Minor League Wrap -- August 27, 2007

I took Al's advice and took a day off from baseball.  So here's another morning edition of the MLW.

Iowa Cubs

The irresistible force and the immovable object didn't exactly collide, but did coexist in the same person.  Geovany Soto slugged his 25th home run in 373 AB, but had a key passed ball in the 8th inning.  Ronny Cedeno had two hits of his own, but was charged with another error that fateful inning.  The I-Cubs lost 10-8 on a Danny Ardoin double in the Memphis 8th.  Scott Moore also homered, and I guess he's healthy. JR Mathes took the loss.  Will Ohman got two flyouts from the two batters he faced.  

Tennessee Smokies

In what is probably Donnie Veal's second-to-last start this regular season, he turned in a decent outing: 7.1 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 5 K.  Most importantly, O BB.  The Smokies won 7-3.  Tyler Colvin went 3-4 with a home run.  He now stands at .295/.313/.456 in AA.  

Daytona Cubs

A 3-run 8th inning keyed the Cubs victory over Vero Beach, 4-3.  A Ryan Harvey double and Jeff Rea triple drove in the runs.  

Peoria Chiefs

Five players had two hits each, and the Chiefs won 4-2 over Beloit.  Jeremy Papelbon got 10 strikeouts vs. no walks in 7.1 innings, dropping his ERA to 3.18 on the year (3.35 as a starter in 7 games).  Al Maestri finished for his 10th save.  Marquez Smith hit his 3rd home run in 12 games at Peoria.

Boise Hawks

Beat Yakima 7-5.  Our man Tony Thomas had two singles and three RBI, and Kyler Burke went 2-4.  Bunton, Latham, and Muller pitched.  Only John Muller was really effective.  

AZL Cubs

Win a close one, 8-7. I guess Chris Walker is rehabbing again.  This is his fourth team in the Cub system this year.  Talk about an organizational soldier.  Josh Vitters went 0-4.  The win goes to Greibal Miguel Cuevas novas...cool.
