Gee, Robinson carry Round Rock to win over Salt Lake

The Round Rock Express opened their series against the Salt Lake Bees with an 8-0 win at Dell Diamond Friday night.

Drew Robinson had two hits and scored three runs, and Dillon Gee allowed just one hit over 7 2/3 innings.

Gee (2-4) picked up the win after he struck out four and walked two.

Drew Stubbs had a big night in his first game at Dell Diamond this year. He was 2-for-3 with a run scored, a double and two RBIs. It’s his third straight year making an appearance with the Express. The Texas Rangers signed the former Texas Longhorn this week.

In the bottom of the first, Round Rock (17-25) scored on a ground out by Jurickson Profar that brought home Robinson. Later in the inning, Cesar Puello hit a home run to give the Express a 3-0 lead. The Express then added two runs in the fifth and three in the sixth. In the fifth, Robinson hit an RBI double and then scored on a single by Stubbs, while Brett Hayes hit a two-run home run in the sixth.

Luis Diaz (1-3) went 4 1/3 innings, allowing four runs and three hits in the Pacific Coast League game. He also struck out two and walked two.

The Bees (24-18) were held scoreless for the second time this season, while the Express’ staff recorded its second shutout of the year.

Travis Snider and Preston Beck each doubled for Round Rock.

The second game of the series starts at 6:05 p.m. at Dell Diamond Saturday.
