GAME 2 (7 innings)

FULL BOX SCORE

Omaha jumped on Jay Jackson and the Cubs early and Iowa was never able to rebound.  The lone offensive highlight came from Brett Jackson who hit his sixth home run of the season in the sixth.  Ty Wright was the only other Cub to record a hit in game two.  The same could not be said for Omaha who had eleven hits and ten runs in seven innings.  Jay Jackson gave up the firs six runs and Shane Lindsay had a very rough outing walking four of the five batters he faced.  All four runs in the sixth were charged to him and the Cubs lost 10-1 in game 2.

FULL BOX SCORE

Another day, another Anthony Rizzo show as the Iowa Cubs took out some frustration in an 18-8 beat down of Tacoma.  Rizzo was 3-for-5 with his 15th home run of the season, he also scored five runs.  Every I-Cubs player in the starting lineup had a hit as Iowa put 18 hits and 18 runs on the board, but they also got the help of seven errors, seven.  Those seven errors led to seven unearned runs in an absolutely wild game.  Chris Volstad made his first I-Cubs start and got the win, he struggled a little late but the most important thing is he got back in the win column, hopefully that gives him some confidence.

Daytona used some big time hitting to not only get back in a game they trailed early in but to win it, beating Palm Beach 8-4.  Matt Szczur was 2-for-5 at the plate, and had two stolen bases, which gives him a total of 18 on the season.  Arismendy Alcantara, Greg Rohan, and Richard Jones all had three hits to pace the D-Cubs attack with Jones driving in three runs.  Frank Del Valle was the beneficiary of the offensive outburst has he worked six solid innings for his third win of the season.

5/17: Around the Cubs Minor League System

Here is the recap of the Cubs minor league system from 5/17/12, enjoy.

FULL BOX SCORE

 One day after seeing their five game winning streak end the Peoria Chiefs got right back into the win column beating Clinton 4-3.  Patrick Francescon was tremendous once again for Peoria going six innings and only allowing one unearned run on two hits.  Francescon improves to 5-1 on the season while lowering his ERA to a sparkling 1.86.  Pin-Chieh Chen went 2-for-5 at the plate, while Marco Hernandez went 2-for-3 with a triple, a walk, and two runs scored.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

Palm Beach jumped on Daytona early and often en route to an 8-2 victory.  Zach Cates struggled yet again as he surrendered four runs, three earned in 2 and 2/3rds innings.  Cates falls to 0-6 on the season with his ERA sitting at a robust 10.50.  Cates didn’t really get much help from his offense either as the D-Cubs only put up two runs on four hits.  Greg Rohan was 2-for-3 at the plate with a walk, a triple and a run scored.  Nelson Perez added his 6th home run of the season.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

 Brooks Raley was really good again for the Smokies as he went five strong innings to pick up his second win of the season in a 3-2 victory over Mississippi.  The Smokies didn’t have a lot of offense but three runs on five hits was just enough.  James Adduci was 2-for-4 at the plate with two runs scored as he raised his average to .306 on the season.  Logan Watkins provided the big hit for the Smokies, a two-run single in the 5th inning to put Tennessee up for good.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

It was a prospect showcase tonight in Iowa as the I-Cubs beat Salt Lake 7-5.  Anthony Rizzo, Brett Jackson, and Josh Vitters all went deep in the victory.  I should probably stop writing about Rizzo hitting home runs every night, it should just be assumed.  Dave Sappelt was 2-for-4 at the plate with a double and two runs scored.  Back to Jackson, he finished the night a double short of the cycle going 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored.  Travis Wood was really good, and might have earned a call up to the Cubs rotation after his effort and Volstad’s horrid start.  Wood went seven strong innings only allowing two runs on five hits while walking just one.

FULL BOX SCORE

 All of the action took place early and often in this one as all 11 runs were scored in the first four innings, unfortunately Daytona came out on the short end of this one 6-5.  Rubi Silva, Greg Rohan and Nelson Perez did most of the damage for the D-Cubs.  They finished a combined 4-for-11 with three doubles, four RBI’s and four runs scored.  Zach Cates was beat up a bit in his three innings of work as he gave up five runs, four earned as he took a no decision.

 A wild one in Tennessee saw the Smokies build a 5-1 lead early in the game only to fall 8-7 to Montgomery.  The Smokies pounded out 12 hits, with all but one starter joining the party.  Logan Watkins, Michael Brenly, Matthew Cerda, and Nate Samson all had two hits in the losing effort.  Matthew Cerda and Justin Bour contributed with home runs as well.  Dallas Beeler scattered 11 hits through 5 and 1/3rds of an inning giving up six runs but only three were earned as he walked away with a no decision.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

 Now that’s the definition of a good old fashion pitchers duel right there.  In a game that featured only one run, and nine hits, the Iowa Cubs walked off on a wild pitch.  Luis Valbuena had 3 of the I-Cubs’ six hits with Anthony Rizzo adding two more.  Rizzo scored the game winning run in the bottom of the ninth on said wild pitch.  The I-Cubs staff was stellar, Rodrigo Lopez, Frankie De La Cruz, and Blake Parker held New Orleans to three hits on the night with Parker getting the victory.
