Minor League Wrap -- August 13, 2007

Iowa Cubs

It wasn't exactly a contest as they beat the Oaklahoma RedHaws 10-2. Geovanny Soto drives in five runs for the first time this year as he goes 2-for-3 with two doubles and a walk. Les Walrond gives up just one earned run in five innings. Neal Cotts pitched out of the pen, walking three, striking out two, and giving up no runs in 1 1/3rd innings. Yeah, there's a reason you're not hearing his name brought up as the lefty to replace Will Ohman. (Ohman, incidently, has yet to pitch in Iowa. We'll keep you posted.)

Tenessee Smokies

They have the day off before starting a five-game series against Chattanooga.

Daytona Cubs

Also, a day off.

Peoria Chiefs

Lost to the Kane County Cougars 10-0. As you can imagine, there's little to discuss on offense. Al Albequerque gave up four runs in the first inning to start off the affair and lasted only one inning after that; his efforts to salvage his ERA while still screwing over his team by committing a fielding error went unrewarded. Michael Bartek came in, gave up six runs, one unearned on a fielding error by Darwin Barney.

Boise Hawks

It's a 12-3 pounding of the Yakima Bears! Yakima, in case you were wondering, is a goofily-named city in Washington state. The Bears are a D-backs affiliate (and that's exactly how they put it on their website. Guess spelling out diamond might scare away the paying customers.)

Oh, right, the baseball game. Zachary Ashwood (and this time I shall not be lead astray by his MILB.com player card!) got the win after pitching five innings, surrendering a two-run homer and striking out four. Jordan Latham gave up one run in four innings to earn the save. The four-inning save is something I have not yet encountered.

Tyler Burke went 1-for-3 with two walks. Left fielder Ty Wright went 4-for-5 with a home run and two triples.

AZL Cubs

Did not play.
