Bees fans have a blast at opening day

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Sports) - The 2013 Salt Lake Bees season opened on a high note with a 9-5 win over the Tucson Padres.
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Sports) - Thousands of fans poured into Spring Mobile Ballpark to see the 2013 season opener for the Salt Lake Bees.

The weather held up, and the Bees delivered a 9-5 victory over the Tucson Padres.

Barry Enright tossed 5.2 innings of one-run baseball with seven strikeouts while Salt Lake scored nine runs on 10 hits with six RBI. Catcher Chris Snyder tallied three RBI of his own.

"Enright did a great job for us," said Bees manager Keith Johnson. "He got himself into trouble, just one inning I believe. But for the most part he did a great job. He made his pitches when he had to. And our guys on offense took advantage of a couple rare mistakes."

The game was tied 4-4 until the bottom of the seventh. Luis Rodriguez doubled down the right-field line and moved over to third on a Luis Jimenez groundout. Three walks later and Rodriguez scored followed by three more Bees runs on a Padres fielding error. Efren Navarro would score later in the inning to reach the final score of 9-5.

"I was pleased with the way that we carried ourselves tonight, regardless of the score. "That's how I am as a manager. All I care about is how our guys go out and compete on a nightly basis."
