Brad Mills worked seven and one-third strong innings to help lead the Salt Lake Bees to a 10-3 win over the Oklahoma City RedHawks on Tuesday night. Mills (5-7) allowed two runs on nine hits with three strikeouts and four walks, as he snapped his own personal three game losing streak. The Bees jumped in front in the first inning, as Andrew Romine opened with a triple. After Trevor Crowe walked, Kole Calhoun singled to center to bring home Romine. One out later, Efren Navarro singled to score Crowe to make it 2-0. Calhoun would eventually score on a wild pitch by RedHawks' starter Jose Cisnero. Salt Lake would add one more run in the second, two in the third and one in the fourth to open up a 7-0 lead. Luis Jimenez would cap off the Bees' scoring with a three run homer in the eighth inning.
"The guys were out there playing for each other," stated Keith Johnson, Bees manager. "It's a team. It's a family. If one guy is not getting the job done, another guy is."
Hank Conger led the Bees' twelve hit attack with three hits and two runs batted in, while Romine added three hits and two runs scored. Navarro and Ed Lucas added two hits and one RBI, as Salt Lake picks up its sixth consecutive victory.
