Press releaseSALT LAKE CITY -- For the second consecutive night, the Salt Lake Bees rallied with three runs in the bottom of the ninth to win a game as they edged the Albuquerque Isotopes 12-11 Saturday.

Bobby Wilson opened the inning with a walk and moved to second on a single to center by Mark Trumbo. After Hank Conger bunted the runners over to second and third, Hainley Statia drilled the first pitch from veteran reliever Luis Ayala into the right center gap for a two run triple to tie the game.

After the bases were loaded with back-to-back intentional walks, Terry Evans hit a ground ball to first. John Lindsey threw to the plate to force out Statia, but catcher Lucas May's relay to first sailed down the right field line to allow Gary Patchett to score the winning run.
