5/26 Minor League report

Luis Valbuena hit a solo homer in the ninth to lift the Iowa Cubs to a 2-1 victory Friday night over Memphis. Rodrigo Lopez started the game but was pulled after throwing one pitch because of tightness in his groin, which he felt warming up. Jay Jackson stepped in, and threw five innings of one-run, three-hit relief. He walked two and struck out five. Scott Maine earned the win in relief.

Eric Jokisch gave up two runs on one hit and one walk over five innings in Tennessee’s 4-3 win over Mobile. Jae-Hoon Ha and Luis Flores each hit home runs. Jim Adduci had two hits, an RBI and a stolen base.

Austin Kirk gave up seven hits over eight scoreless innings but did not get a decision in Daytona’s 2-1 loss to Clearwater. Micah Gibbs, Rubi Silva and Dustin Harrington each had two hits.

Starling Peralta gave up one run on five hits over four innings in Peoria’s 3-1 win over Clinton. Zeke DeVoss had two hits, including a double, and Luis Liria converted his first save, pitching three innings in relief.
