Cubs Minor League Wrap-- July 7

I went to the Boise Hawks game tonight. I'll say more in a fan post tomorrow. The Hawks didn't look very good, but if you want some good news to hold you over until tomorrow, I'll just tell you that there is no need to worry about Hak-Ju Lee staying at shortstop. He's a helluva defensive shortstop. The best I've ever seen playing for the Hawks.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs were run off the rails by the New Orleans Zephyrs, 4-1.

Casey Fossum took the loss, going five innings and allowing four runs on six hits. He was impressive in that he struck out seven and didn't walk anyone.

Right fielder So Taguchi lead-off the game with his second home run of the season. Taguchi was 1 for 3 with a walk.

Tennessee Smokies

The Smokies were sunk by the Carolina Mudcats, 6-0.

Jay Jackson had a rough start tonight. Jackson allowed four runs on three hits and two walks in 5.1 innings. Jackson only struck out two.

Left fielder Ty Wright was 2 for 3 with a walk. Second baseman Tony Thomas (there's a name we haven't heard from in a while) was 2 for 4.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs were done in by the Dunedin Blue Jays, 5-1.

Chris Carpenter continues the Cub system's bad starts tonight. Carpenter allowed five runs on five hits and four walks in only four innings. The silver lining was that only three of the runs Carpenter allowed were earned and he did strike out eight.

Center fielder Tony Campana was 2 for 3 with a walk and the lone D-Cub run.

Peoria Chiefs

Hey, Hey! The Peoria Chiefs thrashed the Beloit Snappers, 7-3.

Starter Chris Archer allowed only four hits and one run over 4.1 innings. The bad news on Archer was that he did walk four. The good news was that he struck out five (as well as only allowing one run, of course.)

Alberto Cabrera also pitched 4.1 innings and got the win because of the stupid "starter must go five" rule. Cabrera gave up two runs on five hits. He walked one and struck out three.

Third baseman David Macias was 3 for 4 and scored twice.

Shortstop Ryan Flaherty was 2 for 4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored. Second baseman Junior Lake had a double in a 2 for 3 game. He scored once and had one RBI.

Catcher Mario Mercedes was 2 for 4 with an RBI.

Boise Hawks

The Hawks were blanked by the Eugene Emeralds, 6-0.

I'll say more about this game tomorrow.

AZL Cubs

The Cubs outslugged the Brewers, 10-7.
