7/18: Around the Cubs Minor League System

Minor league recap for July 18th, 2012.

Tennessee Smokies were off.

FULL BOX SCORE

For most of the year the hitting in Arizona has been the highlight on Wednesday the pitching took center stage defeating the AZL Dodgers 4-0.  The Cubs used four pitchers to complete the three hit shutout.  Anthony Prieto started and pitched two innings striking out two while not allowing a baserunner.  Arutro Maltos-Garcia pitched two scorelss innings and Loiger Padron struck out three in his three innings of work.  Padron was awarded the win, his second of the season.  Alvido Jimenez pitched the last two innings preserving the shutout for the Cubs.  Offensively the Cubs did not do as much as we have come to expect, but there were still some highlights.  Ben Carhart was 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI.  Daniel Lockhart had a hit and drove in two runs.  Neftali Rosario was 2-for-3 and scored two runs on Wednesday night.  A great performance by the staff on Wednesday led to this win.

Boise’s two game winning streak came to an end dropping Wednesday’s game to Yakima 8-4.  Tayler Scott got the start giving up four runs in 4.2 innings.  He did not factor in the decision though as he left with the game tied.  Hayden Simpson took the loss giving up four runs in 2.1 innings.  The Cubs offense came off the bats of only a few players.  Five different players had two hits, but every other player was hitless.  Gioskar Amaya hit his fourth home run of the season and Trey Martin drove in a run with his two hits.  Jeimer Candelario had two hits and drove in two runs on Wednesday.  Stephen Bruno and Xavier Batista also had two hits a piece and scored a run.  Let’s see if the Hawks can get back on track on Thursday.

FULL BOX SCORE

It was an exciting game between Peoria and West Michigan, but the Chiefs did not come out on top.  Losing by two entering the eighth, Peoria tied the game and sent it to extra innings.  Peoria scored one in the tenth, but then gave up two in the bottom half to lose 9-8.  On the offensive side of things every Chiefs player had a hit.  Chadd Krist was 2-for-5 with a double, two RBIs and two runs scored.  Pin-Chieh Chen and Zeke DeVoss also had two hits and drove in two on the night.  Javier Baez continued his hot stretch adding two more hits, bringing his average to .333.  Bijan Rademacher and Oliver Zapata each drove in a run for Peoria.  The pitching was up and down on Wednesday Jose Rosario and Sheldon McDonald were not very good responsible for the first seven runs West Michigan gave up on Wednesday.  Luis Liria and Austin Reed each pitched two scoreless innings to put Peoria in line for the win.  Larry Suarez gave up two unearned runs in the tenth to take the loss.  This is a tough one to swallow as Peoria came back, took the lead, and then blew it in the end.

Two first inning runs turned out to be all Charlotte would need beating Daytona 3-1 on Wednesday.  PJ Francescon got the start and took the loss allowing three runs on seven hits and walking four in 5.1 innings.  The bullpen did all they could to keep the game close as Eduardo Figueroa, Ryan Searle, and Brian Schlitter combined to pitch 3.2 innings allowing no runs on only two hits.  The Daytona bats never really got going, only having five hits.  Taylor Davis was 1-for-2 including his second home run of the season.  The Cubs also got single hits from Matt Szczur, Matt Cerda, John Andreoli, and Elliot Soto.

FULL BOX SCORE

Iowa took advantage of a lot of New Orleans mistakes to win 2-1 in 11 innings.  The Cubs won when James Adduci scored on a throwing error by New Orleans pitcher Gary Glover.  Brooks Raley pitched seven good innings allowing no runs on five hits.  he also walked four and struck four out, leaving with a chance to get the win.  Jay Jackson, however gave up a run in his one inning of work.  Michael Bowden pitched two scoreless innings and Jeff Beliveau struck out the side in his one inning of work earning his fourth win of the season.  Dave Sappelt was the only Cubs player to have more than one hit, he had two, including a double.  Brett Jackson hit his 20th double of the season and Welington Castillo also had a hit.  A nice win for Iowa on Wednesday night.

7/13: Around the Cubs Minor League System

Recapping July 13th, 2012 in the Cubs minor league system, enjoy.

FULL BOX SCORE

The AZL Cubs have a way of punishing their opponents, and more often than not Daniel Vogelbach is leading that charge, tonight was more of the same as the Cubs beat the Rangers 7-3.  Vogelbach was a man possessed tonight as he went 3-for-4 with his 6th home run of the season, two doubles, an RBI, a walk, and two runs scored.  Vogelbach now has 10 doubles on the season, the man doesn’t now how to hit singles, he’s a slugging machine right now.  Ben Carhart and Jacob Rogers made sure Vogelbach had plenty of help as each guy had two hits, Carhart is now hitting .340 while Rogers is now hitting .429 on the season.  Timothy Saunders had a shocking 0-for-4 dropping his average all the way down to .475 on the season, please catch that sarcasm, I’m laying it on pretty thick.  Anthony Prieto started for the Cubs and only went one inning, he didn’t give up any runs but gave up one hit and issued three walks before departing.  Hunter Ackerman came on in relief and earned the win after going three innings giving up one run on two hits, while walking two and striking out two.  Nathan Dorris came on in the ninth to earn his first save of the season.

