5/23: Around the Cubs Minor League System
Here is a recap of the Cubs minor league system from 5/23/12, enjoy.
Nothing went right for Peoria on Wednesday as they were pounded by Clinton 11-0. The Chiefs only managed five hits on the day, two of which from Yaniel Cabezas. It got worse on the mound as Jose Rosario was not very good in 3 and 2/3rds of an inning, he gave up nine runs, all earned, on nine hits. The bright spot was Jeffery Lorick tossing two more spotless innings while striking out three, his ERA is now 0.52.
The D-Cubs staged a comeback and looked like they were on their way to a victory Wednesday, but that was before St. Lucie had a rally of their own en route to an 8-7 victory. Ronald Torreyes looking to get his season back on track went 3-for-3 with a double, and two RBI’s. Greg Rohan launched his seventh home run of the season in the loss. Frank Del Valle struggled on the mound for Daytona as he gave up five runs in five innings, he didn’t get any help from his defense as only two of those runs were earned.
A wild first four innings yielded 13 total runs, unfortunately the Smokies were on the short end of that total and couldn’t muster much after that as they fell 8-6 to Mobile. Junior Lake is raking right now as he went 2-for-5 with a double and a run, he is now hitting .317 on the season. James Adduci, Justin Bour, and Rebel Ridling all had two hits in the loss with Ridling hitting another home run. Nicholas Struck had a rare poor outing as he surrendered six runs, all earned in three innings of work.
Anthony Rizzo just won’t stop, the phenom was 2-for-4 with his 16th home run of the season in an 8-3 loss to Tacoma. Brooks Raley made his Iowa debut and had a rough go of it. Raley gave up five runs, only three earned as he suffered his first loss. Josh Vitters continues to hit as he went 3-for-4 in the loss, he also had a double and an RBI, he is now hitting .267 on the season.
