The Salt Lake Bees beat the Fresno Grizzlies 9-7 on Monday night thanks to one of the strangest plays that the 8,070 fans at Spring Mobile Ballpark have probably ever seen.
Salt Lake left fielder Chris Nelson was 2 for 3 with a home run, two RBIs, two runs and a walk, but it was his controversial single and ensuing madness in the seventh inning that ended up bringing home the tying and winning runs.
Trailing 7-6 with two outs in the seventh inning, the Bees had Matt Long on second base and Efren Navarro on first base. Nelson hit a soft grounder to Sacramento first basemen Todd Linden, who fielded the ball and tossed to pitcher Dan Runzler covering first base. But Runzler missed the bag with his foot and Nelson was called safe.
