Three Salt Lake pitchers combined to throw a six hitter, as the Bees rolled to an 8-1 win over the Albuquerque Isotopes on Thursday night.
Starter Jarrett Grube (6-5) went six innings and allowed just one run on five hits with six strikeouts and one walk. In the sixth, he faced runners at second and third with no outs, but escaped the jam without allowing run.
Chad Cordero worked one scoreless inning and Jason Urquidez closed out the game by retiring all six Albuquerque batters he faced, three of them by strikeout.
Offensively, all nine members of the Salt Lake lineup had at least one hit. Robbie Widlansky belted his first two home runs as a Bee; a two run blast in the fourth that gave the Bees a 2-0 lead and a solo shot in the fifth that made it 5-0. Luis Jimenez added two hits and two runs batted in, while John Hester added a two run homer. Efren Navarro chipped in with three hits.
RAPTORS 8, VOYAGERS 7: Pat Stover, Gerson Nunez and Zach Babitt all knocked in two runs for Ogden, and pitcher Francisco Villa improved his record to 3-4 posting the win. Jacob Rhame gave up three runs in the top of the ninth before finally closing things out for the win.
BREWERS 3, OWLZ 2 (10 INNINGS): After rallying to tie things up in the seventh inning, Orem gave up a run in the bottom of the 10th to fall to Helena.
