The Bees got off to a promising start going up by two with a four run 3rd inning. However, the Bees quickly fell apart and ended their 4-game stand against the Portland Beavers (Padres-affiliates) with a whopping 13-4 loss.
Despite rumors that Ervin Santana was going to start, Sean O'Sullivan took the hill and looked anything but impressive over his 5 innings of work. Blames of the game can be handed out to both Fernando Rodriguez who gave up 4 runs in the 6th and my personal BOTG, Kevin Jepsen. After a strong seventh, Jepsen gave up five runs in the 8th including two home runs. This all happened with two outs too! When Jepsen finally got pulled I couldn’t help but tell him from my seat right behind the dugout to "start looking for apartments in Salt Lake" because he certainly isn’t going anywhere. The highlights for the Bees were doubles by Freddy Sandoval and Matt Brown. Other than that, the Bees offense was mostly quiet due to the superb pitching of Padres prospect Jonathan Ellis who pitched 2.1 innings and struck out four including a Mr. Brandon Wood.
