NEW ORLEANS -- Wade Miller scattered two singles in seven innings and Jose Cabrera pitched two innings of hitless relief in leading New Orleans to a 2-0 victory over Salt Lake in a Pacific Coast League game Tuesday night.
The victory ended New Orleans' four-game losing streak, snapped Salt Lake's four-game winning streak and prevented a sweep by the Buzz of its four-game series against the Zephyrs.The game also started 38 minutes late because of rain and was delayed again for 20 minutes because of a power failure after three innings.
New Orleans got all the runs it needed in the fourth inning when Lance Berkman had a leadoff single, moved to second on a walk, advanced to third on a double play and scored on a single by Ryan Miller.
The Zephyrs got an insurance run in the seventh inning when Carlos Hernandez reached first on a fielder's choice, moved to third on a single by Chad Alexander and scored when Salt Lake second baseman Dan Cey committed two errors on an infield grounder.
Miller (8-3) struck out eight and walked two to get the victory, allowing only a single by Jeff Ferguson in the third inning and another by Chris Latham in the sixth.
Fred Rath (1-3), the second of four Salt Lake pitchers, was the loser. He walked two and allowed four of the Zephyrs' 11 hits in 1 2/3 innings.
