Fiske Ks five in Missions shutout


Justin Fiske struck out five Missions as the Double-A Springfield Cardinals shut out the San Antonio squad 1-0 yesterday.

Relievers' Luke Gregerson and Luis Perdomo lent their hurling hands, Gregerson earning his sixth hold while Perdomo tallied his third.

Fernando Salas notched his 22nd save on the season, representing yet another pitcher in the St. Louis Cardinals organization who may one day make a bid for the role of closer with the parent club.

Each team had eight hits.

James Rapoport went 1-for-4, scoring the AA-Cards only run. Rapoport's hit was a double.

Mark Shorey had a 1-for-4 game, his hit a triple.
