Cubs Minor League Wrap -- May 1

The whole system scored four runs tonight.

The scouting reports for April are done and will be posted soon. But we still need you to keep them coming!

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs were shut down by the Memphis Redbirds, 5-1.

Jose Ascanio got his first loss of the season, although he didn't pitch poorly. Ascanio gave up two runs on five hits over five innings. Ascanio walked one and struck out three.

Kevin Hart allowed no hits and a walk in a scoreless inning of relief. He struck out one.

Second baseman Bobby Scales is back with the I-Cubs after not getting called up to the majors yesterday. He took out his frustrations by hitting his third home run of the season. Scales was 1 for 4 on the evening.

Jason Dubois went 2 for 4.

Tennessee Smokies

Probably went to Space Camp since their game in Huntsville was rained out.

Daytona Cubs

The D-Cubs were bitten by the Clearwater Threshers, 5-3.

Starter Andrew Cashner pitched 3.1 innings without allowing a run. He gave up two hits, walked two and struck out two.

Peoria Chiefs

The Chiefs pitching staff keeps rolling, but the offense never got going and the Chiefs were stung by the Burlington Bees, 1-0.

Starter Marcus Hatley got the hard-luck loss. He allowed one run over five innings on three hits and two walks.

Reliever Ryan Buchter tossed two shutout innings and Erik Hamren threw one perfect inning.
