Bees outfieldeer Jake Gatewood celebrates after hitting a walk-off home run to lift the Bees over the Oklahoma City Dodgers on Saturday, August 6.

SALT LAKE CITY – Tied 3-3 in the bottom of the ninth, Salt Lake Bees outfielder Jake Gatewood wasn’t interested in extra innings Saturday night.

The Bees hosted the Oklahoma City Dodgers in game five of a six game series at Smith’s Ballpark on Saturday, August 6.

Three times Salt Lake had fought back from a deficit to tie the game, but with two outs extra innings on the line, Gatewood stepped to the plate facing Mark Washington. After falling behind 0-2, Gatewood watched two balls even up the count.

The left-fielder crushed a 103.5 mile per hour rocket on the next pitch, sending it toward the opposite field where it climbed over the right field wall to give the Bees a 4-3 win.

And a field level view…

The win was the second of the series for Salt Lake as they aim for series split on Sunday afternoon.
