5/27 Cashner relief outing
Andrew Cashner pitched one inning in relief Thursday in the Iowa Cubs’ 8-5 loss to Salt Lake City. Cashner has been switched to the ‘pen temporarily to get accustomed to that role just in case he’s needed on the big league team. He gave up a double to the first batter he faced and that hitter eventually scored on an error by Micah Hoffpauir. Cashner gave up two more hits but struck out the last two batters to end the inning.
