GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Edward Cabrera got Luis Curbelo to hit into a double play in the fifth inning, leading the Greensboro Grasshoppers to a 6-2 win over the Kannapolis Intimidators on Wednesday.

The double play came with the bases loaded and prevented the Intimidators from scoring in the inning.

Up 3-2, the Grasshoppers extended their lead in the sixth inning when Isael Soto hit a two-run single.

The Grasshoppers tacked on another run in the seventh when Thomas Jones hit an RBI single, scoring Ricardo Cespedes.

Greensboro right-hander Cabrera (4-6) picked up the win after allowing two runs on six hits over five innings. Opposing starter Zach Lewis (2-3) took the loss in the South Atlantic League game after allowing three runs and four hits over 4 1/3 innings. Jeremy Ovalle pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings for his first save of the season.

Greensboro took advantage of some erratic Kannapolis pitching, drawing a season-high 10 walks in its victory.
