Whiting, Gotay lead Springfield to victory




Ruben Gotay’s two-run double in the third inning provided the Springfield Cardinals all the offensive they would need on Tuesday in a 2-0 win over the Tulsa Drillers.

Springfield starting pitcher Boone Whiting went seven innings, allowing four hits, no walks and striking out seven. He now has a 2.93 ERA for the season.

Kevin Siegrist allowed a hit but struck out two in the eighth inning, and Michael Blazek worked the ninth to earn his sixth save of the year.

The double from Gotay plated Whiting and Mike O’Neill. The Cardinals finished the game with six hits, two coming from Xavier Scruggs.

Springfield won three games in the four-game series with Tulsa. The Cardinals begin a four-game home series with Northwest Arkansas on Wednesday. Seth Blair is scheduled to start for Springfield.
 
In roster moves on Tuesday, catcher Travis Tartamella was transferred from Memphis to Springfield and catcher Juan Castillo was called up from Palm Beach to Springfield.