FULL BOX SCORE

A late inning collapse can be blamed for Boise’s loss as they seemingly had this one wrapped up leading 4-2 heading to the 8th.  Vancouver scored four in the 8th and one more time for good measure in the 9th to take beat Boise 7-4.  Tayler Scott started for Boise and was his typical solid self going four strong innings allowing two runs, one earned, on five hits while walking two and striking out one.  Hayden Simpson chipped in 3.2 innings of relief but was on the mound for Vancouver’s comeback.  The defense behind Simpson didn’t help as he allowed three runs on six hits but only one was earned.  Gioskar Amaya continued his solid season at the plate going 2-for-5 with his 3rd home run of the season, he his now hitting .298 on the campaign.  Dong-Yub Kim also had a nice night going 2-for-4 with a run scored and Rock Shoulders continued showing patience at the plate as he was 0-for-1 with three walks.

FULL BOX SCORE

For all the press the Chiefs offense gets, and well deserved, the pitching has shown flashes of brilliance as well, tonight Joseph Zeller dazzled.  Zeller was perfect in his six innings of work, that’s right, no hits or walks in six innings while striking out four en route to his first win of the season.  The Chiefs couldn’t finish off the perfect game eventually allowing one run on two hits in an 8-1 victory over Dayton.  Chadd Krist is becoming a story, the 2012 draft pick has already been promoted to Peoria and he is swinging the bat well.  Krist was 2-for-4 again tonight with his first home run as a Chief, he also had a double, two RBI’s and two runs scored.  Paul Hoilman and Wes Darvill each chipped in with two RBI’s a piece.

FULL BOX SCORE

Losses can’t get much harder to take than this one.  The Daytona Cubs were well on their way to a victory behind P.J. Francescon leading 7-0 heading to the 6th inning, then the wheels fell off.  Palm Beach blitzed the D-Cubs for seven runs in the sixth inning, and three in the seventh to take a 10-7 lead, eventually winning 11-8.  Francescon was brilliant for the D-Cubs, he went five innings allowing no runs on two hits, while striking out three, but had to settle for a no decision.  Matthew Spencer, Ryan Searle, Scott Weismann, and Frank Del Valle were really bad, no other way to put it as they tossed a combined four innings giving up 11 runs, all earned, on 11 hits while walking three and striking out three.  Rubi Silva had a solid day at the plate going 3-for-6 with a triple, his ninth, yes ninth of the season, and an RBI.  Ronald Torreyes and Rebel Ridling each had two hits in the loss, as six different D-Cubs had RBI’s.

FULL BOX SCORE

The Smokies never really allowed Birmingham into this one as they jumped all over the Barons with four in the first, then tacked on three in the fifth and sixth to take a 10-0 lead.  The Barons tried to save face by pushing across three runs in the final two innings but it didn’t help as the Smokies rolled to a 12-3 victory.  Erik Jokisch was nearly perfect going five innings allowing no runs on one hit while walking four and striking out six.  Jokisch struggled with his command, see the six walks, but was untouchable otherwise in earning his 5th win of the season against one loss.  Trey McNutt made his debut as a reliever, after officially being moved to the pen yesterday.  He was solid going two innings in relief giving up no run on one hit and striking out two.  Justin Bour had a stellar game at the plate going 2-for-6 with a double, four RBI’s and a run scored.  Logan Watkins wasn’t going to let Bour have all the fun as he went 3-for-4 with two RBI’s, two walks, and three runs scored.  Junior Lake, Jae-Hoon Ha, and Michael Burgess all had two hits in the blow out win.  The Smokies managed to pound out 14 hits and 12 runs and did it all without a home run.

FULL BOX SCORE

A late rally from Iowa fell just short as they dropped a close one to Omaha 4-3, the I-Cubs scratched across two runs in the ninth unfortunately it was too little too late.  Brooks Raley was really good for the I-Cubs going five innings and allowing two runs on six hits while walking one and striking out four.  Unfortunately that wasn’t good enough to avoid a loss as Raley fell to 4-5 on the season with a 3.57 ERA.  Adrian Cardenas continued his recent stretch of outstanding play, proving that he is a play every day kind of guy, he won’t reach that max potential by coming off the bench.  Cardenas was 2-for-3 with a double, triple, a walk, and a run scored in the loss.  Welington Castillo was 3-for-4 with a run scored, but that was the extent of the I-Cubs offense as they were a horrendous 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position and left eight guys on base.
