In short: A 3-run homer by Robinzon Diaz in the seventh inning proved to be the difference, allowing the Bees to withstand a four-run eighth by Tucson. It also preserved a solid start by Garrett Richards. The right-hander is 2-0 after allowing just three hits in 7 2?3 innings. Andrew Romaine drove in two runs for Salt Lake, while Mike Trout added three hits.
Bees manger Keith Johnson's take: "Ultimately we came in, shut the door and got the 'W.'"
Up next: vs. Tucson, 6:35 p.m., today
