz Thursday.

With one out, Batista lined a Scott Watkins pitch into center field to score Scott Sheldon from second.

Sheldon led off the 11th with a bloop single over the head of Buzz first baseman Brent Brede and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by catcher Izzy Molina.

The Buzz took the lead in the first inning on solo homers by Brian Raabe and Jamie Ogden, then Jeff Horn ripped an RBI double and later scored on Brede's hit.
