Isotopes shut out Bees

See also

Jeff Bennett and two relievers combined on a four-hit shutout as the Albuquerque Isotopes earned a 1-0 victory over the host Salt Lake Bees on Thursday night. It was only the second time the Bees have ever lost by that score at home in their 20-plus year history.

Bennett (1-1) scattered three hits and three walks while striking out three batters in seven innings. Colt Hynes pitched a scoreless eighth and Jose Dominguez followed with a scoreless ninth for his second save.

The Isotopes (22-25) broke the scoreless tie in the sixth inning. Miguel Rojas hit a leadoff single to center and then stole second base. With one out, Clint Robinson singled up the middle to drive in Rojas with the game's only run.

Rehabbing Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton hit a ground-rule double with one out in the bottom of the frame, but he was left stranded. Salt Lake (16-32) never got a runner past first base the rest of the way.

Albuquerque will return home Friday at 7:05 p.m. to open a four-game series with Reno. The Isotopes will start prospect Zach Lee (4-4, 4.37 ERA) against Aces prospect Andrew Chafin, who will be making his first career Triple-A start.

Notes

The Dodgers released catcher Miguel Olivo before the game. Olivo had been suspended Wednesday after an incident on Tuesday in which he allegedly attacked teammate Alex Guerrero and bit off a piece of his left ear. ... Alex Liddi, who took Olivo's spot on the roster, went 1-for-3 with a strikeout in his first start Thursday. The minor-league veteran started at third base.
