Minor League Wrap -- September 3, 2007

And then there were four.  

Iowa Cubs

John Nelson hit two home runs. Fan appreciation, baby!  Joel Santo, promoted all the way from Daytona because they were rained out their last three games, and Iowa needed a starter, gave up 4 runs in 7 innings.  Koyie Hill was the DH.  And, thus endeth 2007 for the Iowa team: Losing 5-4.

Tennessee Smokies

Tyler Colvin had two hits.  Jeff Samardzija gave up four runs in four innings.  And the Smokies limped into the playoffs by virtue of having the second-best overall record to Huntsville, which won the division championship in both halves of the season.  Carolina 4, Tenn 3.

Peoria Chiefs

Darwin Barney hit his second home run of the season.  Jose Ceda struck out 6 batters in 2.1 innings.  Al Maestri struck out the side in the ninth.  And Sandberg's team ended the regular season with a 5-2 win over Cedar Rapids.  

Boise Hawks

Tony Thomas had two hits, including a homer.  Zach Ashwood, a switch-hitting pitcher, did not get booed after earning the win with 5 strong innings.  Boise wins, 5-3.

Thomas is now at .307/.397/.540 for the season, with 40 R, 26 SB (only 2 CS) in 44 games.  Jon Wyatt is at .307/.407/.462, with 59 R and 40 RBI in 64 games.  

The Hawks have two games left.  The season is now over for Iowa, Daytona, Peoria, and the AZL Cubs.  Tennessee continues in the playoffs.
