6/9: Around the Cubs Minor League System

Another busy day around the Cubs minor league system as Iowa played their second straight double-header.  Regardless of how busy they might be, a couple of teams are red-hot, let’s see if they continue their torrid pace, here is the recap for June 9th…

FULL BOX SCORE

 Five in a row for the red-hot Peoria Chiefs as they knocked off the Kane County Cougars 4-1 in Peoria.  Kyler Burke was outstanding as he tossed seven almost un-hittable innings giving up no runs on two hits while striking out nine, doesn’t get much better than that.  Burke got just enough offense as the Chiefs put up a four spot in the first inning, it was enough but it was all they would get.  Anthony Giansanti back from a scary injury went 3-for-5 at the plate, he’s now hitting .333 on the season.  Paul Bunyan, I mean Paul Hoilman and Wes Darvill each had two hits in the victory, each guy had a double as well.    Zeke DeVoss, somewhat overshadowed but a great prospect in his own right, was 1-for-2 in the lead off spot with three walks, and a stolen base, doing his job right.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

Daytona had a rough go of it tonight as they were blanked by Tampa 7-0.  Not much went right at all as the D-Cubs only managed three hits while making two errors.  Frank Del Valle started for Daytona and didn’t pitch too poorly but he didn’t get any help from his defense.  Del Valle lasted five innings giving up three runs, two earned on four hits while walking two and striking out four.  The loss drops Del Valle to 4-2 on the season while his ERA sits at 4.28.  As I mentioned not much going on for the D-Cubs at the plate, only Arismendy Alcantara, Ronald Torreyes, and Rubi Silva had hits, all singles.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

 The Smokies are on fire as they beat Mississippi tonight 6-4 for their sixth straight victory.  Dallas Beeler started for the Smokies are had a decent outing but did not figure in the decision as he gave up three runs on five hits in five innings of work.  Frank Batista worked the final two innings of the game to earn his first win of the season as he gave up one run on three hits, his ERA is now 1.96 on the season.  Nate Samson had a big day at the plate going 3-for-4 with two runs scored.  Rebel Ridling gave the Smokies the lead in the 3rd inning with his seventh home run of the season, a two run shot on his way to a 1-for-4 day.

****

FULL BOX SCORE GAME 1

Pitching stole the show in game one as the I-Cubs scratched out a 1-o win over Nashville.  Brooks Raley was outstanding as he went the distance (7 innings in a DH) to earn his second victory of the season for Iowa.  Raley held Nashville scoreless while giving up six hits, walking no one, and striking out six.  Matt Tolbert was 2-for-3 at the plate with the big blow, a solo shot in the first inning providing the only run of the game.  Dave Sappelt also had a good game at the plate as he went 2-for-2 and had a big outfield assist gunning down a runner at second.

FULL BOX SCORE GAME 2

Much of the same in game two as offense was at a premium, this time Nashville came out on top 3-2 scoring the game winning run in the top of the 6th inning after the I-Cubs rallied from two down to tie it in the 5th.  Esmailin Caridad got the start for the I-Cubs, tends to happen when you play four games in two days.  Caridad was good, and provided the innings the Cubs needed, he last four innings giving up two runs on two hits while walking three and striking out three.  The I-Cubs couldn’t get much going offensively, Ty Wright was 2-for-3 at the plate with a double.  Josh Vitters drove in one of the I-Cubs runs and was 1-for-2 at the plate with a walk, he’s now hitting .271 on the season.

FULL BOXSCORE 

 Iowa scored two runs in the eighth to get the win 5-4 on Thursday night.  After Nashville opened the scoring, Iowa came right back in the bottom of the second to tie the game on an RBI single by Dave Sappelt.  The Cubs would score two more in the third on an Anthony Rizzo groundout followed by an RBI double by Josh Vitters.  Nashville would get the next three runs off of Chris Volstad who pitched seven innings giving up four runs, three of which were earned.  Going into the bottom of the eighth Iowa trailed 4-3 until Ty Wright came up and connected on a two-run homer, his fourth of the year to give the Cubs the lead.  Scott Maine threw a scoreless ninth recording his fourth save of the season.  Jeff Beliveau got the win.

Another good night for the Cubs system, this time two come from behind wins.

6/2: Around the Cubs Minor League System

FULL BOX SCORE

 Javier Baez hit his first home run of his proessional career on Saturday night helping the Chiefs destroy Kane County 15-3.  Baez ended the game going 3-for-5 with three RBI’s and two runs scored.  Yasiel Balaguert and Taiwan Easterling also delivered three RBIS’s and Anthony Giansanti had two.  Also contributing offensively was Wes Darvill who went 4-for-6 with an RBI and two runs scored.  One of the more unusual stats came from Pin-Chieh Chen who went 1-for-1 with five walks and four runs scored.As good as the bats were on Saturday, starting pitcher Jose Rosario was just as good.  He pitched seven scoreless innings giving up three hits and striking out ten.  He improved his record to 4-5.  The game got interesting late when up 13-0 Baez swung at a 3-0 pitch.  Kane County’s manager visited the mound and Baez got hit in the ribs on the next pitch.  Things stayed calm and Baez will learn from the experience.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

