At The Plate:
The Iowa Cubs are having trouble consistently scoring runs, one night they explode, the next they can’t buy a hit, like tonight. The I-Cubs could only manage four hits, and one run in the loss tonight. Chris Valaika, and Chris Coghlan each finished the night going 1-for-4, and that was about it. Christian Villanueva continued his hot stretch, he went 1-for-3 with a double, and a run scored in the loss. The only RBI tonight belonged to Eli Whiteside, he was 1-for-3.
On The Mound:
Not a bad job at all from the Cubs staff, they are just in a position where they can’t afford to make any mistakes. Chris Rusin had a much better second start, but fell to 0-2 on the season. Rusin worked six innings, giving up three runs, two earned (Baez error), he didn’t walk anyone, and struck out five. Alberto Cabrera was decent out of the pen, he worked two innings, giving up one run on three hits, while striking out one. Marcos Mateo finished things up tonight by working one scoreless inning.
At The Plate:
An exciting home opener for the Cougars as they walk off in the 12th inning with a 4-3 victory. Jacob Hannemann has had a good start to 2014, he was 2-for-5 with an RBI, a stolen base, and a run scored in the win. Yasiel Balaguert, Daniel Canela, Trey Martin, and Carlos Penalver all finished the night going 1-for-5 as the Cougars could only manage six hits in the twelve inning victory.
On The Mound:
It was an outstanding night for the Cougars pitching, not just the results but who was pitching, very exciting. Nineteen year old Jen-Ho Tseng got the start and was very good, he just had one rough inning. Tseng worked five innings, giving up three runs on eights hits, while walking none, and striking out five. Gerardo Concepcion was the next arm on for the Cougars, and he was brilliant, working three scoreless innings, while walking none, and striking out three. Both Tyler Bremer, and Zack Godley each worked two scoreless innings out of the pen with Godley picking up the win.
At The Plate – Not much happening for the Cubs offense in this one as they lost a 1-0 heart breaker to the Redbirds. The Cubs could only manage six hits, all singles in the loss. Brent Lillibridge was 1-for-4, as was Ryan Sweeney, and Donnie Murphy. Darnell McDonald, Brian Bogusevic, and J.C. Boscan were each 1-for-3 in the loss.
On The Mound – The Cubs pitching did all they could and then some in this one, but still couldn’t get a victory. Drew Carpenter got the start and was solid despite having some command issues. Carpenter worked 5.2 scoreless innings giving up two hits while walking five and striking out six. Hisanori Takahashi worked 1.1 scoreless innings with a strikeout. Yoanner Negrin finally gave up a run, unfortunately that’s all it took to lose this one. Negrin went 1.2 innings, he gave up one run on two hits while walking one and striking out two, his ERA “sky-rocketed” to 0.79 on the season.
At The Plate – The Smokies looked to be well on their way to another win after a four run second inning, then they weren’t. Matt Szczur had another solid day going 1-for-4 with two walks, two RBI’s, and a run scored. Rubi Silva was 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI, a run scored, a caught stealing, and an outfield assist, busy day. Anthony Giansanti finally has returned to action and had a solid day going 2-for-2 with a walk, a double, and a run scored.
On The Mound – A mixed bag from the Smokies pitchers, and a very costly error by Ronald Torreyes didn’t help. Alberto Cabrera got the start and was average going 5.1 innings giving up four runs on five hits while walking four and striking out one. Marcus Hatley was solid out of the pen going 1.2 scoreless innings while giving up one hit and striking out one. Kevin Rhoderick continues to struggle, he worked an inning giving up two runs on four hits whiles striking out one. Trey McNutt was outstanding, going two scoreless innings while striking out one. Tony Zych was the hard luck loser, he worked an inning and gave up three runs, all unearned, on one hit while walking one.
At The Plate – Not a lot to cheer about in this one as the D-Cubs did their best Major League Cubs impersonation in this one. Daytona could only manage two hits in this one, singles by Timothy Saunders and Jorge Soler. They did manage to earn three walks, but were 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position.
On The Mound – Not much better here for the D-Cubs. Ryan Searle got the start and got roughed up again. Searle went four innings giving up five runs on six hits while walking two and striking out four. Austin Reed wasn’t much better out of the pen going two innings giving up four runs, two unearned, on six hits while striking out two. David Cales worked two scoreless innings giving up one hit and striking out three, the lone bright spot of the day.
