5/30: Around the Cubs Minor League System
Here is a recap of the Cubs minor league system from 5/30/12, enjoy.
Iowa was rained out, and that’s stupid.
Not much went right for Peoria on Wednesday Night as they fell to Burlington 10-1. Peoria made three errors on the night, which led to six unearned runs. Ben Wells started for Peoria and he wasn’t too bad in three and a-third innings, he gave up one run, unearned on four hits. Wes Darvill, and Yaniel Cabezas each had two hits in the loss with Cabezas knocking in the only Chiefs run.
Trailing 5-3 heading into the ninth the Daytona Cubs rallied for three runs to knock off Brevard County 6-5 in a thriller. Frank Del Valle had a rare off outing as he was only able to last four and a-third while giving up five runs, all earned on four hits. The D-Cubs bullpen really did the job as they went the remaining four and two-thirds without giving up a run to keep the team in it. John Andreoli was 2-for-3 in the lead-off spot with two walks and a run scored. Arismendy Alcantara continued his stellar 2012 campaign as he went 2-for-5 at the plate, he is now hitting .304 on the season. Greg Rohan continues to hit as he went 2-for-5 at the plate with his 10th home run of the season.
The Smokies only managed four runs on five hits en route to a 6-4 loss to Huntsville on Wednesday night. Dallas Beeler has a rough outing as he only made it through four and a-third while giving up five runs, four earned on nine hits, he falls to 1-5 on the season but has an ERA of 4.22 which isn’t terrible. Junior Lake was the one of the few Smokies going at the plate last night as he was 2-for-5 with his 3rd home run of the season. Michael Brenly was 1-for-3 at the plate with his first home run of the season, he drove in two runs and scored two.
