Here is your nightly recap for the Cubs minor league system, enjoy.

Peoria was off

FULL BOX SCORE

 A crushing defeat for Daytona as they lost the lead in the top of the 9th inning, and lost the game in the top of the 10th.  The D-Cubs couldn’t generate much offense, but they held the lead into the 9th behind a strong start from Austin Kirk.  Kirk was awesome, going 8 innings, and only giving up two runs, his ERA now sits at 1.69.  He ended the night with a tough luck no decision.  Rubi Silva had the big hit of the night for the D-Cubs, which was a two run triple in the 3rd inning.

FULL BOX SCORE

Brooks Raley pitched well enough to earn a victory Tuesday Night, and it looked like he was until the late innings.  Montgomery battled back and erased a 4-1 deficit by scoring 5 runs combined in the 7th and 8th en route to a 6-5 victory.  Logan Watkins, and Michael Burgess each went deep for the Smokies in the losing effort.

FULL BOX SCORE

Everybody hits, and everybody drives runs in, it was an offensive explosion in Memphis as the I-Cubs pounded out 20 hits and 13 runs en route to a 13-4 victory.  Every Cubs starter, including Jay Jackson had a hit, and every Cubs starter except Josh Vitters had an RBI, that’s hard to do.  Brett Jackson was 4-for-5, Dave Sappelt was 3-for-6, Adrian Cardenas was 3-for-6, the list goes on, check out the full box score, it’s a treat.

Thanks for reading everyone, go Cubs!

I-Cubs Can’t Hold Lead Late

  The I-Cubs looked well on their way to yet another win but the rex spex wearing Nate Robertson faltered late allowing Round Rock to beat the I-Cubs 6-5 in a thriller.  The top of the I-Cubs order (1 thru 5) was clicking on all cylinders tonight, going 10-for-21 with two doubles, a home run and two RBI’s.  Brett Jackson had a big day at the plate going 2-for-5 with a double, a homer, and an RBI.  Anthony Rizzo had a rather pedestrian day at the plate going “only” 1-for4 with a double.  Travis Wood was shaky but was in line for the victory late, he went five innings giving up three runs on on eight hits, while walking three and striking out seven.  Full box score after the jump.
