The Chiefs had the bats going as they pounded out 13 hits, every Chiefs player had a hit in the win. Oliver Zapata was 3-for-4 with a double, a run, and two RBI’s. he’s now hitting .284 on the season.
Daytona was in a hitting mood as they knocked out 11 hits, unfortunately they couldn’t string anything together and fell to St. Lucie 5-2. Greg Rohan continued his solid season as he went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run and an RBI. Ryan Searle struggled on the mound for the D-Cubs as he dropped his first game of the season. Searle only last 3 and 2/3rds while giving up three runs on six hits in the loss.
Junior Lake won’t stop hitting, and that’s a good thing, the young star in the making was 2-for-4 in the loss, his average is now at .328 on the season. Dallas Beeler struggled with his command in this one, however Beeler still battled through six innings earning a quality start. Unfortunately the Smokies offense couldn’t plate another run and Beeler was hung with the loss as he dropped to 1-4 on the season.
Sorry boys and girls, Anthony Rizzo didn’t hit a home run today, he did rope a double off the top of the wall so he came close at least. The I-Cubs fell behind early and often and couldn’t dig out of that hole as they fell to Tacoma 7-2. Brett Jackson and Ty Wright each had two hits, but the I-Cubs could only muster a total of 8 knocks in the loss.
