SALT LAKE CITY – Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Zac MacMath and midfielder Nick Besler will throw the first pitch this evening when the Salt Lake Bees host the Oklahoma City Dodgers.

The game is scheduled to begin at 6:35 p.m. and will mark the first of six home games against the Dodgers.

The Bees enter the homestead having won their previous three series, most recently beating the Reno Aces on 6-4 last Sunday. Currently, the Bees sit 3rd in the MILB Pacific Coast League and have won 6 of their previous 10 games.

MacMath has been in stellar form for Real Salt Lake in 2022. He has provided much needed consistency at the goalkeeper position and is having a break out year for the Claret and Cobalt.

Besler is also having an impact on the pitch, he started last weekends 2-2 draw against San Jose and has been seeing an increase in minutes in the heart of the midfield as of late.

Mastroeni told KSL Sports on Tuesday, August 2, that Besler has been performing very well in training over the recent weeks which has warranted his increase in minutes played.

The Salt Lake Bees play at Smith’s Ballpark, located at 77 West, 1300 South in Salt Lake City.
