SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (August 6, 2016) – The Salt Lake Bees took the final game of their home series against the Reno Aces 9-1. The Bees, playing as the Salt Lake Angels for the night as a tribute to their 16-year affiliation with the Los Angeles Angels, took four out of five games from the Aces in the series. Starting pitcher Zach Nuding (2-6) allowed just two hits, and one run over five and one-third innings picking up the win for the first time at the Triple-A level since April 9. Matt Buschmann (7-8) took the loss for the Aces.
The Bees scored a pair of runs in the second to jump out to an early lead before exploding for seven runs in the sixth inning to put the game away. Ryan Jackson and Rafael Ortega led the Bees offense, each registering a three-hit outing. Jackson, Quintin Berry and Geovany Soto, on a Major League rehab assignment, each drove in two runs. Berry stole his 32nd base of the season, tying him for fourth all-time in franchise history. The Bees and Aces will meet again tomorrow in the Biggest Little City for a four-game set in Reno to complete the nine games in eight day stretch against the Aces
