5/23 Minor matters & Cashner

Andrew Cashner threw seven shutout innings, giving up two hits and striking out seven, to help Iowa beat Colorado Springs, 1-0, on Saturday. Cashner retired the first 13 batters he faced and only three reached base (two hits, one hit batter). The seven innings were a career high. He did not walk a batter. The Cubs’ No. 1 Draft pick in 2008, Cashner now has a 0.95 ERA in three Triple-A starts.

Chris Carpenter gave up three runs on seven hits over five innings in Tennessee’s 10-8 win over Jacksonville. Ty Wright hit a three-run homer with two outs in the second and now has 41 RBIs, tied for first in the Southern League. Robinson Chirinos was 4-for-4.

Rafael Dolis threw 5 1/3 shutout innings in Daytona’s 6-1 win over Fort Myers. Dolis scattered six hits and struck out six. Rebel Ridling extended his hitting streak to seven games and was batting .423 in that stretch.

Hak-Ju Lee had three hits in Peoria’s 4-3 loss to Quad Cities. Greg Rohan also had three hits and two RBIs. Jeffry Antigua gave up four runs on six hits over four innings and took the loss.
