 Nothing is more exciting than a walk-off win, and that is exactly what Ronald Torreyes did connecting on his first home run of the season and giving Daytona a 7-6 victory.  Including Torreyes, Chad Noble, Rubi Silva, Greg Rohan, and Arismendy Alcantara all had two hits on the day.  Brevard County got the scoring started in the first scoring three runs.  Daytona would put up six spot in the third highlighted by a Nelson Perez grandslam.  For Perez it was his eight home run and he now has 34 RBI’s.  Austin Kirk was not at his best on Thursday, but after allowing two more runs in the fifth left in line for the win, however Brevard County tied the game in the eighth.  Jeffrey Lorick pitched a scoreless ninth and when Torreyes connected on his shot in the bottom half he received his first win of the season.

FULL BOX SCORE

In Game 1 of the split double-header on Thursday Iowas won 4-1.  Iowas got the scoring in the third when Brett Jackson delivered a two out RBI single to drive in Juan Apodaca who had two hits on the day.  After Omaha tied it in the third Brett Jackson would drive in his second of the night with a sacrifice fly to drive in Dave Sappelt.  The Cubs would add two in the seventh with two outs when Luis Valbuena and Ty Wright both walked to drive in runs three and four.  Frankie De La Cruz got the start and 4.1 allowing one run on four hits while striking out four.  Ryan Rowland-Smith got the win going 1.1 innings and Rafael Dolis got the save.  Good news for Cub fans he struck out two and did not walk anybody.

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

The Smokies got some pretty good pitching, but the offense never got going as Tennessee lost 3-0.  Trey McNutt’s record dropped to 2-4 when he took the tough luck loss on Saturday.  McNutt only went four innings giving up two earned runs on five hits.  Ty’Relle Harris pitched two scoreless innings while striking out two and walking one.  Mobile added a run in the eighth of of Marcus Hatley who also pitched two innings.  There really was not much excitement from the offense, but Michael Burgess had two hits.

5/22: Around the Cubs Minor League System

Here is a recap of the Cubs minor league system from 5/22/12, enjoy.

Peoria was off

FULL BOX SCORE

Matt Szczur is playing his way towards a promotion right now.  The D-Cubs outfielder is in a torrid stretch, he went 2-for-4 again last night with a double, a walk, and an RBI, oh, and his 19th stolen base of the season.  Nelson Perez, and Greg Rohan each chipped in with a home run in the thrilling 6-5 victory over St. Lucie.  PJ Francescon made his Daytona debut and he picked up where he left off in Peoria.  Francescon went six innings, allowed two runs, one earned on three hits, unfortunately he settled for a no decision.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

Junior Lake continues to hit as he went 3-for-5 in a 4-3 loss to Mobile last night.  Lake belted his 2nd home run of the season, a solo shot to lead off the game, he has his average up to .310 on the year.  Jeffery Antigua got the start for the Smokies and took his first loss of the season.  Antigua went four innings, giving up two runs on six hits, not too bad at all, unfortunately the Smokies offense couldn’t get it going early for him.

 ***

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.

Sappelt’s RBI double

5/20: Around the Cubs Minor League System

Here is the recap of the Cubs minor league system from 5/20/12, enjoy.

FULL BOX SCORE

The Chiefs needed extra innings to beat Cedar Rapids 9-6 on Sunday after they blew leads of 4-0 and 6-4 in the ninth.  Gerardo Concepcion had his second decent outing in a row and was in line for his second win before Cedar Rapids tied it in the ninth.  Concepcion went five innings while allowing four runs on six hits.  The Chiefs offense was in high gear as they pounded out 15 hits and 9 runs in the win.  Taylor Davis was 3-for-3 with a double, a walk, two runs scored and two RBI’s.  Rafael Lopez, Paul Hoilman, Anthony Giansanti, and Oliver Zapata all had two hits.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

Austin Kirk finally had a poor outing, probably my fault because I wrote about him last week.  Kirk had his shortest outing of the season going two and 1/3rd of an inning while allowing six runs to suffer his first loss of the season.  Kirk’s ERA still sits at a sparkling 2.68 after giving up six runs.  The D-Cubs couldn’t string together much at the plate as the top of the order had trouble getting on base.  Nelson Perez, and Elieser Bonne each had two hits in the losing effort. 

***

FULL BOX SCORE

Trey McNutt continued his solid season on Sunday as he went five innings to earn his second victory of the season.  McNutt gave up three runs, however only one was earned as he lowered his ERA to 2.67.  The middle of the order was once again productive for the Smokies.  Jae-Hoon Ha collected two more hits in the victory as he raised his average to .265 on the season.  Rebel Ridling had a huge day at the plate going 2-for-3 with two home runs and three RBI’s.

