Nathan Haynes had three hits, scored twice and drove in a run to lead the Salt Lake Bees to an 8-5 win over the Tucson Sidewinders on Thursday night. Haynes singled in the first inning, stole second and eventually scored on a sacrifice fly by Brandon Wood. He also delivered a run scoring double in the sixth and later came home when Tucson left fielder Dee Brown dropped a line drive off the bat of Jeff Mathis. Haynes has now hit safely in all six games that he has played in.

Jason Bulger (1-0) picked up the win in relief for Salt Lake and Marcus Gwyn earned his first save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning. Starting pitcher Matt Hensley had to leave the game in the third inning with stiffness in his right elbow. Mike Eylward drove in two runs for Salt Lake and Mathis added two hits and one RBI. Terry Evans singled in the fourth to extend his hitting streak to seven games. Wood's single in the fifth was the 500th of his minor league career.
