Certain games you just forget and move on, I think losing 17-1 would be one of those games. Nothing went right for the Cubs as the Mets turned a 1-1 game into a laugher in just a matter of three innings. Entering the fourth inning the game was tied at one, then the Mets went on an offensive binge, scoring three in the 4th, six in the 5th, and six in the 6th, and just like that it was 16-1, yikes. Jeff Samardzija was god awful, and Casey Coleman was probably worse. Samardzija gave up nine runs on six hits in 4.1 innings while walking four and striking out one. Talk of a possible all-star appearance has officially been thrown out the window as Samardzija falls to 5-7 on the year with a 5.05 ERA. Coleman came in to put out the fire, instead he doused it with gasoline. He lasted only 1.2 innings, giving up seven runs on six hits while walking two and striking out one.
The Cubs were not much better at the plate as they only managed nine hits and one run against Jonathan Niese and the Mets pen. Anthony Rizzo was 1-for-4 with a double, nice to see him swing the bat well against a lefty as that was his big stumbling block last year. Darwin Barney also had a solid day at the plate going 2-for-4 with a run scored. These games happen, the good news is that it only counts as one loss. Still a good series for the Cubs, taking two out of three from a solid team is definitely a positive. Full box score and highlights after the jump.
Here is your nightly recap for the Cubs minor league system, enjoy.
Paul Hoilman extended his hitting streak to 20 games in grand fashion by launching a grand slam en route to a 3-for-4 day with five RBI’s. Patrick Francescon was once again brilliant on the mound for Peoria going six strong innings to get the victory, he improved to 3-1 with a 2.48 ERA on the season. Jeffery Lorick shut the door for the Chiefs, recording his 4th save of the year.
Eric Jokisch was nearly untouchable Monday night against Jupiter. Jokisch went seven stellar innings, only allowing four hits while striking out 11 on his way to his second win of the season. Matt Szczur continued his torrid pace going 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Nelson Perez also had a solid night at the plate going 2-for-2 with a triple and an RBI.
Nicholas Struck was solid on the mound for the Smokies as they took care of Brimingham Monday night 4-2. Struck improved to 4-2 on the season by going six strong innings, while only giving up two runs. The Smokies made the most of their hits as they only had six on the night to go with their four runs scored. Junior Lake was 1-for-4 in his second game with the Smokies. Rebel Ridling was 1-for-4 on the evening with a solo home run, his first of the season.
Another barn burner in Iowa last night as the I-Cubs squeaked out another 1-0 victory over New Orleans. Casey Coleman was outstanding going seven innings and only allowing two hits while striking out nine on his way to a no decision. Iowa didn’t fare too much better at the plate as they were only able to manage two hits on the day. Brett Jackson drew a lead-off walk in bottom of the 8th and would eventually come around and score the game winning run in a 1-0 I-Cubs victory.

The I-Cubs have hit a rough stretch recently, and now sit two games under .500. The bats have not been the problem as the I-Cubs continue to put up numbers, the pitching could be a lot better. Hopefully it is this week, full stats and standings after the jump.
Due to some technical difficulties I was not able to post each game separately last night like I usually do. Instead here is a recap of last nights events.
It was the Welington Castillo show Wednesday night in Iowa, as he went 3-for-3 with a double, home run, RBI, and three runs scored. Josh Vitters also remained scorching hot going 2-for-3 with 2 RBI’s, he is now hitting .450 on the young season. Casey Coleman turned in a solid effort earning the win going five innings, giving up one run on three hits, with three walks and three strikeouts. Anthony Rizzo and Brett Jackson were quiet for the second straight day, I expect 7 HR’s next game, each.
Casey Coleman got knocked around early in Iowa’s loss Friday night. Coleman was around the plate all night, just probably around it a little too much. He gave up four runs on five hits over five innings, he didn’t walk anyone and struck out five. The Iowa bullpen came in and did an adequate job keeping Round Rock scoreless over the next four innings. Ryan Rowland-Smith, and Jeff Beliveau each tossed a scoreless inning while Esmailin Caridad turned in two scoreless innings. Rizzo and Jackson were the stars again at the plate, Jackson chipped in with a triple, and Rizzo had two more hits in the 4-3 loss.
The Cubs jumped out to a 3-0 lead and Casey Coleman made that stand while he was in the game for three strong innings. However, Andy Sonnanstine had another rough outing which let the Sox right back in the game, and gave them a brief 5-3 lead. The Cubs were able to fight back and tie it late, but left runners on the corners in the 8th inning. Jordan Danks belted a 2-run homer in the 10th inning to give the White Sox a two run lead, and eventually the victory.
