The Minor League Game of the Week
Mike Eylward hit a grand-slam, double and two singles on July 18, 2007 when the Bees faced the Tacoma Rainiers.
July 18, 2007 — The Salt Lake Bees go extra innings with the Tacoma Rainiers in a Pacific Coast League contest.
Welcome to the Mike Eylward show. "Ellie" was 4 for 6, hitting a grand-slam, double, and two singles.
It helped, but it wasn’t enough, because this was a typical Salt Lake City baseball game. The high altitude (4,500 feet) and ample power alleys inevitably result in high scoring contests. So this was a real roller coaster of a ball game. Just when you think one team has it put away … the other comes back to take the lead.
Outfielder Adam Jones and pitcher Kameron Mickolio, just traded to the Baltimore Orioles in the Erik Bedard deal, appear in the game for Tacoma, the Seattle Mariners’ Triple-A affiliate.
