South Bend 4-10 Final

Full Box Score

The South Bend Cubs moved to 2-0 on the young season tonight as 2014 15th round draft pick Jeremy Null was brilliant.  Null got the start and worked five scoreless innings, giving up just two hits while striking out seven, not a single walk.  That was more than enough for the SB Cubs offense as they pounded out ten hits en route to a 7-4 victory over Bowling Green.

Full Box Score

 A weird one in Mississippi as the Smokies jumped out to a 5-0 lead only to see it vanish in an 8-7 loss.  The Smokies attempted to mount a comeback in the 8th, but could only close the gap to one run.  A tough night for the Smokies pitchers as the Braves worked six walks, and registered nine hits.

Iowa Cubs 4-10 Final

 Full Box Score

It hasn’t been the start that the Iowa Cubs, and Cubs fans were expecting.  For the second straight night the Memphis Redbirds took it to Iowa, it was especially bad tonight as Iowa trailed 7-0 after two.  Some of the big league club’s struggles are rubbing off on Iowa as they can’t seem to find any offense yet.

  • Addison Russell is one guy that is swinging it well, he went 1-for-4 with a double, he’s hitting .375 so far this season.

Iowa 4-17-14

Full Box Score

Iowa jumped out to a 3-0 lead early on in this one before having to fight back with two in the seventh to beat New Orleans 5-4.  Definitely not how you draw up a typical win as the Iowa Cubs defense made six (SIX!) errors in this one, I guess a win is a win, time to forget that defensive “effort” .. yikes.

On the Mound:

  • Neil Ramirez had a solid outing today, he worked a scoreless inning, while walking one, and striking out three.
  • Brian Schlitter worked a bumpy ninth to pick up his second save of the season.  Schlitter gave up one run on one hit, while walking one to close it out.

Smokies 4-17-14 Game One

Full Box Score

Rough go of it for the Smokies in game one, as they could only manage one hit as they were shut out by the Jackson Generals, 4-0.  Command, or lack thereof, doomed the Smokies staff, but not much you can do when you get no runs of support.

At the Plate:

  • Dustin Geiger had the lone hit for the Smokies, as he went 1-for-2 to raise his average to .289 on the season.  The Smokies walked just twice in this one, while striking out eleven times.

On the Mound:

  • Austin Kirk kept the Smokies in things as he worked two innings, giving up one run on one hit, while striking out one.
  • Tony Zych mopped things up in this one, and also saw the plate dancing around on him as he worked one scoreless inning, giving up two hits, while walking two, and striking out one.

The Smokies were able to exact some revenge in game two as they fought back from an early 2-0 deficit to beat the Generals 3-2.  The Smokies got a lot of help from the Generals defense as they committed two errors, and allowed two unearned runs to score, at that was the difference.
