I-Cubs Drop a Close One

In a game that went back and forth the Isotopes came out on top late, scoring the game winning run in the top of the ninth off of Jeff Beliveau.  It was a very rare quiet night for both Brett Jackson and Anthony Rizzo as both went hitless.  Josh Vitters had two hits, as did Adrian Cardenas who also added a two run homer.  Randy Wells went six innings, but struggled giving up four runs on six hits, while striking out five and not walking anyone.


Rizzo’s Bomb Propels Iowa to Victory

With the I-Cubs trailing 5-2 in the bottom of the 8th inning Anthony Rizzo launched a game tying three-run homer, shortly after that the I-Cubs walked off in the ninth inning with the win, 6-5 over Round Rock.  The Rizzo – Jackson connection continued to tear the cover off the ball Sunday afternoon.  Jackson went 2-5 with an RBI double, and a run scored to go along with the previously mentioned Anthony Rizzo bomb.  Jackson is hitting .438 so far this season, and Rizzo is hitting at a .375 clip.  Jeff Beliveau turned in his second straight outstanding performance out of the bullpen going two innings, and striking out four guys.


Young Guns Star in First Intrasquad Game

One game played this Spring, and already the buzz is all about Matt Szczur and Brett Jackson.  Matt Szczur drove in six runs, including a grand slam, a two run double, and accomplished the rare feat of scoring from second base on a sacrifice fly for the Blue Team who blasted the white team 10-4.  Brett Jackson was the one who got things started however, basting a lead off homer.  Sparkplug Tony Campana finished the day with three hits, and three runs scored.

As you can imagine, in a game with 14 runs the pitching took it on the chin.  Travis Wood gave up six runs on six hits including two homers in three innings, Wood is battling for one of the remaining rotation spots, not sure that this start will go too far in determining anything.  Randy Wells, who is also battling for one of the remaining starts, gave up three runs on four hits in three innings of work.  What the Cubs are looking for here is command, and innings at this point, and the first few games are not going to pretty for pitchers.