At The Plate - Crazy ballgame yesterday as the Cougars built a 4-0 lead going into the 6th inning, then things got weird. The Chiefs scored six times in the top of the 6th to take a 6-4 lead, then the Cougars scored three times in the bottom half to go back in front and that’s how it ended. Pin-Chieh Chen got a chance to lead-off in this one and delivered going 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI’s, and a run scored. Rock Shoulders, or the guy who rarely makes an out, was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored, he’s hitting .424 on the season, yikes. Chadd Krist was 2-for-4 with an RBI, and a run scored. Trey Martin finally busted out with the bat, and made a tremendous catch in CF as well, he was 3-for-4 with a stolen base, an RBI, a double, and two runs scored. Fun fact, Daniel Vogelbach had a stolen base today, the guy is rather athletic for his size.
On The Mound – Kane County only used two pitchers in this one, rather rare given the fact that six runs were given up, but I guess that’s what happens when it’s all in one inning. Felix Pena got the start at went 5.2 innings giving up five runs on five hits while walking two and striking out two. Ian Dickson got the win coming out of the pen going 3.1 innings giving up on run on four hits while striking out three.

At The Plate – Hey! A Win! The I-Cubs got their first win of the 2013 season on Wednesday night. Ryan Sweeney was 2-for-5, the Cubs newcomer is now hitting .438 on the season. Edwin Maysonet was 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored. Luis Flores was 1-for-4 with his first home run of the season.
On The Mound – Really nice night from a staff that has been beaten up in the early going. Drew Carpenter got the start and also walked away with the win going five innings giving up two runs on three hits while walking two and striking out four. Yoanner Negrin was great out of the pen going 2.2 innings giving up no runs on two hits while walking one and striking out two. Blake Parker was stout as well in earning his first save of the season going 1.1 innings giving up only one hit while walking none and striking out two.
At The Plate – Not a whole lot of offense in this one for the Smokies as they could only manage two runs on six hits. Rubi Silva was 2-for-4 with a double. Justin Bour was solid tonight going 1-f0r-2 with two walks, a home run, an RBI, and a run scored. Arismendy Alcantara was 1-for-4 with a double and three strike outs in the loss.
On The Mound – Dallas Beeler had a really good outing, unfortunately he was still hung with the loss. Beeler went six innings giving up two runs on six hits while walking one and striking out three. The normally reliable Kevin Rhoderick had a rough go of it as he gave up four runs on two hits in 1.1 innings of work, he also walked two. Frank Batista was solid out of the pen going 1.2 innings giving up no runs on two hits while striking out one.
At The Plate – Well, this one will be talked about for one thing, the incident involving Soler, I wrote about it earlier, you can read about it here, just going to recap the game now. Crazy game not counting fights as Daytona blew a two-run lead in the ninth and ended up losing by 5 in eleven. Zeke DeVoss had another solid night at the top of the lineup going 2-for-6 with a home run, an RBI, and a run scored. John Andreoli stayed red-hot going 3-for-6 with a double, he’s now hitting .478 on the season. Jorge Soler did some good work with the bat…at the plate, going 1-for-3 with a walk, a double, and a run scored. Stephen Bruno, Ben Carhart, and Taiwan Easterling all had two hits in this one. Dustin Geiger and Easterling both went deep for their first home run of the season.
On The Mound – Some good, some really bad for the D-Cubs. Ben Wells got the start and struggled with his command which cut his outing short. Wells went four innings giving up four runs, three earned, on seven hits while walking four and not striking out anyone. Austin Reed didn’t fare much better as he could only go one-third of an inning giving up three runs on two hits while walking two. Ryan Searle was outstanding again going 3.2 innings giving up no runs on one hit while walking one and striking out four. Luis Liria not only got the blown save but the loss as well as he went 2.2 innings giving up seven runs on seven hits while walking two and striking out three.
At The Plate – The Cougars had an awesome approach at the plate today as they walked eight times, unfortunately they were only 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Jeimer Candelario didn’t have a hit in this one but he was able to walk three times. Daniel Vogelbach was 1-for-3 with a walk, and an RBI. Another day, another two hits for Rock Shoulders, he went 2-for-5 and is now hitting .467 on the season. Bijan Rademacher was 1-for-2 with two walks, and two runs scored in the loss. Trey Martin found some production today going 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, and two RBI’s.
