Cubs Minor League Wrap: June 13

So I was at my daughter's music recital tonight. Did I miss anything at the Cubs game? (Actually, I did get back to see the final two innings.)

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs shut out the Memphis Redbirds, 4-0.

J.R. Mathes evened his record on the year to 5-5 with six innings of one hit ball. He walked one and struck out four. He did hit one batter as well.

Center fielder Sam Fuld was 2 for 4 with a double and a walk. First baseman Micah Hoffpauir was 2 for 5 with a double. He scored once and knocked two in.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennessee Smokies blacked out the West Tennessee Diamond Jaxx, 7-5.

Starter Chris Carpenter pitched six innings and allowed two runs, both on a two-run homer. He surrendered four hits. He walked three and struck out five.

Ryan Buchter got the win, although he didn't pitch well. Buchter allowed two runs on three hits over 1.1 innings. He walked one and struck out two.

Luke Sommer pitched an inning and didn't allow a baserunnner. He struck out two for his second save.

Second baseman Tony Thomas was the hero tonight with a seventh inning grand slam that gave the Smokies the lead. Thomas also hit a triple in a 2 for 3 game. Thomas had five total RBI and scored twice.

Third baseman Josh Vitters was 1 for 2 with a walk and two runs scored. I know people like to hear about it when Josh draws a walk.

The Smokies now lead West Tennessee by 1.5 games with six to play in the first half. They play each other one more time tomorrow before the Smokies finish the first half at Mobile.

Daytona Cubs

Finishing up the All-Star Break. It's too bad there's nothing for young men to do on a summer day off in Daytona Beach.

Peoria Chiefs

The Peoria Chiefs were swamped by the Great Lakes Loons, 7-0.

Starter Jeffry Antigua gave up four runs on seven hits over five innings. He didn't walk anyone and struck out three.

No Chief hitter had more than one hit or an extra base hit.
