Jett Bandy's bases-loaded single with one out in the 10th inning lifted Salt Lake to a 6-5 win over Sacramento on Friday night at Smith's Ballpark. The Bees overcame a 5-0 deficit to defeat the River Cats for the 10th straight time this season.
Turning Point • In the 10th, Todd Cunningham drew a one-out walk. Nick Buss followed with a single to right. After an intentional walk to Kaleb Cowart, Bandy lined a 2-0 pitch up the middle for the game-winning RBI.
Bees MVP • Kyle Kubitza went 2-for-3 with two walks. He also made an outstanding defensive play in the second inning. Battling the sun, he grabbed a long drive by Sacramento's Gorkys Hernandez on the warning track in left.
Hidden Hero • Salt Lake reliever A.J. Achter pitched two scoreless innings and got credit for the win. He allowed only one hit. He threw 21 pitches, including 13 strikes.
Flashing Leather • Sacramento's Jarrett Parker led off the sixth with a blast to straight-away center field. Salt Lake's Shane Robinson turned the possible triple into the first out, however, with a spectacular over-the-shoulder diving catch.
Angel Angle • The Angels have recalled pitcher Cam Bedrosian from Salt Lake. In 8 1/3 innings with the Bees, he allowed three runs and struck out 14. "… Cam has electric stuff," manager Mike Scioscia told reporters in Anaheim.
History lesson • On April 29, 1999, Clint Sodowski pitched a one-hitter and Memphis defeated the Salt Lake Buzz, 3-0. He retired 26 straight batters.
