5/28: Around the Cubs Minor League System
Here is a recap of the Cubs minor league system from 5/28/12, enjoy.
Daytona was off
Jose Rosario was outstanding Monday, unfortunately the Chiefs offense couldn’t provide any offense for him as the Chiefs fell 3-1 to Wisconsin. Rosario was lights out going seven strong innings allowing one run on three hits, while walking no one and striking out seven. 2011 first round pick Javy Baez made his Peoria debut and he didn’t disappoint. Baez was 2-for-4 in his first Peoria game, both hits were singles. Zeke DeVoss was 1-for-4 on the day with a double, and he stole his 12th bag of the season.
The Smokies fell behind early, and by a lot as Huntsville built up a 7-1 lead by the third inning which was too much for Tennessee as they fell 8-4. Dae-Eun Rhee was knocked around quite a bit, he only lasted two and one-third giving up seven runs, all earned, on nine hits, while walking two. Rhee’s record falls to 3-2 on the season while his ERA sky-rockets to 5.50. Rebel Ridling continued his power surge as he went 1-for-4 with his 6th home run of the season. Luis Flores was 1-for-2 at the plate with two walks and two RBI’s.
Brooks Raley rebounded from his last outing to pitch very well to earn his first AAA win and extend the I-Cubs winning streak to four. Raley went five innings only giving up two runs on six hits while walking two and striking out two. The I-Cubs offense didn’t miss a beat with Rizzo sidelined. They pounded out 15 hits and 8 runs en route to the 8-2 victory. Five different Cubs had multi-hit games. Josh Vitters was 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI’s. Brett Jackson was also 2-for-5 at the plate with his 7th triple of the season. Dave Sappelt continues his resurgence at the plate going 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI.
