Minor League Wrap: Maples shuts down Chihuahuas

The Pelicans winning streak came to an end, but every other team won today.

Three Pelicans, catcher Jhonny Pereda, shortstop Aramis Ademan and right-handed pitcher Tyler Peyton were named to the Carolina League All-Star Game.

Opening Night for the Emeralds is Friday. So this is my last week of early nights.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs split a doubleheader with the El Paso Chihuahuas (Padres), winning game one 6-5 and losing the second one 3-1.

Jen-Ho Tseng didn’t make it out of the first inning this morning, giving up three runs on three hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning. Tseng struck out one.

Rob Zastryzny kept the game close and was in line for the win with only one run allowed over 3.1 innings. Then Alberto Baldonado blew the save when he allowed one run on four hits over two innings. Baldonado walked two and struck out three. One of those walks was intentional, but he also hit one batter.

But Baldonado got the win when Iowa pushed across a run in the bottom of the sixth. Then Dillon Maples pitched the top of the seventh and struck out the side for the save.
