BEES 9, REDHAWKS 3

Salt Lake City, the Los Angeles Angels' Triple-A affiliate, scored three runs in the eighth and five more in the ninth to rally for a 9-3 win in front of 4,306 fans Sunday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

Bees 33-year-old designated hitter Brad Hawpe, who slammed 118 homers for the Colorado Rockies earlier in his career, went 3-for-5 with five RBIs. Hawpe's two-run single highlighted a three-run eighth. Hawpe added a three-run homer in the Bees' five-run ninth.

The RedHawks compiled only five hits but led 3-1 heading into the eighth on a Brandon Laird RBI double in the first, Marc Krauss' RBI single in the fifth and Che-Hsuan Lin manufacturing a run in the sixth.

COSART PITCHES WELL

RedHawks starter Jarred Cosart was in position to pick up his fifth win but received a no-decision when the Bees scored a combined eight runs off Oklahoma City relievers Kevin Chapman and Rhiner Cruz.
