Travis Wood had a solid effort on Tuesday, but the I-Cubs couldn’t muster any offense in a 4-0 defeat to Memphis. Welington Castillo, and Luis Valbuena each had two hits, but the I-Cubs couldn’t string anything together against Shelby Miller and the Cardinals. Full box score after the jump.
22 hits and 10 runs was not enough for Iowa Sunday Night as they fell to the Round Rock Express 11-10 in 13 innings. Every I-Cubs starter had at least one hit, all but two of them had a run scored as well. Tony Campan had a big day goinf 3-for-4 with a solo home run. Adrian Cardenas had four hits, and Alfredo Amezaga had five hits. Anthony Rizzo continued hit torrid start going 3-for-7 with a run scored. Randy Wells was the opposite of good, he only lasted 2 and 1/3rd innings giving up 8 runs on 8 hits, while walking three and striking out 3. Full box score after the jump.
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.
