Redbirds Roll to 11-5 Win over Salt Lake

June 12, 2019 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Memphis Redbirds News Release

MEMPHIS, Tennessee - The Memphis Redbirds (28-38) broke a 4-4 tie with five runs in the bottom of the seventh inning en route to an 11-5 win over the Salt Lake Bees (Angels) Wednesday night at AutoZone Park.

Memphis batted around in its five-run seventh, and a Tyler O'Neill two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth made it 11-4 in favor of the Redbirds.

The Bees (29-35) led 3-0 after the top of the first and 4-1 after two-and-a-half innings, before Rangel Ravelo hit a two-run home run in the third to make it 4-3. Ravelo then crossed the plate as the tying run in the bottom of the fifth on a John Nogowski double to deep center field.

Evan Kruczynski battled through 5.0 innings on the mound after a tough first inning, finishing with four runs allowed on eight hits. Four Redbirds relievers threw the final 4.0 innings, with Dominic Leone and Hunter Cervenka striking out the final six Bees of the game.

Ravelo was on base five times, singling three times and drawing a walk in addition to his home run. He scored four of Memphis' 11 runs. O'Neill ended the night 3-for-4 with a walk and three RBI.

Every Memphis starter reached base at least once, and seven scored a run.

Memphis had lost its previous 10 home games prior to tonight's win and scored 21 runs in those 10 contests.

The Redbirds and Bees continue their series tomorrow night at 7:05. The Redbirds are home through a day game on Tuesday.
