FULL BOX SCORE

 Randy Wells was pitching in a new location but had much of the same results as he did in the big leagues on Saturday Night.  Wells walked two guys over 5 and 1/3rds of an inning, while allowing three runs on seven hits to take the loss.  The I-Cubs couldn’t get much going at the plate as they only managed three runs on six hits in the 7-3 defeat.  Dave Sappelt was 1-for-4 with a run scored, while Anthony Rizzo went 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI.
