FULL BOX SCORE

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.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

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.

****

FULL BOX SCORE 

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.

7/26: Around the Cubs Minor League System

Taking you through the Cubs minor leagues on Thursday, July 26.

FULL BOX SCORE

The AZL Cubs lost a rough one on Thursday to the Ranger 5-4.  Leading most of the night, the Cubs gave up two in the eight, one in the ninth, and one in the tenth to blow what appeared to be a win.  Those relievers who struggled were Ryan Hartman, Nathan Dorris, and losing pitcher Daniel Adrian.  It wasn’t all bad on the mound as Carl Lang and Ethan Elias each pitched three solid innings combing to strike out seven and surrender only one run on four hits.  Every night we look forward to seeing how Albert Almora and Jorge Soler and tonight was no different.  Almora started strong with hit first double, but ended the night 1-for-5.  Soler ended the night 1-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base.  Garrett Schlecht had a night he won’t forget as he hit his first home run of his professional career, a two-run shot in the fourth.  Shawon Dunston Jr. stayed hot adding two more hits, raising his average to .296.  Carlos Penalver also had two hits and Jacob Rogers added a double.  The AZL Cubs havn’t had too many disappointments, but tonight was one of them.

FULL BOX SCORE

Boise lost a low scoring game to Yakima 1-0.  Although there was only one run scored there was plenty of excitement in this one as there were ejections and the benches almost cleared.  It all started a few nights ago when Wilson Contreras was bowled over twice and then was hit by a pitch in this game.  Starting pitcher Jose Arias took exception and retaliated hitting a Bears player in the seventh.  Arias and manager Mark Johnson were promtly ejected.  Things didn’t end there though.  Contreras found his way on and bowled over the Yakima catcher and on his way back to the dugout had words for the Bears dugout.  Benches almost cleared and Contreras was ejected from the game.  Back to the baseball part of it.  Jose Arias pitched quite well taking the tough loss on Thursday.  He gave up one run on three hits in six innings, he also walked two and struck out three.  Michael Hamann and Eduardo Orozco combined to pitch three innings of scoreless baseball in relief.  Offensively there wasn’t much to talk about.  The highlights were Marco Hernandez having two hits and Daniel Vogelbach getting another hit.

FULL BOX SCORE

Peoria scored early and it held up as they beat Cedar Rapids 7-2.  The Chiefs got two in the first, one in the third, and three more in the fourth to get an early lead.  Javier Baez had a nice night once again going 2-for-2 with a double, two runs scored, and two RBIs.  Zeke DeVoss and Yaniel Cabezas also had twho hits with DeVoss driving a run and scoring two.  Chadd Krist continued his great performance at the plate adding another hit, his sixth double and driving in two runs.  On the mound Michael Jensen was at it again winning his ninth game of the year.  He pitched six solid innings, surrendering two runs on four hits, while striking out six and walking zero.  Larry Suarez and Bryce Shafer finished this one off pitched three scoreless innings to end the game.

FULL BOX SCORE

Daytona outlasted Bradenton beating them 9-7 in a high scoring battle.  The Cubs offense had a few big innings, scoring three in the second, the fourth, and two in the seventh.  Offensively they were led by Rafael Lopez who was 3-for-4 with two doubles and three RBIs.  Lopez was not the only Cubs player to have a big night as John Andreioli was 2-for-4 with a triple, two RBIs, four runs scored, and his 36th steal of the year.  Matt Szczur added two hits and he also drove in a pair, raising his average to .295.  Rubi Silva and Elieser Bonne each had two hits as well and Bonne drove in two on the evening.  Austin Kirk started and got the win, his fifth of the year.  He allowed four runs on six hits in six innings, walking five and striking out three.  Ryan Searle pitched the last three holding on the record his first save of the season.

Despite scoring four Tennessee dropped the game to Jacksonville losing 6-4.  Dallas Beeler started, but did not factor in the decision allowing four runs, three earned and striking out eight in five innings pitched.  Tony Zych took the loss as he allowed two runs in his two innings of work.  On the bright side, there were some nice things that happened at the plate.  Junior Lake stayed hot going 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored, and an RBI.  Justin Bour and Greg Rohan each connected for a home run on Thursday.  Nate Samson added three hits of his own.  In an unfortunate accident Jae-Hoon Ha had to leave the game early on a stretcher after he hit his head on a cement wall wall that had no padding.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Jae-Hoon and hope to have good news on this soon.  We will keep you updated as we know more.

FULL BOX SCORE

How many different ways can Iowa find to lose, because it seems like they find a new one every night.  After having a lead most of the night they gave up a single run in the fifth and six to tie the game.  After scoring two in the tenth, they gave up three to lose 6-5.  Michael Bowden to the loss allowing all three runs in the tenth.  Casey Coleman was solid pitching 5.2 innings giving up three runs on seven hits.  Jay Jackson pitched well in relief allowing no runs in his two innings of work.  The Cubs were led by James Adduci at the plate having his best game in Iowa.  He went 4-for-5 with a home run, double, a run scored, and two RBIs.  Josh Vitters was the other bright spot from the offense going 3-for-4 with a double, triple, and a run batted in.  Nothing is going right for Iowa at this time, hope they can turn it around and end the year on a high note, but only time will tell.

FULL BOX SCORE 

Michael Burgess and Juan Apodaca‘s power was on display Saturday leading Tennessee to a 4-2 win on Saturday.  Apodaca hit a three-run homer and Michael Burgess hit a solo shot, his tenth of the season.  That was all the offense the Smokies would need as Dae-Eun Rhee and the bullpen would do all the rest.  Rhee gave up two runs on five hits in five innings.  He struck out six in route to his sixth win of the year.  Tony Zych pitched two scoreless innings, striking out three and Marcus Hatley came in to shut it down.  That he did striking out three in two innings of work recording his fourth save of the season.  It is nice to see Tennessee come out on top of a well-played game from both teams.

FULL BOX SCORE 

A seven run second from Omaha was all they needed beating Iowa 7-1.  Randy Wells got the start and was terrible allowing seven runs on six hits in just 1.2 innings pitched.  As bad as Randy Wells was the offense couldn’t get much going either.  James Adduci had two hits and scored a run, the only Cubs player with a multi-hit game.  Dave Sappelt drove in the Cubs lone run.  Josh Vitters had his 27th double of the season and Brett Jackson also added a hit.  Other than that there wasn’t much to the game at the plate.  Casey Coleman pitched 5.1 good innings in relief not allowing a run and striking out three.  Alberto Cabrera had another nice outing out of the pen striking out one in one inning of work.
