After an eventful third inning in which Las Vegas scored six and the Bees battled back with five runs, including a double by Michael Stefanic that extended his franchise record on-base streak to 45 games, Las Vegas poured it on the Bees for the rest of the game.

Salt Lake showed signs of life in the sixth with homers by Jordyn Adams (8) and Jared Oliva (5), but the lead proved insurmountable.
