Iowa 4-15-14

Full Box Score

Looked like it was going to be a rough one right away tonight as the Zepghyrs put up five runs in the second inning, but Iowa bounced right back with four in their half of the second.  Unfortunately that was all that Iowa could do with the bats as they dropped this one to New Orleans 8-4.

At the Plate:

  • Chris Coghlan was 1-for-3 with a walk, and a run scored.
  • Chris Valaika continued his hot start, he was 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored, and is now hitting .333 on the season.
  • Logan Watkins had a big two run single tonight, he went 1-for-3 with a walk, two RBI’s, and a run scored.

On the Mound:

  • Carlos Pimentel was beat up tonight, he took the loss as he worked five innings, giving up seven runs (oops) on six hits, while walking five (oops, again), and striking out five.
  • Yoanner Negrin, a personal favorite, was solid out of the pen.  Negrin worked 3.1 innings, giving up one run on five hits, while walking none, and striking out three.
  • Marcus Hatley mopped things up as he worked two-thirds of an inning, striking out both guys he faced.

Daytona 4-15-14

Full Box Score

The Daytona Cubs can’t find any offense, and recently their pitching has faltered as well, that’s not a good mix.  The trends continued tonight as the D-Cubs could only manage to score three runs on nine hits in a 10-3 loss to red hot Dunedin.

At the Plate:

  • Pin-Chieh Chen had a solid game at the top of the order, he went 2-for-4 with an RBI.
  • Tim Saunders is not having any trouble at the plate right now, he went 3-for-4 with two doubles, and two stolen bases tonight.  He is eight for his last fourteen at the plate, yikes.
  • Rock Shoulders had a big game tonight, he was 2-for-4 with a double, his first home run of the season, an RBI, and two runs scored.
  • Bijan Rademacher has been outstanding this year, it continued in this one, as he went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, and a run scored, he’s now hitting .379 on the season.

On the Mound:

  • Jose Rosario didn’t have much going for him in this one, he took the loss to drop to 0-2 on the season.  He worked 4.1 innings, giving up eight runs, six earned, on seven hits, while walking six, and striking out two, yuck.
  • Starling Peralta was really good out of the pen, he worked 2.2 scoreless innings, giving up no hits, he didn’t walk anyone, and he struck out three.
  • Stephen Perakslis struggles in relief, he worked one inning, giving up two runs on two hits, while walking one, and he didn’t record a strikeout.

Kane County 4-15-14 game one

Full Box Score

The Cougars could only manage two runs on two hits in game one, and that was enough for another win.  19 year-old Jen-Ho Tseng was brilliant in picking up his first win of 2014.

At the Plate:

  • Ben Carhart is having a solid 2014 so far, and he was able to find some success in this one, he went 1-for-2 with a double, and a walk.
  • Yasiel Balaguert is unconsious at the plate right now, he was 1-for-2 with an RBI, and a run scored, he’s now hitting .409 on the season.

On the Mound:

  • All Jen-Ho Tseng, all the time.  Tseng was stellar, he worked 5.1 scoreless innings, giving up six hits, while walking none, and striking out six.
  • Zack Godley was just as good out of the pen to pick up his second save of the season.  Godley worked 1.2 scoreless innings, giving up one hit, while striking out four of the five guys he faced.

Kane County 4-15-14 game two

Full Box Score

Another light hitting game for the Cougars, and another win, how about that?  The Cougars are rolling and it’s because of their pitching, Blackburn followed Tseng with a “one up you” performance, and that was great to see tonight.

At the Plate:

  • Jacob Hannemann was 1-for-4 out of the lead-off spot, with his fifth stolen base of the season.
  • Carlos Penalver had the only run scoring hit of the game, for either team, he was 1-for-3 with a double, and an said RBI.
  • Ben Carhart capped off a productive doubleheader going 1-for-3 in the win.

On the Mound:

  • Paul Blackburn couldn’t have been much better tonight as he picked up his first win of 2014.  He worked six scoreless innings, surrendering one lone hit, while walking one, and striking out six, hot fire!
  • Jose Arias worked the final inning for the save, how’s this for a line?  One scoreless inning pitched, no hits, walked one, and struck out FOUR, in one inning, yep.

Minor Matters

SPOTLIGHT GAME

Daytona 7-28 line

Full Box Score

At the plate - Daytona couldn’t get the big hit when they needed it in this one, but still found enough offense to escape with a win.  Ben Carhart was 2-for-5 in the win, he is now hitting .251 on the season.  Dustin Geiger has put together a stellar 2013, he was 2-for-4 with a walk in this one and is now hitting .289 on the season.  Both Taiwan Easterling and Brad Zapenas had two hits, and a run scored today.  Daytona registered nine hits but they were only 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left eleven men on base.

On the mound - I was really excited for C.J. Edwards Cubs debut today and he didn’t disappoint.  Edwards was nasty going five scoreless innings giving up one hit while walking one and striking out eight.  The only hit Edwards gave up was of the infield variety, and not one ball made it out of the infield.  That wasn’t the only impressive stat from this one as Edwards struck out the first seven hitters he faced, unfortunately he walked away with a no decision.  Lendy Castillo took over and was solid going three scoreless innings giving up one run, unearned, on one hit while walking three, and striking out three to earn his first win of the year.  Austin Reed worked the ninth for his third save of the year, he allowed one hit and that was it.

Minor Matters – May 4, 2013 (Cubs Minor League Recaps)

Smokies 5-4 line

Full Box Score

At The Plate - Oops, the Smokies probably want a do over after this one as they were manhandled all night.  The Smokies only managed four hits all night in the 8-0 loss.  Arismendy Alcantara, Rafael Lopez, Joanthan Mota, and Eric Jokisch were the only Smokies to record hits in this one, all singles.  Blah.

Daytona 5-4 line

Full Box Score

Kane County 5-4 line

Full Box Score

On The MoundFelix Pena was outstanding for the Cougars tonight, and really has been all year long.  Pena went seven innings giving up one run on four hits while walking one and striking out seven to earn his first win of the year.  Justin Amlung shut the door the rest of the way as he worked two scoreless innings giving up three hits while walking one and striking out one.
