Cubs Minor League Wrap: June 12

Man, I'm glad I couldn't have watched today's game even if I wanted to.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs were pecked by the Memphis Redbirds, 6-2.

Starter Jay Jackson took the loss, although he didn't pitch poorly. He went seven innings and allowed only two hits, but one of those hits was a three-run home run. Jackson walked three and struck out three.

John Grabow had a bad rehab appearance though. He gave up the other three runs on four hits in the one inning he threw.

Catcher Chris Robinson went 3 for 4 with a solo home run, his second of the year.

Shortstop Darwin Barney went 3 for 4 with a double and a walk. Second baseman Matt Camp was 2 for 4 with an RBI.

Tennessee Smokies

The Smokies got claim-jumped by the West Tennessee Diamond Jaxx, 7-5.

Craig Muschko gave up three home runs tonight in his 6.1 inning start. That led to him surrendering all seven runs on seven hits, although two of the runs were unearned. Muschko walked two and struck out three.

DH Blake Lalli went 3 for 5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored. Second baseman Tony Thomas went 2 for 4 with two RBI. Both Tony Campana and Matt Spencer were 2 for 4.

The Smokies lead in the division dropped to .5 games over West Tenn. They will play again Sunday and Monday.

Daytona Cubs

The South All-Stars beat the North All-Stars 5-4 in ten innings. Daytona is in the North Division.

Two D-Cub pitchers took the mound tonight. The first, Rafael Dolis, threw a scoreless inning, allowing only one hit. He did not have a strikeout. The other, Aaron Shafer, had a tougher time. He allowed four hits, including a two-run home run, in the inning he pitched. He also did not have a strikeout.

Brett Jackson started in center field and had two at-bats. He reached on an error and had an RBI single.

Peoria Chiefs

The Chiefs locked up the Great Lakes Loons, 6-3.

Ryan Searle started and got the win with five shutout innings of work. He allowed just two hits. He walked one and struck out five.

Yohan Gonzalez entered the game with the tying run on in the eighth, but got out of the jam and went on to collect his second save. Gonzalez went 1.1 innings and allowed one hit. He did not have a strikeout.

First baseman Justin Bour hit a three-run home run, his fifth of the season. Bour went 1 for 3 with a sac fly, so he had four RBI total.
