7/13: Around the Cubs Minor League System

Recapping July 13th, 2012 in the Cubs minor league system, enjoy.

FULL BOX SCORE

The AZL Cubs have a way of punishing their opponents, and more often than not Daniel Vogelbach is leading that charge, tonight was more of the same as the Cubs beat the Rangers 7-3.  Vogelbach was a man possessed tonight as he went 3-for-4 with his 6th home run of the season, two doubles, an RBI, a walk, and two runs scored.  Vogelbach now has 10 doubles on the season, the man doesn’t now how to hit singles, he’s a slugging machine right now.  Ben Carhart and Jacob Rogers made sure Vogelbach had plenty of help as each guy had two hits, Carhart is now hitting .340 while Rogers is now hitting .429 on the season.  Timothy Saunders had a shocking 0-for-4 dropping his average all the way down to .475 on the season, please catch that sarcasm, I’m laying it on pretty thick.  Anthony Prieto started for the Cubs and only went one inning, he didn’t give up any runs but gave up one hit and issued three walks before departing.  Hunter Ackerman came on in relief and earned the win after going three innings giving up one run on two hits, while walking two and striking out two.  Nathan Dorris came on in the ninth to earn his first save of the season.

FULL BOX SCORE

A late inning collapse can be blamed for Boise’s loss as they seemingly had this one wrapped up leading 4-2 heading to the 8th.  Vancouver scored four in the 8th and one more time for good measure in the 9th to take beat Boise 7-4.  Tayler Scott started for Boise and was his typical solid self going four strong innings allowing two runs, one earned, on five hits while walking two and striking out one.  Hayden Simpson chipped in 3.2 innings of relief but was on the mound for Vancouver’s comeback.  The defense behind Simpson didn’t help as he allowed three runs on six hits but only one was earned.  Gioskar Amaya continued his solid season at the plate going 2-for-5 with his 3rd home run of the season, he his now hitting .298 on the campaign.  Dong-Yub Kim also had a nice night going 2-for-4 with a run scored and Rock Shoulders continued showing patience at the plate as he was 0-for-1 with three walks.

FULL BOX SCORE

For all the press the Chiefs offense gets, and well deserved, the pitching has shown flashes of brilliance as well, tonight Joseph Zeller dazzled.  Zeller was perfect in his six innings of work, that’s right, no hits or walks in six innings while striking out four en route to his first win of the season.  The Chiefs couldn’t finish off the perfect game eventually allowing one run on two hits in an 8-1 victory over Dayton.  Chadd Krist is becoming a story, the 2012 draft pick has already been promoted to Peoria and he is swinging the bat well.  Krist was 2-for-4 again tonight with his first home run as a Chief, he also had a double, two RBI’s and two runs scored.  Paul Hoilman and Wes Darvill each chipped in with two RBI’s a piece.

FULL BOX SCORE

Losses can’t get much harder to take than this one.  The Daytona Cubs were well on their way to a victory behind P.J. Francescon leading 7-0 heading to the 6th inning, then the wheels fell off.  Palm Beach blitzed the D-Cubs for seven runs in the sixth inning, and three in the seventh to take a 10-7 lead, eventually winning 11-8.  Francescon was brilliant for the D-Cubs, he went five innings allowing no runs on two hits, while striking out three, but had to settle for a no decision.  Matthew Spencer, Ryan Searle, Scott Weismann, and Frank Del Valle were really bad, no other way to put it as they tossed a combined four innings giving up 11 runs, all earned, on 11 hits while walking three and striking out three.  Rubi Silva had a solid day at the plate going 3-for-6 with a triple, his ninth, yes ninth of the season, and an RBI.  Ronald Torreyes and Rebel Ridling each had two hits in the loss, as six different D-Cubs had RBI’s.

FULL BOX SCORE

The Smokies never really allowed Birmingham into this one as they jumped all over the Barons with four in the first, then tacked on three in the fifth and sixth to take a 10-0 lead.  The Barons tried to save face by pushing across three runs in the final two innings but it didn’t help as the Smokies rolled to a 12-3 victory.  Erik Jokisch was nearly perfect going five innings allowing no runs on one hit while walking four and striking out six.  Jokisch struggled with his command, see the six walks, but was untouchable otherwise in earning his 5th win of the season against one loss.  Trey McNutt made his debut as a reliever, after officially being moved to the pen yesterday.  He was solid going two innings in relief giving up no run on one hit and striking out two.  Justin Bour had a stellar game at the plate going 2-for-6 with a double, four RBI’s and a run scored.  Logan Watkins wasn’t going to let Bour have all the fun as he went 3-for-4 with two RBI’s, two walks, and three runs scored.  Junior Lake, Jae-Hoon Ha, and Michael Burgess all had two hits in the blow out win.  The Smokies managed to pound out 14 hits and 12 runs and did it all without a home run.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

A late rally from Iowa fell just short as they dropped a close one to Omaha 4-3, the I-Cubs scratched across two runs in the ninth unfortunately it was too little too late.  Brooks Raley was really good for the I-Cubs going five innings and allowing two runs on six hits while walking one and striking out four.  Unfortunately that wasn’t good enough to avoid a loss as Raley fell to 4-5 on the season with a 3.57 ERA.  Adrian Cardenas continued his recent stretch of outstanding play, proving that he is a play every day kind of guy, he won’t reach that max potential by coming off the bench.  Cardenas was 2-for-3 with a double, triple, a walk, and a run scored in the loss.  Welington Castillo was 3-for-4 with a run scored, but that was the extent of the I-Cubs offense as they were a horrendous 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position and left eight guys on base.
