Cubs Minor League Wrap--April 26



Iowa Cubs

Raindrops keep fallin' on my double-head (er)

Tennessee Smokies

The Smokies defenestrated the Birmingham Barons, 9-5.

Starting pitcher Marco Carrillo put the Smokies behind early. Carrillo pitched three innings and allowed four runs on six hits, including a three-run home run. Carrillo walked two and struck out three.

Carrillo was relieved by David Cales, who threw three shutout innings and improved his record to 4-0 already. Cales allowed two hits and a walk while striking out one.

Alex Maestri pitched the final two innings to collect his first save of the year. Maestri allowed one run on a walk but no hits. Maestri struck out one.

Tony Thomas played right field tonight, probably to get his bat into the lineup. It was a good thing too as Thomas went 3 for 4 with a double and a walk. He hit three RBI and scored two runs. Second baseman Ryan Flaherty was almost as good, going 3 for 5 with a double and three RBI. Flaherty scored once.

Center fielder Tony Campana and first baseman Blake Lalli were both 2 for 4 with a double, a walk and a run scored, but only Campana was able to steal a base.
