COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo — Colorado Springs was able to fend off a late rally by the Bees, as the Sky Sox edged Salt Lake 8-7 on Thursday night.
The Bees trailed 6-0 after five innings, but scored three in the fifth to get on the board with the final two coming home on a double by Efren Navarro. The Sky Sox got two runs back in the bottom of the sixth on a double by Brendan Harris, but the Bees answered with four in the seventh to get to within one run, as Paul McAnulty led off with a home run, Ed Lucas scored on a balk, Luis Jimenez had a run scoring ground out and Navarro singled in a run.
They had a chance to tie the game or take the lead, but Paul McAnulty's sinking liner was caught by a sliding Matt McBride in right field with the bases loaded.
Salt Lake had one more shot in the ninth, as Luis Jimenez singled with one out. He stole second and third base, but the game ended as after Efren Navarro walked with two outs, Cory Aldridge lined out to shortstop.
Bees' starter Trevor Bell (1-6) took the loss, as he went four innings and allowed six runs on ten hits with three strikeouts and two walks.
Navarro led the Bees with two hits and three runs batted in, while McAnulty added two hits and one RBI.
