Bees Sweep Doubleheader from Beavers, 7-4, 1-0

August 1, 2010 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Portland Beavers News Release

PORTLAND, Ore. - The Salt Lake Bees rode a four-run first inning to a 7-4 win in game one and Kevin Frandsen's solo home run backed Amalio Diaz's five shutout innings in the Bees' 1-0 shutout win in game two as they swept a doubleheader from the Portland Beavers Sunday afternoon at PGE Park.

For Strike-Out-Breast-Cancer Day, the Beavers wore specialized pink and light blue jerseys, which were then sold through an in-game silent auction. Together with Health Net of Oregon, the team raised $9,560 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Peter Bourjos and Mark Trumbo led the Bees (56-53) in game one as they both went 2-for-4 with a double, a homer, two RBIs and two runs. Frandsen and Drew Meyer also had two hits in the opener.

Salt Lake's Eric Junge (2-0) pitched 6 2/3 innings in game one and gave up four runs on eight hits and four walks.

Nathan Culp (0-3), transferred from Class AA San Antonio earlier in the day, took the loss in the first game, surrendering seven runs on eight hits in four innings.

Kyle Phillips and Cedric Hunter were both 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI for Portland (41-68) in game one.

The Bees started game one with a four-run first, thanks to four straight hits, including Frandsen's RBI single and Trumbo's RBI double.

Bourjos took Culp deep to right-center for a two-run homer in the second and Trumbo went deep in the third.

The Beavers got on the board in the fifth with Hunter's RBI double and added two more runs in the sixth on a double play and a Dusty Ryan RBI knock.

Ryan Houston cleaned up the seventh inning for his first save of the season.

In game two, Diaz (3-3) scattered five hits and two walks across five scoreless innings and struck out six on his way to his third win.

Bobby Mosebach pitched two scoreless frames to close out his first save.

Cesar Ramos (2-5) threw just the second two-hitter in the PCL this season, allowing one run in a seven-inning complete game.

Portland loaded the bases with two outs in the second inning but Nick Green grounded out to end the threat.

Josh Barfield led off the bottom of the seventh with a single but was stranded at third when the game ended.

The Beavers and Bees continue their series at PGE Park Monday night at 7:05 p.m. (Pacific).

NOTES: Before the doubleheader, outfielder Aaron Cunningham was optioned from San Diego and right-hander Chase Marona was transferred to Portland from Class A Eugene. Infielders Craig Cooper and Lance Zawadzki were transferred from Portland to Class AA San Antonio and right-hander Scott Munter was placed on the disabled list (retroactive to July 31) with a right foot injury ... Beavers catcher Chris Stewart stole his first base of the season on a broken hit-and-run play in game two ... Portland was shut out for just the third time all season in the second game, tied for the fewest occasions in the PCL.
