May 7 – 9; vs. Braves – Series Preview

Atlanta Braves Logo - Braves in scarlet with navy outline above a scarlet tomahawk

The Cubs look to keep things rolling as they welcome the Atlanta Braves to Wrigley Field for a three game set.  This will be the second series in a row where the Cubs will be facing one of the best teams in baseball.  The Cubs first test was over the weekend against the Dodgers, and they passed with flying colors taking 2 out of 3.  If the Cubs are going to do the same thing in this series they are going to need an outstanding pitching effort.  They have been getting that lately, but they will be really tested in this series against the top run scoring team in the National League. 

The Braves are led by the usual suspects in Chipper Jones, and Brian McCann, but are also getting solid production from Freddie Freeman and Jason Heyward.  The Cubs should be able to take advantage of a Braves pitching staff that has been knocked around a bit this season.  The Braves come into the series with a 4.41 ERA which ranks 14th in the National League.  The Cubs haven’t lost a series since the April 20-22 series to the Reds, let’s keep that going, go Cubs!

Full preview/breakdown after the jump.

Blake DeWitt Designated For Assignment

Blake DeWitt was once again designated for assignment.  The Cubs will now have ten days to release, waive, or trade DeWitt.  As you recall the Cubs did the same thing with DeWitt a couple months ago, he cleared waivers then and accepted a minor league assignment, but it is unknown if he will do the same should he clear waivers this time through.  Taking his place today is going to be Travis Wood who will get his first major league start with the Cubs.  However, what will happen after today is anyones guess as I don’t think the Cubs will carry 13 pitchers.  My thinking is it will be Adrian Cardenas who is off to a good start in Iowa, but maybe the organization has something else planned.  We will let you know as soon as we find out.

5/1: Around the Cubs Minor League System

Here is your nightly recap for the Cubs minor league system, enjoy.

Peoria was off

FULL BOX SCORE

 A crushing defeat for Daytona as they lost the lead in the top of the 9th inning, and lost the game in the top of the 10th.  The D-Cubs couldn’t generate much offense, but they held the lead into the 9th behind a strong start from Austin Kirk.  Kirk was awesome, going 8 innings, and only giving up two runs, his ERA now sits at 1.69.  He ended the night with a tough luck no decision.  Rubi Silva had the big hit of the night for the D-Cubs, which was a two run triple in the 3rd inning.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

Brooks Raley pitched well enough to earn a victory Tuesday Night, and it looked like he was until the late innings.  Montgomery battled back and erased a 4-1 deficit by scoring 5 runs combined in the 7th and 8th en route to a 6-5 victory.  Logan Watkins, and Michael Burgess each went deep for the Smokies in the losing effort.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

Everybody hits, and everybody drives runs in, it was an offensive explosion in Memphis as the I-Cubs pounded out 20 hits and 13 runs en route to a 13-4 victory.  Every Cubs starter, including Jay Jackson had a hit, and every Cubs starter except Josh Vitters had an RBI, that’s hard to do.  Brett Jackson was 4-for-5, Dave Sappelt was 3-for-6, Adrian Cardenas was 3-for-6, the list goes on, check out the full box score, it’s a treat.

Thanks for reading everyone, go Cubs!

I-Cubs Drop a Close One

In a game that went back and forth the Isotopes came out on top late, scoring the game winning run in the top of the ninth off of Jeff Beliveau.  It was a very rare quiet night for both Brett Jackson and Anthony Rizzo as both went hitless.  Josh Vitters had two hits, as did Adrian Cardenas who also added a two run homer.  Randy Wells went six innings, but struggled giving up four runs on six hits, while striking out five and not walking anyone.
