Cubs Sweep Bees

August 13, 2019 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Salt Lake Bees News Release

The Salt Lake Bees suffered their third series sweep of the season, as the Iowa Cubs took a 5-2 win on Tuesday afternoon. Iowa broke a scoreless tie with four runs in the third inning, all after the first two batters were retired.

Phillip Evans hit a three run homer and Addison Russell went back-to-back with his third home run of the series. The Bees got on the board in the fourth on a leadoff blast by Jared Walsh, his 30th of the season, which ties the franchise record for homers by a left-handed batter set by David Ortiz in 1999. Iowa would pick up an unearned run in the sixth and Salt Lake closed out the scoring with a inning opening roundtripper by Roberto Pena in the 8th, his 6th of the season.

Salt Lake starter Tyler Carpenter, who was making his Triple-A debut, took the loss, as he went five innings and allowed five runs, four earned, on four hits with four strikeouts and two walks. Sam Freeman came out of the bullpen to throw two scoreless innings and Jeremy Rhoades worked a three up, three down eighth inning. The Bees managed only four hits, as they close out the road trip with a 2-5 record.
