At the Plate:
For the second straight night the Iowa Cubs went to battle without Javier Baez (sore back), and tonight they found a way to come out on top. Brett Jackson got an opportunity to lead off, and did a number of good things, he went 1-for-3 with two walks (Cubs Way), an RBI, and was caught stealing. Arismendy Alcantara was also a part of the offensive attack, he went 1-for-3 with a walk, an RBI, a stolen base, and a run scored in the win. Matt Szczur didn’t start this one but came up with a huge hit in the ninth, a two run single to give the I-Cubs some breathing room.
On the Mound:
Pure domination from Tsuyoshi Wada tonight as he improved to 2-0 on the season. Wada embarrassed the Cardinals lineup, he worked 6.2 scoreless innings, giving up four hits while walking none, and striking out ten…ten! Marcus Hatley worked 1.1 scoreless innings out of the pen, and Brian Schlitter, who was sent to Iowa earlier today worked a scoreless frame to close this one out.
At the Plate:
The Smokies brought their bats to this one as they pounded out ten hits en route to scoring five times as the beat the Lookouts 5-1.

A win! Daytona finally ended the night in the win column thanks to some solid pitching, and some offensive thunder. It was the Albert Almora show, and what else is new really? Almora was 2-for-5 with a double, his first home run of the season, three RBI’s, a stolen base, and two runs scored. Dan Vogelbach joined the fun tonight, he was 1-for-4 with two RBI’s, maybe this will get him going.

At the Plate:
A wild win for the Cougars as they almost blew two different four run leads, but they were able to hold on to move their record to 6-3 on the season. Carlos Penalver did the job from the top of the order tonight as he was 1-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base, and three (!) runs scored. Yasiel Balaguert can carry a team when he gets hot, he’s hot right now, he went 2-for-4 with an RBI, and a run scored, he has ten RBI’s on the season now. Another guy win ten RBI’s is Jacob Rogers, he went off tonight, he was 2-for-4 with a double, his second home run of the season, four RBI’s, and a run scored. Not to be left out, David Bote also delivered, he was 2-for-4 with his first home run of the season, two RBI’s, and a run scored.
On the Mound:
Dicey, but effective tonight. Juan Paniagua got the start and struggled with his command, he worked four innings, giving up one run on two hits, while walking four (see?), and striking out six. Gerardo Concepcion continues to make a comeback this year as he worked two scoreless innings, giving up two hits, while walking one, and striking out two. Scott Frazier struggled, that right there is an understatement. Frazier did not register an out, did not give up a hit, but walked all three batters he faced en route to giving up three runs, ouch. Josh Davis got knocked around a bit, but was decent, he worked two innings, giving up one run on four hits. Tyler Bremer closed this one out, but it wasn’t without some adventure, he worked one inning, giving up three runs on two hits, while walking one, and striking out two… whew.
