FULL BOX SCORE

Iowa scored enough to win most nights, but giving up seven runs in the seventh proved to be too much.  It looked good for Iowa early as they scored the first five runs of the game.  Oklahoma City would get right back in the game when they scored four in the third.  Iowa would score the next three runs of the game, however the bullpen could not hold the lead giving up seven in the seventh.  Offensively there were a lot of good things as Brett Jackson stayed red hot going 3-for-5 with two doubles and a triple.  Anthony Rizzo was back on Saturday, he went 2-for-4 with a double.  Former first rounder Josh Vitters continues to swing a good bat as he had two hits including his ninth home run of the year.  Luis Valbuena, Ty Wright, and Blake Lalli all had multi-hit games.  Unfortunately for Cubs this game was pitched by are all designated team, as Rodrigo Lopez, Ryan Rowland-Smith, and Mike MacDougal were are all terrible.  Hopefully Iowa can respond tomorrow with a victory.
