I-Cubs Survive Late Scare, Beat Round Rock

That finish was sketchy to say the least.  The game was all but over heading into the bottom of the ninth but Iowa pitchers could not find the plate and the result was Round Rock almost pulling off the upset.  It was a headliner night for the Cubs big prospects as Castillo, Jackson, and Rizzo had solid efforts.  Brett Jackson was back in the lineup after a day off yesterday and delivered with a solo home run late in the game which turned out to be an important run.  Welington Castillo continued his hot start going 3-for-4 with a home run, and Rizzo went 3-for-4 with two home runs on the night.  That brings Rizzo HR total to five in just nine games so far.  Jay Jackson had a solid outing going 5 innings and only allowing two runs on five hits.  Full box score after the jump.
