Minor League Wrap--June 15

It's my first Father's Day.  I guess I should be doing something else than typing this thing.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs swept a double-header (before actual fans) from the Nashville Sounds, 7-0 and 7-1.

In the first game, J.R. Mathes pitched the seven-inning complete game shut out.  He allowed only two hits and two walks while striking out two.

Right fielder Andres Torres was 2 for 4 with two doubles, two runs scored and two RBI.  He also stole a base.  First baseman Jason Dubois was 2 for 3 with a double, two runs scored and a stolen base.  Felix Pie was 2 for 4 with an RBI.

In the second game, Mike Burns got the win with five innings of work, allowing one run on two hits, both doubles.  Burns struck out five and walked no one.

Just like the boys in Chicago, the Iowa Cubs knocked Derrick Turnbow around in the second game.  Second baseman Bobby Scales hit his eighth home run.  Scales was 2 for 3 with three RBI. 

The I-Cubs are now 40-29 and have a 5.5 game lead in the PCL American North Division.

Tennessee Smokies

The Smokies snapped their eight-game losing streak and topped the Mississippi Braves, 6-4.

Mitch Atkins was the star of this game.  Atkins improved his record to 5-6 with 5.2 innings, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk.  Atkins struck out six and went 2 for 3 with a double at the plate.

Second baseman Nate Spears was 3 for 3 with two RBI.

Daytona Cubs

Soaking up the sun as the All-Star break ends.

Peoria Chiefs

The Chiefs tied the Burlington Bees, 3-3 in a game that ended after five and a half innings because of rain.

Robert Hernandez got the complete game tie, so to speak.  Hernandez threw six innings and allowed three runs on six hits and three walks.  Hernandez struck out seven.

First baseman Luis Bautista hit his first home run of the year.  Bautista knocked in all three Chief runs.  Third baseman Jovan Rosa was 2 for 2.
