Reliever Joe Harris picked up two strikeouts in the eighth and Tom Boleska capped off the ninth with his American Association leading 15th save of the season.
“I came out a little sluggish,” Herron said. “Luckily for me the breaking ball was working and I got some good outs. Getting ahead today was a big thing and throwing quality pitches.”
