The Iowa Cubs were pecked by the Memphis Redbirds, 6-5.

Casey Coleman had his first bad start of the season this afternoon. He pitched 5.2 innings and gave up all six runs. He surrendered seven hits and one walk. Coleman fanned three Redbirds.

Left fielder Brad Snyder hit two home runs for the I-Cubs today, providing most of their offense. Snyder was 4 for 5 with a double and the two home runs, both of which were solo shots. Snyder had three RBI total and scored just the two times. Snyder now has three home runs on the year.

Third baseman Matt Camp was 2 for 5 with a run scored and an RBI.

Tennessee Smokies

You'd think a little rain wouldn't bother a team called the Carolina Mudcats, although I understand why it might bother the Smokies.

Daytona Cubs

Starter Christopher Archer had a bad case of gopheritis tonight, giving up two home runs in the four innings he pitched. Archer allowed three runs on seven hits. He walked one and struck out four.

Jordan Latham's fifth save gave him the Midwest League lead in saves. Latham pitched a scoreless final two frames. allowing only one hit. He struck out four and walked two.

Third baseman Matt Cerda had a two-run single in the bottom of the seventh was the margin of victory today. Cerda was 2 for 4. Cerda is hitting .340 on the young season.
