Aviators’ turbulence continues in Salt Lake as Bees win

SALT LAKE CITY — Dustin Garneau hit two of the Salt Lake Bees’ four home runs in a 9-6 Pacific Coast League victory over the Las Vegas Aviators on Monday at Smith’s Ballpark.

Garneau drove in four runs for the Bees (19-24) with a three-run blast in the second inning and a solo shot in the fifth. Garneau has six homers on the season.

The Bees’ Jarrett Parker clubbed a solo homer in the fourth for his sixth and Jose Rojas hammered a grand slam in the seventh for his eighth home run.
