Cards deny Travs sweep with shutout

The loss snapped a five game winning streak

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The Arkansas Travelers five game winning streak came to a screeching halt on Sunday afternoon at Dickey-Stephens Park as three Springfield Cardinal pitchers combined on a one hit shutout in a 1-0 win. Andre Pallante (Win, 5 IP), Edgar Escobar (3 IP) and Grant Black (Sv, IP) kept the Travs offense at bay all afternoon. Tyler Herb pitched well in his season debut for the Travs going six innings but gave up a solo homer for the only damage in the game.

Moments That Mattered

* Nick Plummer led off the top of the fifth with a no doubt home run to right field.

* Bobby Honeyman had the Travs’ only hit of the game, a leadoff double in the bottom of the fifth. He got to third with two out but was stranded.
