Here is a recap of the Cubs minor league system from 5/25/12, enjoy.
Peoria jumped out to an early 2-0 lead and that was all they needed as they knocked off Clinton 3-1. Starling Peralta was very good for the Chiefs as he worked four innings only allowing one run on five hits while walking one and striking out two. Zeke DeVoss got things started at the top as he was 2-for-4 at the plate with a double and a run scored. Paul Hoilman continues to hit the ball hard as he went 1-for-4 with a triple and an RBI, he is now hitting .298 on the season.
Heartbreaking, that’s the only way you can describe the D-Cubs loss to Clearwater as they fell 2-1, giving up both runs in the top of the ninth. The blown save spoiled Austin Kirk’s outstanding performance on the mound. Kirk, who has been one of the best pitchers in the Cubs organization this year went 8 scoreless innings, only allowing seven hits, walking none, and striking out four, his ERA is now at 2.34 on the season. Micah Gibbs, Rubi Silva, and Dustin Harrington all had three hits at the plate as Daytona finished with one run on nine hits.
The Smokies held Mobile in check all night, but that was almost not good enough as Mobile’s comeback came up short giving the Smokies a 4-3 win. Mobile only had two hits on the night, but managed to plate three runs, timely hitting I guess. Eric Jokisch was really good for the Smokies tossing five innings of one hit baseball, he only allowed two runs, walked one, and struck out three. Kevin Rhoderick came on in relief and was lights out, what else is new, his ERA drops to 0.90 on the season. Luis Flores was 2-for-4 at the plate with a double, a home run and an RBI. Jae-Hoon Ha popped his second home run of the season, and James Adduci finished his day 2-for-2, he’s now hitting .312 on the year.
Anthony Rizzo did not start so might as well skip this game, I’m kidding of course. Rodrigo Lopez started this game and left after one pitch with a sore groin. Jay Jackson jumped into duty and was terrific going five innings allowing one run on three hits, he walked two, and struck out five. Carlos Marmol got some work in on his way back to the Cubs, he worked one inning, giving up a hit and a walk with a strike out. The I-Cubs only managed five hits, but had just enough to pull out a 2-1 win. Luis Valbuena was 1-for-4 at the plates with a game winning solo home run in the ninth inning.
