In the 4-2 Peoria loss Zeke DeVoss had two hits and a run scored. Paul Hoilman had a nice night at the plate as well as he went 2-for-3 with an RBI.

Sheldon McDonald pitched beautifully throwing 2.2 perfect innings in relief, he also struck out two. Austin Reed gave up a run in relief, but also struck out three batters in his two innings of work.
Everything looked great for Daytona until they gave up seven runs in the bottom of the eighth as they took the Clearwater won the game 7-2. Robert Whitenack was brilliant in five innings as he gave up no runs on only three hits while striking out three. Brian Schlitter continued to impress as he pitched two perfect innings in relief striking out one batter. As good as Whitenack and Schlitter were A.J. Morris and Jeffrey Lorick were not very good at all. Morris was tagged with the loss as he gave up four runs while not recording an out and Lorick gave up three more in an inning of work. The offense had nine hits including two from catcher Chad Noble who had a double and a run scored. Everyone else in the Cubs starting lineup had one hit except John Andreoli. Greg Rohan drove in his 61st run of the year and Matt Szczur scored a run and stole his 20th base of the season.
Tennessee scored six in the third, but had to hold on as they won 7-6 on Saturday. Jeffry Antigua got the start, but did not factor in the decision as he only was able to pitch three innings. Casey Weathers got the win pitching two good innings in relief giving up one hit and wallking one while striking out four. Frank Batista recorded one out to pick up his 11th save of the season. Logan Watkins had a nice night out of the leadoff spot going 2-for-4 with a double and triple. He also walked once and scored two runs.

Nelson Perez hit his first home run in Double-A and Michael Burgess also hit a homer, each driving in two runs.

That was a long three days for everyone involved, I will try to break it down to the best of my ability for you. It’s obvious that the Cubs needed to fill their system with pitching depth and it appears that they did so.
The Cubs had 42 picks in this years draft, 40 round plus two compensation (or sandwhich) picks. In years past the draft has been 50 rounds, under the new CBA the rounds were reduced to 40. The breakdown of the 42 picks is as follows, 22 pitchers (18 RHP, 4 LHP), seven infielders, eight outfielders, and five catchers. Of those players 20 were college players, seven were junior college players, and the Cubs drafted 15 high school players.
Here’s the full list…

The MLB Draft gets going again in about five minutes, round 2 through round 15 will be completed today, we will update this post with the Cubs picks, follow along and use the comments section to comment or follow on twitter!
Cubs 2nd Round Pick (67th Overall) –
Underwood is everything you’d want from a high school pitcher: athletic with arm strength, a chance to have three at least Major League-average pitches and outstanding mound presence.The Georgia product will sit in the low 90s with his fastball typically, but he can reach back for 95-96 mph occasionally. His secondary offerings aren’t as good as the fastball, but both his curve and changeup have a chance. When he throws them right, his curve can have a very good 12-to-6 late break and his changeup can be very deceptive.He doesn’t throw either consistently right now and he does have some issues with command at times. His poise, knowledge of the game and athleticsm say he’ll continue to evolve as a pitcher, meaning he could start moving up charts this spring. —Round 3 through Round 15 after the jump.
