South Bend Cubs pitcher Preston Morrison extended his scoreless streak to 28.1 innings by blanking the Fort Wayne TinCaps for seven innings in South Bend’s 12-2 win Wednesday.

The right-hander got the win, improving to 9-3 with a 2.44 ERA this season. He struck out nine while giving up only three hits and a walk Wednesday.

In 81 innings this season, he has a 73-to-22 strikeouts-to-walks ratio, a 1.14 WHIP, and a .231 opponents batting average.

Morrison recently was named the Chicago Cubs minor-league player of the month for June. He went 4-1 with a 0.83 ERA (three earned runs in 32.2 innings) in five June starts, striking out 26 batters while walking only five.
