Peoria lost to Burlington in Jorge Soler’s first game with the Chiefs.  The story that everyone wants to know is how did Soler do?  He went 1-for-4 with two RBIs hitting in fifth spot in the order.  Chad Krist had quite a night going 2-for-4, including two doubles and three RBIs.  Yaniel Cabezas also had two hits to go along with a run scored.  Dustin Geiger, Wes Darvill, and Pin-Chieh Chen each had a hit a piece with Chen scoring two runs.  Michael Jensen who has been good most of the year struggled giving up six runs on eight hits in five innings pitched.  Justin Berg struggled giving up four runs, one earned in two innings and Bryce Shafer pitched a scoreless ninth.  This was not quite the way Peoria planned things to go with Soler in the lineup, but tomorrow is a new day.

FULL BOX SCORE

Daytona took a 5-1 lead after three, but saw the lead slip away losing to Dunedin 8-5.  Just like with Jensen, Matt Loosen had pitched well most of the season, but did not have his best stuff on Friday allowing five runs on seven hits in just 4.1 innings.  Eduardo Figueroa pitched well in 2.2 relief innings, but Scott Weismann took the loss allowing the last three runs in his two innings of work.  Micah Gibbs and Rafael Lopez each had two hits, with Gibbs driving in two and Lopez one.  Elieser Bonne also drove in two runs for Daytona.  John Andreoli had a hit and stole a base, bringing his total on the season to an impressive 50.  Javier Baez continues to struggle going 0-for-5 and Christian Villanueva contributed with a hit and scored a run.  Really looking to see Baez get going here, he is obviously going to have to adjust and I think he will sooner than later.

Tied at two going to the ninth Huntsville scored two off of Kevin Rhoderick and held on to beat the Smokies 4-3.  Erick Jokisch got the start and pitched well pitching six strong innings allowing one run on five hits and striking out six.  Trey McNutt gave up one unearned run in two innings of relief.  Matt Szczur is starting to figure things out at the next level going 2-for-4 with a triple, a run scored, and an RBI.  Logan Watkins and Nelson Perez each added two hits of their own with Watkins scoring and driving in a run.  Jae-Hoon Ha and Justin Bour each contributed with a hit and Matt Cerda drove in a run.

Greg Rohan delivered a big two run single in the ninth to tie the game, but Jaye Chapman gave up a run in the bottom half as Iowa dropped a tough one to Las Vegas 4-3.  Chris Rusin got the start pitching 5.2 innings allowing three runs on eight hits in a no decision.  Michael Bowden pitched 1.1 scoreless innings and Chapman took the loss allowing the winning run.  Blake Lalli drove in the other Cubs run ending the night 1-for-4 with a double.  Tony Campana had two hits, including a double and Matt Tolbert had a hit of his own.  Both Campana and Tolbert scored a run as did James Adduci.  It was a nice comeback for Iowa, but still took the loss on Friday night in Vegas.

Daytona got down early in game one, but came storming back winning 5-4 in walk-off fashion.  The walk-off wasn’t quite as exciting as some as it ended on a wild pitch.  Ronald Torreyes was 1-for-3 with two RBIs.  Javier Baez did not have a hit, but drove in his third run in two days and he stole his first base since being promoted.  John Andreoli was 1-for-3 with a run scored and two stolen bases.  Christian Villanueva had a nice night as well going 1-for-1 with two walks, a hit by pitch, a run scored, and a stolen base.  Rubi Silva and Rafael Lopez each had a hit and scored a run.  Robert Whitenack started and struggled early, but really settled down.  He gave up four runs all in the first in four innings.  Ryan Searle and Jeffrey Lorick combined to pitch an excellent four innings striking out five and allowing only one hit.  Lorick picked up the win his second of the season.

FULL BOX SCORE

Not much good came out of game two as Daytona lost 7-1.  Kyle Hendricks started for the Cubs pitching three innings allowing one run on two hits, while striking out three.  Kyler Burke and Hunter Cervenka pitched the final four innings in relief and really struggled combining to give up six runs.  Not much happening for the offense in this one.  Taylor Davis had a double and drove in the lone Cubs run.  Elieser Bonne was 2-for-3 with a double and scored the only Cubs run of the evening.  John Andreoli and Rubi Silva recorded the only other Cubs hits of the contest.  As bad as game two was it was nice to get game one and at least get a split in the double-header on Thursday.

Behind Nicholas Struck Tennessee beat Huntsville 5-3.  Lendy Castillo continued his rehab pitching the first inning of this one allowing no runs on two hits.  Struck came in relief to get his 13th win.  He pitched seven strong innings allowing one run on only two hit and striking out seven.  Frank Batista who has been so good recorded two outs, but need help from Brian Schlitter to close out the game.  Schlitter recorded the last out and notched his third save of the season.  A congratulations goes out to Matt Szczur who hit his first home run since moving to Tennessee.  He ended the night 1-for-3 with two walks, two runs scored, and stole his third base.  Logan Watkins was 1-for-2 with an RBI and his 23rd stolen base.  Justin Bour is now two RBIs away from 100 as he drove in two more bringing his total to 98.  Junior lake and Jae-Hoon both had a double, with Ha also walking four times on the evening.  It was a nice win for the Smokies on Thursday.
