Omaha • When the Salt Lake Bees open the Pacific Coast League championship series against Omaha on Tuesday night, they will do so without infielder Tommy Field.
Field was called up by the parent Los Angeles Angels after the Bees clinched their PCL divisional series with a 4-3 victory at Las Vegas on Saturday.
Field has been manager Keith Johnson's leadoff man throughout the postseason. In 81 games with Salt Lake this season, he hit .303 with 11 homers and 49 RBIs. In the fifth inning of the Bees' series-clinching win at Las Vegas, Field hit a go-ahead home run.
