Bees MVP • Outfielder Bo Way went 1 for 3 with three RBIs, a sacrifice bunt and an outfield assist. Way's sacrifice bunt in the second gave the Bees a 3-0 lead, and his two-run single with the bases loaded in the fourth pushed the lead to 5-0.
Hidden Hero • Starting pitcher Parker Bridwell went five scoreless innings and tied a Bees season best with seven strikeouts. The game marked Bridwell's first Triple-A start as well as his Bees debut. The Angels acquired Bridwell via trade from the Baltimore Orioles on April 17.
Flashing Leather • Way threw out Iowa's Mark Zagunis trying to go first-to-third on an RBI single in the eighth inning. Way's throw came in almost perfectly to third baseman Sherman Johnson. That was Way's fourth outfield assist of the season.
Angel Angle • Angels infielder C.J. Cron started at first base and played the entire game for the Bees. The former University of Utah standout hit a double in his second at-bat and went 2-for-4 with two doubles in the game.
HISTORY LESSON • The Salt Lake Bees have won the season series against the Iowa Cubs in four of the past five seasons. That includes sweeps in 2013 and 2014. Bees manager Keith Johnson has gone 15-6 against the Cubs as Bees skipper.
WHAT'S NEXT • The Bees will continue their series against Iowa on Friday night at 6:35 in Smith's Ballpark.
