The Salt Lake Bees scored a season high ten runs in the sixth inning to rally for a 12-7 win over the Nashville Sounds on Sunday night.
The Bees fell behind 6-0 after three innings, but plated two runs in the fourth before exploding in the sixth. With the bases loaded and one out, Jake Yacinich started the scoring with a two run single. Eric Young, Jr. followed with a two run double to tie the game at 6-6 and he scored the go ahead run on a single to right by David Fletcher. Jefry Marte then drilled a 2-0 pitch over the left field wall for a two run homer to make it 9-6. Carlos Perez reached on an infield single and Rey Navarro singled to right and they advanced to third and second on a ground out. Sherman Johnson singled to left to bring in both runners and he would advance to second on the throw to the plate. Bo Way would cap off the inning with a single to right to bring home Johnson.
The ten runs marked the most runs in an inning since July 24, 2012 when they scored ten in second versus Sacramento. It was the 14th time in franchise history that Salt Lake has scored ten or more runs in an inning and of those, it was just the fourth on the road. The Bees banged out eighteen hits in the game, as all nine members of the starting lineup had at least one hit. Johnson led the way with three hits and three runs batted in, while Yacinich added three hits and two RBI. Salt Lake starter Daniel Wright (5-7) picked up the win, as he went five innings and allowed six runs on six hits with three strikeouts and three walks.
