Luis Figueroa's two-run single capped a five-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning and the Salt Lake Bees won for the 10th time in their last 12 games as they beat the Portland Beavers 5-4 at Spring Mobile Ballpark Thursday night.

Down 4-0, the Bees (54-51) rallied for five runs in the inning against Beavers starter Cesar Carrillo and reliever Luis Perdomo (3-3). Former Beaver Paul McAnulty led off with his second double of the game and Terry Evans walked. With one out, Drew Meyer doubled to center to plate McAnulty and chase Carrillo. Two more runs scored when Portland shortstop Lance Zawadzki threw away a groundball on a force attempt. Figueroa then grounded a single back up the middle to put the Bees on top for good.
