Three Salt Lake pitchers combine to throw a one-hitter, as the Bees blank New Orleans 1-0.
Starter Parker Bridwell (2-0) went seven innings and allowed the one hit, a leadoff single in the third by Matt Juengel. He was immediately taken off the base paths, as Bridwell induced Peter Mooney to ground into a double play. Eduardo Paredes worked a 1-2-3 eighth inning and Damien Magnifico turned a three up, three down ninth for his first save of the season. The three Salt Lake pitchers faced the minimum 27 batters in the game, as they turned the first 1-0 win for the Bees since April 23, 2015 at home versus Fresno.
The Bees scored the only run of the game in the sixth inning, as Shane Robinson reached with a one out single. Kaleb Cowart followed with a line drive that was misjudged by centerfielder Isaac Galloway, as it carried over his head to the wall for an RBI double. Robinson and Francisco Arcia led the way with two hits each, as Salt Lake has now won eight of its last ten games and holds a two and one-half game lead over second place Albuquerque in the Pacific Southern Division.
