Troy Scribner tossed a complete game, two hit shutout to lead the Salt Lake Bees to a 7-0 win over the Sacramento River Cats on Saturday night. Scribner, who was making his Triple-A debut, started out the game by retiring the first eleven batters he faced before San Francisco Giants third baseman Matt Duffy, who is with Sacramento on a Major League injury rehab assignment, lined a single to centerfield. The only other hit he allowed was two out single in the eighth inning by Kelby Tomlinson. Scribner struck out five and walked two and only went to three balls in the count on the two walks. It was the first complete game by a Salt Lake pitcher since Caleb Clay blanked Las Vegas 3-0 on July 20, 2014 and it was their first complete game two hitter since Trevor Bell did it on June 16, 2009 against Colorado Springs.
The Bees scored the only runs they needed on a two run single by Kaleb Cowart in the third inning, which extended his hitting streak to thirteen games. They would add one in the seventh on an RBI single by Quintin Berry and four in the eighth on a wild pitch, a sacrifice fly by Angel Rosa and capped off on a two run single by Berry. Nick Buss and Todd Cunningham each had two hits for Salt Lake and Rosa added two hits and one run batted in.
