The Iowa Cubs blanked the Colorado Sky Sox, 1-0.
That Andrew Cashner guy is good. Tonight he went seven innings and allowed only two hits. He retired the first 13 batters he faced before allowing a single to Chris Iannetta, and then got the next batter to hit into a double play. Cashner struck out seven and didn't walk anyone, although he did hit one batter.
Brian Schlitter pitched the final two innings to grab his fourth save. Schlitter gave up one hit. He didn't walk anyone and struck out two.
James Adducci was 2 for 4 and scored the only run of the game. Darwin Barney was 2 for 4. That shouldn't surprise anyone these days. He's hitting .400 in May.
The Tennessee Smokies kept the Jacksonville Suns from rising, 10-8.
Starter Christopher Carpenter improved his record to 3-1 after allowing three runs, two earned, in five innings. He gave up seven hits and walked two. Carpenter fanned three.
Scott Maine was perfect over the final two innings for his third save. He struck out two Sun batters.
Catcher Robinson Chirinos continues to shine this season. Tonight he was just 4 for 4 with three doubles. Chirinos had two RBI. Chirinos is hitting .347/.406/.628 so far this year, compared to his lifetime line of .255/.344/.410. Maybe some guys just need ten years in the minors to get the hang of it.
Left fielder Ty Wright also is having a big year, and he hit his eighth home run tonight. It was a three-run blast in the second inning. Wright also had a double and a walk in a 2 for 3 night. He scored twice and had four RBI total.
Shortstop Nate Samson was 3 for 5 with a run scored and an RBI.
