Minor League Wrap -- August 28, 2007

A great win for the major league club last night.  Could the minors echo the success?

Iowa Cubs

As the Kool-Aid Man would say, "Oh, yeah!"  Cubs 8, Redbird JV 2.

I know, I know, but Ronny Cedeno DID have a single, two doubles, and a triple...I HAVE to mention him. Scott Moore went two for four.  Joe Simokaitis was more than all-rightus with two hits.  John Nelson was, um, difficult to rhyme with, but slugged a two-run homer.

Pitchers?  Randy Wells, two runs in 4 innings.  Neil Cotts, Rocky Cherry, and Cory Bailey, one scoreless inning each, and Clay Rapada, two scoreless innings for the win.  

Tennessee Smokies

Booyah!  Another victory, 7-5 over Chattanooga. Tyler Colvin singled and was HBP, Sam Fuld doubled, and third baseman Kyle Reynolds went 3-5.  Rocky Roquet continued to struggle, yielding two hits, a walk, and a run in 1.1 innings.  The Smokies turned three double plays.

Daytona Cubs

Did not play.

Peoria Chiefs

Oops!  They lost a close one but showed some spunk.  Trailing 9-0 going into the bottom of the seventh, the Chiefs scored 9 unanswered runs, but then gave up the game winner to Kane County in the ninth.  Peoria's nine runs scored on only 8 singles, one double, and four walks.  Two errors by the Kane County third baseman helped.  

Boise Hawks

Dang!  In a 12-inning marathon, Spokane outlasted the Hawks, 3-2. Josh Donaldson had the big night at the plate, falling only a triple short of the cycle.  He did add three walks, so if you add those up, it's kind of a cycle for slow guys.  Dustin Sasser threw five strong, shutout innings.

AZL Cubs

Team watch: 7-2 win.  Angel Guzman pitched one perfect inning with no K's.  

Josh Vitters watch: No hits in 5 AB, now at 2-30 in 7 games.  All I can say is, remember Ryno.
