Tucson rallied back from an early four-run deficit with six runs in the final four innings to defeat Salt Lake 6-4 in the second game.

The Bees went ahead early with two runs in the opening inning. The first run scored on a bases-loaded walk to Luis Rodriguez, followed by an RBI single from John Hester. Two more runs came around for Salt Lake in the second on Matt Long’s triple and a fielding error by Dean Anna. Daniel Robertson drove in the Padres first run in the third with an RBI single to left, cutting the Bees’ lead to 4-1.

Tucson added a run in the fourth on Cody Decker’s RBI triple. Anna and Gregorio Petit came through with two-out RBI singles in the fifth to knot the score up at four. Decker launched his 12th home run of the season over the left field bullpen in the sixth to hand the Padres the lead. Jaff Decker provided an insurance run with a sacrifice fly to center. Salt Lake loaded the bases in the seventh, but Miles Mikolas was able to hold off the rally to earn his 21st save of the year.

Reliever Kevin Qucakenbush won his fifth game of the season, while Mike Ekstrom lost his third for the Bees. Brad Boxberger kept the Padres in the game with 3.1 scoreless innings of relief.
