The Burlington Bees came out victorious on Tuesday night, defeating the Peoria Chiefs 3-2. Everett Teaford actually threw a gem through six innings, but allowed two base hits and a run to open the seventh before being yanked out of the game. Henry Barrera couldn't pick him up and allowed the other inherited runner to score. Brady Everett had another big game offensively, going 2-for-4 with an RBI, and his batting average is now up to .297. Southpaw Matt Campbell returns to the Bees from Wilmington to make a spot start for the injured Mario Santiago on Wednesday. Santiago took a ball of his hand in his last start, but he isn't expected to miss much time and will be back after the Bees' All-Star break. In other news, Bees' shortstop Chris McConnell has been promoted to the Wilmington Blue Rocks.
