Bees MVP • Eric Young Jr. went 3 for 5 with a home run, three runs scored and an RBI. He came up a triple shy of hitting for the cycle. The Bees haven't had a player hit for the cycle since Matt Brown did it on April 9, 2008.
Hidden Hero • Bees pitcher Manny Banuelos earned the win, pitching three scoreless innings out of the bullpen to keep Tacoma without a run through the first six innings. He allowed two hits and one walk in three innings. Banuelos picked up the win pitching in relief.
Quoteworthy • "It all started with pitching," Williams said. "It was a bullpen day. We used a lot of arms (five pitchers), but they all came in and had shutdown innings. When the pitching staff is cruising like that, it's a little easier to get things easier offensively and kind of keep the momentum on our side. A lot of credit to the bullpen today."
Angel Angle • Los Angeles relief pitcher Huston Street pitched the second perfect inning of his rehab assignment with the Salt Lake Bees on Saturday night. He retired all three batters he faced and recorded two strikeouts in the third inning against Tacoma. Street is slated to pitch against on Sunday, the first time he'll pitch back-to-back days during his rehab assignment.
What's next • The Bees continue their four-game series with Tacoma at 6:35 p.m. Sunday night in Smith's Ballpark.
