9/6 Cashner & Wells
Andrew Cashner, the Cubs’ No. 1 pick in the 2008 Draft, threw seven scoreless innings in Tennessee’s 3-1 win over West Tenn Saturday night. Cashner was perfect through five, and gave up two hits for the game. Brian Schlitter pitched a scoreless ninth for his 22nd save.
* In addition to being the first Cubs rookie pitcher to reach double-digits in wins since Kerry Wood in 1998, Randy Wells recently passed Sean Marshall’s 125 2/3 innings pitched in 2006. Wells has now pitched more innings than any other Cub rookie since Kerry Wood tossed 166 2/3 innings in 1998.
