Bees nearly no-hit in 6-0 loss to Iowa

The Salt Lake Bees opened a seven-game Midwest road trip with a 6-0 loss to the Iowa Cubs on Wednesday night at Principal Park in Des Moines, Iowa.

Salt Lake (57-52) didn’t have a single baserunner through the first 7 1/3 innings until Jared Walsh’s base hit off reliever Rob Zastryzny broke up the Cubs’ bid at perfection. Bo Way had the Bees’ only other hit as Salt Lake didn’t draw a single walk in the game.

Taylor Davis got the Cubs (41-67) on the board with a two-run home run in the bottom of the fourth inning. Chris Coghlan hit an RBI single, Mark Zaguna and Jason Vosler each had RBI doubles and Davis added a run-scoring single as part of a four-run seventh inning for Iowa.

Iowa starter Alec Mills pitched six perfect innings to pick up the victory, striking out four. Bees starter Griffin Canning fell to 1-3 on the season, allowing two runs on six hits with two walks and three strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings.

Wednesday’s loss was the third in as many games for Salt Lake, which trails first-place El Paso by 2 1/2 games in the Pacific Southern Division.

The series against the Cubs continues through Friday before the Bees head to Omaha for a four-game set against the Storm Chasers.
