Minor League Wrap -- September 1, 2007

Sunday morning back to school week edition.
Keyword: Hallelujah!

Iowa Cubs

With half the talent traded away or promoted, the AAA team slumped into September with an 8-1 loss to Omaha.  When Koyie Hill is the DH, you know something's wrong--even if he did get two hits.  JR Mathes was the sacrifical lamb.  The spotless virgin was played by Michael Christl, an undrafted free agent signee after his senior season at Bradley, who hails from Naperville.  After some games in the AZL, his first real minor-league appearance was two hitless, shutout innings.  

And how about this?

FORFEIT: Memphis' 7-6 victory over Iowa on August 18th has been nullified by the Pacific Coast League office giving Iowa the victory by forfeit.  The game will be recorded as a 9-0 victory for Iowa although all of the statistics accrued in that game will remain official except for the pitcher decisions.  Please note that the breakdowns in the sidebar and on the following pages in these Iowa Cubs media notes still treat that game as an Iowa loss.  

Tennessee Smokies

Donald Veal is back to his old ways, pitching five innings, giving up only two hits, and striking out eight, but walking six.  Rocky Roquet nearly gave the game away with four runs in the ninth, but Tennessee won, 7-4.  Tyler Colvin homered.

Daytona Cubs

Postponed due to rain.

Peoria Chiefs

Jeremy Papelbon only lasted five innings, but got the win, as the Chiefs outscored Cedar Rapids, 4-2.  Johnson, Barney, Adduci, Canzler, and Wright each had two hits.  

Boise Hawks

Boise outlasted Spokane 8-5.  Josh Vitters had a hit and an RBI...and an error.  Tony Thomas got on base four times, and Kyler Burke hit a three-run homer.