On The Mound – Remember how I mentioned how great the Cougars approach was because of the eight walks? Well Cougars pitching issued ten free passes, not good. Tayler Scott got the start and went two innings giving up four runs on three hits while walking five, he was slapped with the loss. Nathan Dorris was outstanding in this one going four scoreless innings giving up only one hit and striking out five. Steve Perakslis couldn’t keep things close as he went two innings giving up five runs on five hits while walking two and striking out three. I mentioned Bijan Rademacher already, well he got to pitch as well, he worked one inning giving up one run, unearned, on no hits while walking three, it was that kind of day.
What a weird day, thanks for reading,

Finally a Cubs farm team is close to Chicago! It will be a fun Spring and Summer getting to go see this team play in person so often. A guy you don’t see on this list is Albert Almora, odds are once he is healthy he will be patrolling CF for the Cougars and Martin will move to one of the corner spots, making up a very talented defensive outfield. In the meantime, Daniel Vogelbach probably headlines this roster, but there are some quality prospects on this team for Cubs fans to go see. Right handed pitcher, and 2012 first round draft pick Pierce Johnson will be in the rotation, Rock Shoulders, and Gioskar Amaya will also be guys to watch. Another thing I like is that a lot of these guys played together last year in Boise, so there is a lot of familiarity there.
Boise beat Yakima on Wednesday night 3-2 in a thrilling winner take all game three. Felix Pena was the story in this one pitching seven scoreless innings allowing five hits and striking out two. The Hawks got the scoring started as they scored three in the third inning. Wilson Contreras started the inning with a walk and moved to second on a wild pitch. Trey Martin followed with a single and runners were on at the corners with Gioskar Amaya at the plate. Contreras scored the first Boise run on a wild pitch and after an Amaya walk, Stephen Bruno flew out for the first out of the inning. Jeimer Candelario walked to load the bases for Dan Vogelbach who hit a towering fly ball to left. It appeared the left fielder Michael Lang was under it, but he lost it in the lights and the ball fell for a single driving in two more runs. Marco Hernandez grounded into a double play and the third inning ended with Boise up 3-0. Felix Pena continued throwing up zeros and the game went to the bottom of the eighth with the Hawks leading 3-0. Brian Smith relieved Pena and got in trouble right away giving up a single to the first batter and walking the second. The next batter hit a slow ground ball to Gioskar Amaya who attempted to get the force out at second base, but threw it away and the Bears now had one run in and runners on second and third. Yakima added a run and moved the tying run to third base after a ground out to Amaya. Eduardo Orozco relieved Smith and got a big strike out for the second out of the inning. With the tying run on third base Jacob House hit a ball up the middle that Gioskar Amaya made a diving stop on and threw House out from his knees for the third out of the eighth. Boise threatened in the ninth, but came up empty and it was onto the bottom half with Boise up 3-2. Orozco stayed in the game and quickly got the first out via the strikeout. The next batter grounded out to Amaya and Boise was now one out away from the series. The last chance for Yakima, the speedy Michael Lang hit a slow roller to shortstop Marco Hernandez who came up with a great play to give Boise the win and NWL East Division Championship. Orozco was great in relief recording the last five outs, notching his first save of the postseason and giving Felix Pena the win. Albert Almora had another hit on Wednesday, bringing his average to .417 in the three game series. Boise will travel to Vancouver to play game one on Thursday night, with game two and game three if necessary to be held in Boise on Saturday and Sunday.

Our nightly trip through the Cubs system. Daytona was postponed and Iowa suspended in the top of the fifth.
The AZL Cubs got things going early taking a 6-1 lead after three innings and they never looked back winning 8-3. Albert Almora had one of his best games as a Cubs going 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI. Dan Lockhart, Alberto Mineo, and Trevor Gretzky all had two hits of their own.

The Cubs used three pitchers to get this win with Anthony Prieo pitching the first three, striking out three and allowing one run. Carlos Martinez-Pumarino threw the next three allowing two runs and striking out four. Finally Steve Perakslis pitched the last three striking out two allowing no runs on one hit in getting his third win of the season.
Boise stayed hot beating Salem-Keizer 4-1. The first question on everyone’s mind will be, did Dan Vogelbach hit another home run? No he did not, but he did go 1-for-4 with an RBI. Izaac Garsez did hit a home run and drove in two runs. Trey Martin went 2-for-3 with an RBI and Wilson Contreras had three hits of his own, scoring two runs as well. Pierce Johnson got his first start in Boise pitching two innings allowing one run on four hits, while striking out two. Felix Pena pitched great out of the bullpen in getting his second win of the season. He gave up no runs on two hits, striking out four in five innings. Eduardo Orozco earned his fourth save pitching the final two innings allowing one hit and striking one out. If Boise can keep this up it looks like they will be well on their way to a winning the second half.
