LAS VEGAS Giancarlo Alvarado tossed 6 1/3 solid innings and received plenty of run support, as the Salt Lake Bees routed the Las Vegas 51s 13-2 on Wednesday night.
Alvarado (6-2) allowed just one run on six hits with five strikeouts and one walk.
Offensively, the Bees scored at least one run in each of the first six innings, including four unearned runs in the first that put Salt Lake ahead to stay. The first two runs came in on a bases-loaded throwing error by Las Vegas third baseman Terry Tiffee, and Bobby Wilson followed with a two-run single. Salt Lake would then add one run in the second, third, fourth and fifth innings and three in the sixth.
Bobby Wilson led the Bees with two hits and four runs batted in, while Matt Brown had a team-high four hits with two runs scored. Chris Walker and Jordan Czarniecki each added two hits and two RBIs. Freddy Sandoval and Adam Pavkovich each chipped in two hits, including a home run, while Sean Rodriguez and Brandon Wood had two hits apiece.
ROSTER MOVES: The Bees announced Wednesday that they have recalled left-handed pitcher Daniel Davidson from Double-A Arkansas and reassigned right-handed pitcher Marco Albano to Single-A Rancho Cucamonga.
Davidson, 27, has appeared in nine games for the Travelers in 2008, with a 0-0 record and 2.25 ERA. He returns to Salt Lake after a four-game stint with the Bees in 2006. The Panama City, Fla. native was originally selected by the Angels in the 13th round of the 2003 draft. Albano, 24, made his Triple-A debut with the Bees on June 28, his only game played for Salt Lake in 2008. He registered one strikeout in one pitched. Albano owns a 2-3 record and a 7.05 ERA with 33 strikeouts in 25 games with the Quakes this season. The Melrose, Mass. native signed with the Angels in 2005, following four years as a utility player at Boston College.
