Bees defeat Cubs behind Enright

SALT LAKE CITY -- Starting pitcher Barry Enright tossed one of his best games of the season Thursday as the Bees downed the Iowa Cubs 9-3.

Enright scattered eight hits in 6 2/3 innings, allowing only three runs in earning his sixth win of the season.

"Especially coming off of that rash of bullpen days that we had, it's refreshing to see our starters find their groove, and get deep into ballgames," said Bees manager Keith Johnson.

Enright got plenty of run support as the Bees notched 13 hits and went 7-for-15 with runners in scoring position. Trent Oeltjen had three hits, a walk, two stolen bases and four runs scored to lead the attack.

The Bees broke the game open in the sixth, turning a 2-2 tie into a 7-2 lead on a two-run triple by Drew Heid and RBI singles by Robbie Widlansky, Luke Carlin, and Matt Long.
