Trumbo, Budde Help Bees Beat Beavers Again
Mark Trumbo went 3-for-5 with two RBIs and Ryan Budde drove in three runs to lead the Salt Lake Bees past the Portland Beavers 8-3 at Spring Mobile Ballpark Wednesday night.
Michael Ryan added his fourth home run for the Bees (53-51), who had six of their 12 hits go for extra bases. Ryan, Budde, Nate Sutton and Peter Bourjos had two hits apiece to give the Bees their ninth win in their last 11 games.
Craig Stansberry went 4-for-4 with a walk, and, in the ninth inning, hit his 89th double in a Beavers uniform to tie Jon Knott for the modern franchise record (since 2001). Mike Baxter had two doubles and three walks and Josh Barfield hit a two-run single for the Beavers (39-65), who left 10 runners on base, including seven in scoring position.
Veteran Ryan Vogelsong made his Bees debut by striking out five batters and allowing three hits over two scoreless innings before Matt Shoemaker (1-1) scattered four hits and six walks across 5 2/3 innings for the win, giving up all three runs.
Radhames Liz (6-6) took the loss after giving up four runs on eight hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings.
The Bees peppered Liz with five straight singles to start the third, scoring the first three runs of the game. Luis Figueroa, Ryan and Trumbo each picked up RBIs in the output.
Salt Lake added a run in each of the fifth, sixth and seventh to go up 6-0. Trumbo hit an RBI triple in the fifth, Sutton doubled and scored on a sac fly by Budde in the sixth and Ryan went deep off Greg Burke in the seventh.
The Beavers, who left six runners in scoring position over the first seven innings, loaded the bases with two outs in the eighth and finally cashed in with Barfield's two-run single to right. Nick Green followed with an RBI single of his own to bring Portland within three.
Portland reliever Aaron Poreda ran into control problems in the eighth, walking two and plunking two as the Bees took advantage with Budde's two-run double.
Bobby Cassevah got the last four outs for his third save.
The Beavers and Bees continue their series Thursday night at 6:05 p.m. (Pacific).
NOTES: Beavers first baseman Kyle Phillips went 0-for-5 to snap his season-long 12-game hitting streak. Phillips left 10 men on base ... Sutton is 5-for-5 with three doubles and a triple in the first two games of the series.
