Kane County 5-3 lineFull Box Score

At The Plate – The Cougars started this double-header off right, it took a little longer than usual, but they got the win.  A big reason why it took eleven innings was the Cougars inability to hit with runners in scoring position, they were a mind numbing 1-for15.  Gioskar Amaya was 2-for-5 with a double, and a walk.  Rock Shoulders, the newly crowned minor league player of the month kept things rolling, he was 2-for-6 with his sixth home run of the season, this one was a walk-off in the bottom of the eleventh.  Chadd Krist was 1-for-2 with three walks, and a run scored in the win.

On The Mound –  Solid work top to bottom on the mound in this one for the Cougars.  Tayler Scott got the start and was solid, he went 5.2 innings giving up two runs on five hits while walking two and striking out one.  Steve Perakslis was awfully good out of the pen going 2.1 scoreless innings giving up one hit while walking one and striking out two.  Matt Iannazzo had his best outing of the season going three scoreless innings to get the win, he gave up one hit while walking two and striking out four.

On The Mound – Another solid job by the Cougars pitching in game two.  Ian Dickson got the start, unfortunately he settled for a no decision, he went 4.2 innings giving up one run, unearned, on two hits while walking two and striking out four.  Brian Smith was stellar out of the pen and earned the win going 2.1 scoreless innings giving up two hits while striking out five.

Daytona 4-29 line

Full Box Score

At The Plate – Not a lot of offense in this one, but just enough for Daytona as they squeaked by the Cardinals 2-1.  Daytona just couldn’t get the big hit in this one to open the game up, they were 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position.  Dustin Geiger had a solid game and a huge hit, he was 1-for-2 with a home run, a walk, and a run scored.  Javier Baez continues to hit, and make errors, he was 1-for-3 with his eleventh error of the season, it will happen, and he will improve.  Chad Noble and Ben Carhart each had a double in the win.

On The MoundYeiper Castillo was disgusting good in this one, unfortunately he didn’t factor in the decision.  Castillo went four scoreless innings giving up two hits while walking one and striking out eight.  Luis Liria was solid out of the pen going two scoreless innings giving up one hit and striking out one.  Hunter Cervenka blew the save, not really his fault, but also got the win.  Cervenka went two innings giving up one run, unearned, on one hit while walking one and striking out four.

Smokies 4-29 game one

Full Box Score

At The Plate – Game one was as good as it gets when it comes to pitching as the game was scoreless into the last of the seventh.  That’s when Jae-Hoon Ha came off the bench and walked off with a three run shot to give the Smokies a 3-0 victory.  That was really the only offense for the Smokies in game one as they managed seven hits, with only one extra base hit, the Ha home run.  Rubi Silva was 1-for-3 with a stolen base, and a run scored in the win.

On The MoundKyle Hendricks was brilliant in this one but did not factor into the decision.  Hendricks went six scoreless inning giving up one hit while walking one and striking out eight.  Marcus Hatley came on in relief and earned the win after working one scoreless inning, striking out two in the frame.

Smokies 4-29 game two

Full Box Score

On The MoundEric Jokisch had a rough go of it early, but then settled in to have a decent outing, but took his first loss of the season.  Jokisch went five innings giving up three runs on six hits while walking one and striking out one.  Frank Batista and Tony Zych kept things close as they both worked a scoreless inning out of the pen, unfortunately the Smokies couldn’t get anything done offensively.

Kane County 4-29 line game 1

Full Box Score

At The Plate – What a crushing loss for the Cougars in game one, I guess the good news is that there is another game right away so they can forget this one.  The Cougars led 6-2 heading to the last of the 7th (7th inning is the last inning in DH games) and they gave up five runs to lose 7-6.  The Cougars only managed six hits but they were awfully productive in scoring six runs.  Daniel Vogelbach blasted his third home run of the season, he ended game one going 1-for-4 with said home run, two RBI’s and a run scored.  Rock Shoulders joined the fun as well as he launched his fifth home run of the season, he finished game one 1-for-3 with two RBI’s and a run scored.  Willson Contreras was 2-for-3 with a stolen base, and two runs scored.

On The Mound –  Felix Pena did everything possible to earn the win as he went six inning giving up two runs on five hits while striking out three.  Then things went south, and quickly.  Ian Dickson was the first out of the pen, he was only able to get through two-thirds of an inning giving up four runs on two hits while walking two and striking out one.  Matt Iannazzo added fuel to the fire in relief of Dickson, as he didn’t retire a hitter and gave up one run on two hits while walking two to get the loss.

Kane County 4-29 line game 2

Full Box Score

At The Plate – Game one’s disaster just zapped any energy that the Cougars might have had, and they still could have won this one.  For the second time today the Cougars blew a late inning lead, this one wasn’t as bad as the first game though.  The Cougars could only manage two hits in game two, I know, not very exciting.  Daniel Vogelbach was 1-for-3 with another home run, an RBI, and a run scored.  Oliver Zapata had the only other hit, a single, he also walked.

On The MoundMichael Heesch pitched well early, then struggled late.  Heesch worked five innings giving up four runs on six hits while walking one and striking out seven.  Steve Perakslis worked a scoreless inning out of the pen, but it was too little too late.

Smokies 4-25 line

Full Box Score

At The Plate – The Smokies are playing good baseball, and if not for a few blown saves recently could be on a real impressive winning streak.  It was the Ronald Torreyes show for the Smokies, he was 3-for-3 with a walk, a double, a triple, and a run scored from the lead-off spot.  Only three other Smokies registered hits in this one, but it was enough.  Rafael Lopez and Jae-Hoon Ha recorded the RBI’s with Ha going 1-for-4, and Lopez going 1-for-3 with a double.

On The MoundDallas Beeler is dealing right now, and last night was no exception.  Beeler went seven scoreless innings giving up seven hits while walking one and striking out two.  Zach Rosscup found some trouble out of the pen but was able to hold the lead, he gave up one run on one hit while walking one in one inning of work.  Brian Schlitter worked a stress free ninth inning for his first save of the season, he has yet to give up an earned run this year.

At The Plate – A late rally wasn’t enough for the Cougars as they fell to the Tin Caps 6-4 after trailing 6-1 in the third inning.  The Cougars approach was fantastic in this one, they just couldn’t get the big hit when they needed it.  They had eight hits, walked five times, and only struck out four times, unfortunately they came up just short.  Rock Shoulders continues to hit, he was 1-for-3 with a walk, and a run scored, he’s now hitting .406 on the season.  Marco Hernandez was also 1-for-3 with a walk in the loss.  Bijan Rademacher was 2-for-4 with an RBI, and a run scored, he’s now hitting .314 on the season.

Smokies 4-21 lineFull Box Score

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.

Daytona 4-21 lineFull Box Score

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.

Kane County 4-21 line

Full Box Score

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.
