It’s been a nice couple of days for the Los Angeles Angels’ top prospects.

On Thursday, outfielder Jo Adell hit a bases-loaded, walk-off single with two outs to win the game for the Salt Lake Bees.

Adell went 3-for-6 in the Bees’ 10-9 win over the Sacramento River Cats, finishing with four RBIs. His two-RBI walk-off single cemented the comeback win, coming after a solo home run by Preston Palmeiro earlier in the inning for a three-run bottom of the ninth.

Adell has been one of the best hitters in Triple-A this season, leading Triple-A West in home runs (18) and RBIs (50). He is batting .275 with a .327 on-base percentage and a .581 slugging percentage in 54 games.

Another top Angels prospect, outfielder Brandon Marsh, hit a home run in his return to Triple-A action on Friday. Marsh had been on the injured list since early June with right shoulder inflammation.

Marsh played a few rehab games with the rookie-league Arizona Complex League Angels at the start of July before returning to Salt Lake. Marsh went yard in his his first at-bat with the Bees, hitting a solo home run to left field.

He also hit a two-RBI triple in the sixth inning of Salt Lake’s 10-7 win over Sacramento on Friday. The win puts the Bees at 28-27 on the season.

In 17 games with Salt Lake, Marsh is batting .200 with a .342 on-base percentage and a .400 slugging percentage.