 ***

FULL BOX SCORE

For the second straight day the Iowa Cubs couldn’t find any offense as they lost to Salt Lake 2-1.  Rodrigo Lopez was nearly un-hittable as he only allowed one hit over six innings or work, unfortunately he was tagged with a no decision.  Jeff Beliveau had a solid day out of the bullpen going two innings and striking out three.  The I-Cubs were only able to scratch out five hits and one run.  Brett Jackson was 1-for-5 with a double, and Josh Vitters was 1-for-3 with a double and a run.

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.

5/16: Around the Cubs Minor League System

Here is the recap of the Cubs minor league system from 5/16/12, enjoy.

 

Tennessee and Iowa were off.

FULL BOX SCORE

Peoria fell just short of winning their sixth straight game on Wednesday night as they built a 3-0 lead only to lose 5-4 to Clinton.  Ryan Cuneo was 3-for-4 at the plate with a double and three RBI’s.  The other standout at the plate for the Chiefs was Wes Darvill who was 2-for-4 with two runs scored.  Michael Jensen pitched well but didn’t get any help from his defense as he went five innings giving up four runs, but none of those were earned.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

Daytona can’t seem avoid the rain drops as they were rained out on Tuesday which resulted in a double-header Wednesday.  Well, it was supposed to be a double-header but the rain got Daytona again as they settled for just one game.  They made the most of it as they beat Brevard County 6-2 in 8 innings.  Matt Szczur stayed hot as he went 2-for-4 with a triple and a run scored.  Nelson Perez was 1-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored, he is now hitting .313 on the season.  Matt Loosen pitched great but had to settle for a no decision, he went 5 and 2/3rds of an inning while only allowing one run on one hit.

This is why Daytona was rained out. RUN AWAY!

5/14: Around the Cubs Minor League System

Here is the recap of the Cubs minor league system from 5/14/12, enjoy.

FULL BOX SCORE

Kyler Burke was good again on the mound for Peoria, unfortunately he left with a no decision after six strong innings of work.  Austin Kirk took over and was awesome, going two innings to come out with the win as Peoria knocked off Burlington for their fourth straight victory.  Anthony Giansanti was 2-for-4, which accounted for 1/3rd of Peoria’s hits in the victory.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

 All the scoring in this game took place in the first innings as Daytona scratched out a 2-1 victory over Brevard County.  Nelson Perez was the only offense for Daytona as he went 2-for-4 at the plate with two RBI’s.  Austin Kirk was stellar on the mound for Daytona, what else is new.  Kirk went seven strong innings only yielding one run on six hits.  Kirk improved to 2-0 and dropped his ERA to 1.75 on the season.  Tony Zych came on in the 9th and shut the door for his fourth save of the season.

FULL BOX SCORE GAME 1
FULL BOX SCORE GAME 2

Game 1:  The Smokies made up for a season’s worth of frustration against Jackson by pounding out 13 hits and scoring 15 runs to beat the Generals.  Logan Watkins and Rebel Ridling each had 4 RBI’s, and Michael Burgess chipped in with 3 of his own.  Junior Lake hit his first home run of the season en route to a 2-for-2 day in which he scored four runs.  Lost in all of the offense was Trey McNutt’s longest outing of the season as he went 5 strong innings for the win.

Game 2:  This game resembled the typical Smokies-Generals matchup.  The Generals pitching was too much for the Smokies, especially after that outburst in the first game.  The Smokies only managed one run on seven hits in the defeat.  Dallas Beeler went complete, well 7 innings which is how long the game lasted, but ended up with the loss.     

***

FULL BOX SCORE

Another game, and another bomb from Anthony Rizzo, his 12th of the season already.  That was enough for Rodrigo Lopez as he was awesome going five strong innings to pick up his first win of the season.  Blake Lalli hit a solo home run in the 5th to extend the lead and give the I-Cubs just enough to come out on top 3-1.  Scott Maine came on in the 9th inning to close the door earning his 2nd save of the season.

***

FULL BOX SCORE

Another barn burner in Iowa last night as the I-Cubs squeaked out another 1-0 victory over New Orleans.  Casey Coleman was outstanding going seven innings and only allowing two hits while striking out nine on his way to a no decision.  Iowa didn’t fare too much better at the plate as they were only able to manage two hits on the day.  Brett Jackson drew a lead-off walk in bottom of the 8th and would eventually come around and score the game winning run in a 1-0 I-Cubs victory.

 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.
