7/15 Minor matters
Albuquerque scored four runs in the top of the 18th to beat Iowa 5-1 on Sunday. The 5 1/2 hour game featured 17 pitches as the I-Cubs tied a franchise record for most innings played, dating to Aug. 1, 1999, at Tacoma. Jake Arrieta started, and gave up one run on three hits over six innings while striking out nine. Jeffry Antigua threw six scoreless innings of relief. It’s the Triple-A All-Star break, so no game Monday.
