Chicago Cubs hurler Randy Wells allowed just one earned run over 3 2/3 innings of rehab work, but suffered the loss as the Peoria Chiefs fell to the Quad Cities River Bandits 3-1 Tuesday night on two unearned runs in front of 1,390 fans. Both teams started major leaguers as Quad Cities started St. Louis Cardinals reliever Brian Tallet who struck out five of the six batters he faced. Peoria is now 20-18 this season and 11-6 at home. Quad Cities answered in the fourth with three runs in Wells’ final inning. With nobody out, Patrick Elkins ripped a two-run double into right field to give the River Bandits their first lead of the game. Yunior Castillo made it 3-1 with a line drive single to right that brought Chris Edmondson across home plate. Wells threw 48 pitches before he was replaced by Austin Kirk, who came in and got Peoria out of the inning.
