Another light schedule as three teams finish their All-Star break.
The Iowa Cubs silenced the Nashville Sounds (Athletics), 3-2.
Strong start today for Jake Buchanan. He got the win after allowing just one run on three hits over six innings. Buchanan did walk four, but he struck out seven.
With Spencer Patton gone, Iowa turned to veteran Joel Peralta to close out the game and he pitched a perfect ninth inning for his first save of the season. Peralta struck out one.
Catcher David Freitas played a hand in two of the three Iowa Runs. He had an RBI single in the second inning and doubled and scored in the fifth. Freitas was 2 for 2 with a walk.
Third baseman Jeimer Candelario was 2 for 4 with a double.
