DES MOINES, Iowa — Three Salt Lake pitchers combined to throw the pitching staff's first shutout of 2010, as the Bees blanked the Iowa Cubs 1-0 on Monday night.
Daniel Davidson (5-1) became Salt Lake's first five-game winner as he allowed no runs on three hits in six innings with a season-high six strikeouts and two walks.
Brian Stokes, who is on an injury rehab assignment from the Angels, put runners at first and third with no outs in the seventh, but got out of the jam and tossed two scoreless innings. Michael Kohn earned his first career triple-A save with a scoreless ninth.
Cory Aldridge provided the Bees with their only run of the game, as he led off the fourth inning with a home run to left field off of Iowa starter Thomas Diamond. Hank Conger led the Bees with three hits, including two doubles, while Aldridge had two hits.
Stokes, 30, was placed on the 15-day disabled list on May 10 with right shoulder fatigue.