Powered by a Jorge Soler grandslam Peoria beat Beloit 5-3. We were at the game so will do a more in depth recap with a bunch of pictures and stuff Sunday.

Looking at the Cubs system on Monday, August 8. Daytona had the day off.
The AZL Cubs were able to tie the game at eight in the bottom of the ninth, but gave up two in the 10th to lose 10-8. Pierce Johnson took the mound for the second time and thew two scoreless innings, striking out two. As good as Carlos Martinez-Pumarino was in his first 29 innings pitched Monday was a real struggle. He gave up seven runs, six earned on seven hits in just 1.1 innings. Jasvir Rakkar struck out two in two scoreless innings. Alvido Jimenez took the loss, his third of the season giving up two runs in the tenth. Justin Marra had really nice night at the plate going 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored, and two RBIs. Garrett Schlecht also had three hits on the night and drove one in. David Bote had two RBIs and Ben Carhart added one. Albert Almora had one hit and Jorge Soler was back in the lineup going 1-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored.
Wow, Boise did it again beating Everett 11-7. The story in this one was the offense as they pounded out 14 hits to go along with the 11 runs they scored. After a rough game yesterday Gioskar Amaya got back on track, going 3-for-5 with a home run. Rock Shoulders got the start at first tonight and delivered going 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored. Carlos Escobar had two hits including a home run and two RBIs. Stephen Bruno also hit a homer and ended with two RBIs as well. Trey Martin ended the night with two RBIs and Wilson Contreras added a double and an RBI as well. The staff struggled on Monday. Justin Amlung started, but only lasted two innings giving up two runs. Felix Pena did not pitch well in four innings, but did get his first win of the year. He gave up four runs in four innings, however he did strike out five. Nathan Dorris secured the win notching his first save of the season, striking out three in 1.1 innings. The Hawks continue to roll and look to keep it going.
Peoria dropped their fifth in a row losing to Clinton 8-6. Leading 4-1 after the first, this was not the outcome Peoria had in mind. The Chiefs did a few good things at the plate on Monday. Bijan Rademacher, Wes Darvill, and Sergio Burruel all had two hits, Darvill and Burruel driving in a run a piece. Timothy Saunders was 1-for-5 with a double, but drove in three runs and scored one. Zeke DeVoss added a hit out of the leadoff spot and also stole his 30th base of the season. Zach Cates got the start, but did not factor in the decision tossing 4.2 innings, giving up three runs on seven hits. Pete Levitt pitched a scoreless 1.1 innings and was in line for the win. Justin Berg struggled and took the loss allowing three runs, two earned in two innings. Jeffry Antigua couldn’t keep it close enough for the Chiefs as he gave up two runs in only one inning. This was another tough loss for Peoria on Monday.
Tennessee score two in the ninth, but it wasn’t enough as the Smokies lost to Jackson 7-6. Tennessee did have 10 hits and seven runs, so the offense did a pretty nice job. What else can you say about Justin Bour. He hit another home run today, his 15th of the season and ended the day 2-for-4 with three RBIs. Junior Lake continued his solid season going 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs. Matt Szczur, who has been struggling since moving to Tennessee went 2-for-5 with a double, a run scored, and a stolen base. Lendy Castillo started and pitched only two innings allowing one run on one hit and striking out two. Dae-Eun Rhee just didn’t have it tonight, allowing six runs in five innings and taking the loss. The story in this one was Justin Bour who is just tearing it up right now.
Iowa gave up a run in the top of the ninth losing to Reno 2-1. Frankie De La Cruz pitched five innings allowing only one run, while striking out four and walking three. Blake Parker and Michael Bowden combined to throw three scoreless innings, but Jairo Asencio took the loss allowing one run in the ninth. Greg Rohan had nice night at the dish going 2-for-4 with the Cubs lone RBI. Blake Lalli also added to hits, including a double. Alfredo Amezaga also had a double and Dave Sappelt contributed with a base hit of his own. Unfortunately I have feeling this is how most games are going to go offensively for Iowa the rest of the way. Let’s hope I am wrong and they can do something positive going forward.
