Cubs Minor League Wrap--May 25

Happy birthday to me, I guess. I guess my present is a very light report tonight. I'd rather have a win.

Iowa Cubs

The Cubs fell to the Sacramento River Cats, 5-3.

Jeff Samardzija lost the battle to former Cub Sean Gallagher today. The Shark gave up four runs on eight hits over only 4.2 innings. Samardzija walked two and struck out five.

Right fielder Richie Robnett went 1 for 4 with an RBI triple in the second inning. Robnett also scored in the second.

Tennessee Smokies

The Smokies were once again vassalized by the Birmingham Barons, 8-2.

Starter Casey Lambert took the loss. He allowed three runs on nine hits. He walked one and struck out one.

The Smokies were beaten by the guy who wasn't just traded for Jake Peavy; Aaron Poreda.

DH Blake Lalli went 2 for 4 with a run scored and an RBI. Shortstop Darwin Barney was 2 for 4 with a double.

Daytona Cubs

The Florida State League took Memorial Day off to remember those who died in service to this country. But that means it's now six days and counting since the D-Cubs have played.

Peoria Chiefs

The Chiefs were rained out. Josh Vitters was named the Midwest League's Offensive Player of the Week, to no one's surprise.
