Pitching was the story throughout the Cubs system on Wednesday as they only gave up two runs in the three games combined. It would be nice to see that become the trend as the season continues.

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

A wild second inning saw the Chiefs take a 4-0 lead in the top half, then trail 5-4 in the bottom half en route to a 7-6 loss to Cedar Rapids. Kyler Burke made the start for Peoria and didn’t get much help from his defense. Burke gave up six runs over five innings, however only three were earned as Burke finished with a no decision. Pin-Chieh Chen went 1-for-3 at the plate with his first home run of the season, and three RBI’s. Paul Hoilman and Taylor Davis each had two hits in the losing effort.
Daytona built up a 3-0 lead into the bottom of the 5th, but couldn’t hold it as they surrendered five runs in said 5th en route to a 5-3 loss to Palm Beach. Eric Jokisch started for the D-Cubs and probably had his worst outing of the season as he gave up five runs in just 4 and 2/3rds of an inning on his way to his fourth loss of the season. Matt Szczur is on fire as he launched his first home run of the season while going 2-for-3 at the plate with two RBI’s, he also added a double for good measure. Szczur now has his average up to .265 on the season thanks in part to him hitting .385 over his last 10 games.
The Smokies and Braves combined for 22 hits but only five total runs in a 3-2 Smokies win. Dallas Beeler was just good enough to get his first win of the season as he went five innings giving up two runs on eight hits. Jae-Hoon Ha was 2-for-4 at the plate with two doubles, a walk and a run scored as the middle of the lineup did most of the damage. Rebel Ridling and Justin Bour each finished with two hits, with Ridling driving in one, and Bour driving in two.
Not a good night for the I-Cubs as they were shut down by the Salt Lake Bees in a 6-1 defeat. Iowa only managed three hits on the night as they couldn’t get anything going against the Bees staff. Chris Rusin turned in a quality start going six innings while giving up three runs on seven hits but took his 3rd loss of the season. Mike MacDougal who has done nothing but crap the bed since he was signed gave up two more runs over two innings of work, his ERA sits at 13.50. Brett Jackson, Anthony Rizzo, and Josh Vitters each had a hit, and that was it for the Iowa offense. Jackson had a triple and Rizzo had a double in the losing effort.