After scoring 16 on Friday night, Daytona answered by scoring 10 more Saturday beating Fort Myers 10-5.  Everyone in the lineup had at least one hit as Daytona pounded out 16 hits.  John Andreoli scored three time and he Rubi Silva both had three hits for the Cubs.  Arismendy Alcantara and Nelson Perez added two hits a piece with each driving in three runs.  The Cubs used four pitchers to take care of the win.  Ryan Searle eventually got his second win of the year as he went three strong innings in relief only giving up two hits and striking out three.  The Cubs bats look stay hot as we move into Sunday.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

Montgomery outlasts Tennessee winning 4-3 in 10 innings.  The Smokies got the scoring started in the second inning and scored another in the fifth to take a 3-0 lead.  Montgomery would put up a three spot starter Dae-Eun Rhee in the sixth and the score would stay tied until the bottom of the tenth when the Biscuits walked off with a win.  Jae-Hoon Ha had three hits and a run scored on the day.  RBI’s came from Justin Bour, Nate Samson, and Elliot SotoJunior Lake had rough day as he went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts.  It is always tough to lose games when you are up by three or more runs late in the game, we will see how Tennessee responds.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

Iowa scored enough to win most nights, but giving up seven runs in the seventh proved to be too much.  It looked good for Iowa early as they scored the first five runs of the game.  Oklahoma City would get right back in the game when they scored four in the third.  Iowa would score the next three runs of the game, however the bullpen could not hold the lead giving up seven in the seventh.  Offensively there were a lot of good things as Brett Jackson stayed red hot going 3-for-5 with two doubles and a triple.  Anthony Rizzo was back on Saturday, he went 2-for-4 with a double.  Former first rounder Josh Vitters continues to swing a good bat as he had two hits including his ninth home run of the year.  Luis Valbuena, Ty Wright, and Blake Lalli all had multi-hit games.  Unfortunately for Cubs this game was pitched by are all designated team, as Rodrigo Lopez, Ryan Rowland-Smith, and Mike MacDougal were are all terrible.  Hopefully Iowa can respond tomorrow with a victory.

Rain outs are dumb.

FULL BOX SCORE 

The Smokies faced the Generals tonight and I will give you one guess as to what happened.  You’re right, the Smokies were shut down completely, except for a run in the ninth inning on their way to a 2-1 loss.  Brooks Raley did everything he could to get a win for the Smokies, but he ended up getting the loss.  Raley went 7 strong innings, only allowing two runs on five hits while striking out seven.  He falls to 1-2 and improves his ERA to 3.50 on the season.  Nate Samson had another big night going 3-for-4, unfortunately he couldn’t get any at bats with guys on base.

FULL BOX SCORE

5/10: Around the Cubs Minor League System

Here is your nightly recap for the Cubs minor league system, enjoy.

FULL BOX SCORE

After falling behind 4-0 early, Peoria staged a comeback that ended up falling just short in a 6-5 loss to Beloit.  Rafael Lopez, and Marco Hernandez each had two hits in the losing effort for Peoria.  Gerardo Concepcion had probably his best start as a professional on Thursday.  Concepcion still struggled in the first inning, but settled down making it through four innings to earn a no decision.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

An early hole was too much for Daytona to climb out of as they fell to the Stone Crabs 8-3.  The D-Cubs pounded out 9 hits, but were only able to tally runs in the 2nd and 8th innings respectively.  Matt Szczur was 1-for-3 at the plate as he continues his surge with his average now sitting at .250.  Frank Del Valle started for the D-Cubs and took the loss giving up five runs in five innings, he’s now 2-1 on the season.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

Dae-Eun Rhee was outstanding Thursday Night for the Smokies, going 7 and 2/3rd’s of an inning while only giving up one earned, which was unearned.  Rhee only allowed four hits, and walked only one guy en route to his 3rd win of the season.  Nate Samson had the big hit for the Smokies with a two run double in the second inning which was all the Smokies needed in a 4-1 win over Birmingham.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

One of the few nights that Anthony Rizzo didn’t run the I-Cubs offense, but that was alright as the rest of the team really picked up the slack in a 10-1 win against Fresno.  Luis Valbuena, Josh Vitters, and Dave Sappelt all had big days at the plate.  Vitters was 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI’s as he tries to get back on track after slumping a bit.  Lost in an offensive firestorm was the solid start of Randy Wells.  Wells was solid, going six innings and allowing only one run for his second win of the season.

The Peoria Chiefs made thing interesting by tying the game in the top of the 9th, unfortunately they lost the game in the bottom half.  Marco Hernandez, and Taiwan Easterling each had two hits in the losing effort.  Kyler Burke was very good for Peoria on the mound going 6 and 1/3rds of an inning, only allowing three runs on five hits, he settled for a no decision.

***

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.

FULL BOX SCORE

 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.
