Minor League Wrap -- July 25, 2007

In honor of the fact that I am staying so far away from the main thread that I will very shortly be reaching the point where Newtonian and Einstinian physics start to show meaningful disagreement, a late minor-league wrap.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs obliterated the Colorado Springs Sky Sox. Imagine this: you manage to score eight runs and yet you were never in the ballgame after the second inning. And the Cubs biggest inning was the eight-run fourth. That has to be demoralizing.

The hero of the evening was Matt Murton, who went 4-for-6 with a double and a grand slam. But there were plenty of other contributors: Eric Patterson went 3-for-6, Felix Pie 4-for-6 with a triple, Geovanny Soto 3-for-5 with a triple and a home run, Josh Kroeger 2-for-4 with two home runs and two walks (it's like the second coming of Adam Dunn), and John Nelson 4-for-6 with two doubls and a homer.

The pitching was... not quite as excellent as the offense. Les Walrond pitched in relief, which is noteworthy.

Tenessee Smokies

The Smokies lose to the Mudcats 12-5. Would it shock you to hear that Wade Miller gave up seven of those runs in three innings of work? Tyler Colvin is continuing his development, going 1-for-4 with a double. Colvin is putting up a line of .239/.252/.381 so far in AA. Jemel Spearman went 2-for-5, both hits home runs.

Daytona Cubs

The D-Cubs played a double header at seven innings apiece, beating the Palm Beach Cardinals 2-5 in the first game and 3-6 in the second.

Peoria Chiefs

Had the day off.

Boise Hawks

Beat the Vancouver Canadians 3-4. Dylan Johnson goes 2-for-4 with a home run and a walk. Josh Donaldson and Tyler Burke were hitless.

AZL Cubs

Lose to the AZL Athletics 6-5 in the 11th inning.
