Minor League Wrap--June 7

Buster Olney had a nice story on Randy Wells today.

Iowa Cubs

The I-Cubs were steamrolled by the Round Rock Express, 6-2.

Esmailin Caridad got the start today when Rich Harden was moved back to tomorrow. He didn't pitch too badly despite allowing four runs on seven hits over six innings. The impressive part of his afternoon was the nine strikeouts compared to only one walk. Caridad's record fell to 3-7.

Center fielder Sam Fuld went 2 for 3 with a double and a triple tonight. He also walked once and stole a base. Fuld had one RBI.

Catcher Steve Clevenger was 2 for 4 with a double.

Aaron Miles was 1 for 4 with a run scored in his rehab appearance.

Tennessee Smokies

It's now three wins in a row for the Smokies as they got into the eyes of the Chattanooga Lookouts, 5-2.

Casey Coleman improved his record to 5-2 as he allowed only 2 runs in a 6.2 inning start. Coleman allowed four hits. He walked three and struck out two.

Brian Schlitter entered the game with two on and one out in the ninth inning and got a fly out and a ground out to end the game and collect his eighth save on the season.

I don't think it's any coincidence that the Smokies are starting to win now that their DP combo is coming out of a funk. Second baseman Tony Thomas was 2 for 4 with a double today. He also scored twice. His shortstop partner Darwin Barney also went 2 for 4 with a double. Barney had three RBI today.

First baseman Blake Lalli went 1 for 4 with a solo home run, which was his third on the season.

Daytona Cubs

I don't know about life on Mars, but I can tell you it sure does rain on Jupiter.

Peoria Chiefs

The Chiefs were mauled by the Kane County Cougars, 7-1.

Christopher Archer had the start this afternoon and got hit for four runs in a four-inning start, although two of the runs were unearned. Archer surrendered five hits and walked two while fanning four.

Second baseman Ryan Flaherty provided all of the Chiefs' offense with his second home run in as many nights. Flaherty was 1 for 3 and now has seven homers on the season/
