Cubs Minor League Wrap--April 12

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs clipped the wings of the Memphis Redbirds, 6-2 for their first victory of the season.

Starter Mike Parisi went three innings and allowed one run on two hits. He walked two and struck out two. Parisi only threw 64 pitches before getting pulled, so I assume he was on a pitch count.

Mitch Atkins got the win with four effective innings of relief. Atkins gave up one run on one hit (a triple). He didn't walk anyone and struck out two.

For those on "Jeff Gray to Wrigley" watch, he threw a scoreless ninth inning tonight in a non-save situation. He gave up one hit and walked one.

Right fielder Micah Hoffpauir was the big hero tonight, going 3 for 5 with a run-scoring double that broke the tie in the seventh inning. Shortstop Darwin Barney went 2 for 5 with an RBI and a run scored. First baseman Bryan LaHair was 2 for 3 with a walk and an RBI.

Second baseman Matt Camp went 2 for 4 with a double. He had one RBI and scored twice. Third baseman Bobby Scales was 2 for 3 with a double and a walk. Scales scored once.

Center fielder James Adduci entered the game in the fourth inning and had a 2 for 3 night. Adduci scored once, batted one in and had a stolen base.

Adduci entered the game in a double-switch for Sam Fuld. Fuld was 0 for 2. Someone was going to ask.

Tennessee Smokies

The I-Cubs win their first game, so the Smokies must lose their first. The Smokies tonight were were edged by the Mississippi Braves, 5-4 in ten innings.

Starter Craig Muschko allowed two runs in the first on a two-run home run, but after that settled down and pitched effectively. Muschko went six innings and allowed only those two runs on three hits. Muschko walked two and fanned four.

Dustin Sasser gave up a run in the tenth inning to take the loss. Sasser gave up the one run on two hits. He didn't retire a batter.

Shortstop Starlin Castro had a 2 for 4 game tonight. He had one RBI and one run scored. He also stole his third base of the young season. Catcher Robinson Chirinos was 2 for 4 with an RBI.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs were birdseed for the Dunedin Blue Jays, 4-2.

Starter Brooks Raley was effective tonight, going five shutout innings. He allowed four hits and one walk. He struck out five.

Chris Siegfried gave up two runs in the ninth inning to claim the loss. Siegfried went one inning and gave up three hits and two walks. He struck out two.

Center fielder Brett Jackson was 2 for 4 with a walk and an RBI. DH DJ LeMahieu was 2 for 5 with the other RBI.

Peoria Chiefs

The Peoria Chiefs were shut down by the Beloit Snappers, 3-0.

Starter Nicolas Struck surrendered three runs in four innings, although only one of the three runs was earned. He was touched for six hits, including one home run. Struck walked one and struck out three.

Logan Watkins got a chance to play shortstop tonight and went 3 for 4. Third baseman Greg Rohan and first baseman Justin Bour were both 2 for 4.
