Three Salt Lake pitchers combined on a seven hitter, as the Bees rolled to a 6-2 win over the Colorado Springs Sky Sox on Monday night. Starter Jarrett Grube gave up two runs in the first, but then shut down the Sky Sox over the next five innings. Grube (1-2) went a total of six innings and allowed two runs on five hits with five strikeouts and one walk. Rob Delaney worked a three up, three down seventh and Ryan Brasier closed out the game with two scoreless innings.

The Bees trailed 2-0 in the third, but tied the game, as John Hester doubled, moved to third on a single by Andrew Romine and both scored on a RBI single by Tommy Field with the second run scoring on an error by right fielder Greg Golson. Field would later score the go-ahead run on a groundout by Luis Jimenez. Roberto Lopez belted a two-run homer off of the batter’s eye in center to make it 5-2 in the fourth and Field drove in the final run with a triple in the seventh. Field led Salt Lake with two hits and two runs batted in, while John Hester added two hits as the Bees win the team's fifth consecutive game.

“Our pitching has been very good, and we’re playing catch and scoring enough to take care of those pitching performances," said interim Bees manager Bill Richardson. "Like I said, I timed it right.”
