Green’s solo home run put Salt Lake ahead 1-0 in the first inning. El Paso tied the game in the bottom of the third on Chris Nelson’s two-out RBI single. The Bees went ahead 4-1 after scoring twice in the fourth and once in the fifth. A baserunning move by Jonathan Galvez was responsible for the Chihuahuas second run. Galvez distracted Green on a ground ball hit by Jake Lemmerman and Jeff Francoeur scored when Green misplayed the ball.

This heads up play by Jonathan Galvez in the 6th pulled the Chihuahuas within two and that is a close as they would get.
