COLORADO SPRINGS — The Salt Lake Bees jumped on Colorado Springs' starting pitcher Esmil Rogers with ten runs in the first two innings and coasted to a 10-2 win over the Sky Sox on Thursday night. Reggie Willits opened the game with a single and scored on a double by Freddy Sandoval. One out later, Sandoval came home on a two base hit by Brandon Wood, who strolled home on a home run by Chris Pettit, as the Bees grabbed a 4-0 lead. Salt Lake put the game away with a six run second, which was highlighted by RBI doubles by Pettit and Luis Figueroa.

All nine members of the Bees' starting lineup had at least one hit and they were led by Sandoval, who had four hits and drove in two runs.
