Tough. Gritty. Solid. Use whatever adjective that comes to mind to describe the Bees 5-4 win in Cedar Rapids on Sunday. The Bees lost a 3-0 lead and fought back with one run in the sixth inning on an RBI single from CF Jose Rivero and a run in the eighth inning on a single from C Beau Taylor. Today on the 4th of July, the Bees have a change to go over five hundred for the first time in the second half. And that’s a great fact to be able to write/talk about on this holiday. I hope you enjoy the 4th.
