Cubs Minor League Wrap--June 2

I'm afraid I don't have any good news to report down on the farm, either.

I'm glad I didn't stick around for the end of the game tonight.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs were silenced by the Nashville Sounds, 3-0.

Esmailin Caridad started and took the loss tonight. He pitched six innings and gave up three runs on five hits and a walk. Caridad fanned one.

The I-Cubs only managed four singles, and Caridad had one of them.

Tennessee Smokies

The losing streak has now reached ten games as the Smokies were shut out by the Carolina Mudcats, 1-0 in ten innings.

Starter Casey Coleman pitched on the high-wire tonight. He pitched 6.2 innings without allowing a run, despite giving up eight hits and five walks. Two double plays helped as did two strikeouts.

Jayson Ruhlman, recently promoted to then demoted from Iowa, picked up where he left off in Tennessee by throwing two perfect innings of relief. He struck out one.

Todd Blackford got the loss in relief when he allowed a solo walk-off home run.

The Smokies beat Iowa by hitting five singles. Left fielder Ty Wright had two of them in a 2 for 4 night.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs were infiltrated by the Sarasota Reds, 6-1.

James Leverton saw his record fall to 2-6 when he allowed four runs in a four-inning start. He didn't get any favors from his defense, as three of the four runs were unearned. Leverton gave up three hits and three walks. He struck out three as well.

The Reds stopped catcher Robinson Chirinos' two-homer streak tonight. Chirinos went 1 for 1 with a walk, a hit batsman and a sacrifice fly that accounted for the Cubs lone run.

Center fielder Tony Campana went 2 for 4.

Peoria Chiefs

The Chiefs game was suspended after two innings with the score tied at one. The game will be finished tomorrow.

Josh Vitters' twelve home runs in the month of May is a Peoria Chiefs record for home runs in any month.
