Cubs Minor League Wrap: June 9

Gratuitous Darwin Barney photo.

Not often I finish the Minor League Wrap while the Cubs are still playing. Even rarer when I do it when the Cubs are playing on the East Coast.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs were trailing Round Rock, 8-1 in the fourth inning, when the game was suspended by rain. They will finish the game tomorrow and play a seven inning second game after that.

Tennessee Smokies

The Smokies filleted the Carolina Mudcats, 9-3.

Starter Brooks Raley pitched 6.2 innings and allowed three runs on seven hits. One of the three runs was unearned. Raley walked one and struck out four. His record on the season improved to 3-5.

The Smokies clubbed three home runs tonight. The first was a two-run home run by first baseman Blake Lalli in the top of the first inning. It was his seventh home run this year. Lalli was 2 for 5 with three RBI tonight. He scored twice.

Shortstop Junior Lake hit a solo homer in the third inning, his first this season for Tennessee. Lake was 2 for 4 with a walk. He scored three times.

The final home run was cranked by third baseman Josh Vitters, a solo home run in the sixth inning. Vitters has six homers this year. Vitters went 2 for 4 with a double and a sac fly.

Second baseman Ryan Flaherty was 2 for 4 with two doubles and a walk. Flaherty scored once and had one RBI. Catcher Steve Clevenger went 2 for 4 with a triple. He scored once.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs lost to the Lakeland Flying Tigers, 4-3 in 11 innings.

Starting pitcher Zachary Rosscup pitched the first 3.2 innings without allowing a run on two hits. Rosscup walked one and struck out six.

Frank Batista blew his third save of the year when he allowed two runs in the ninth inning. He pitched two innings total and allowed three hits and a walk. One of the two runs was unearned. Batista fanned two.

Brett Ebinger took the loss in relief when he allowed a solo home run in the top of the 11th. Ebinger gave up two hits total over the one inning he pitched. He struck out two and didn't walk anyone.

Shortstop Logan Watkins was 2 for 2 with two walks. He also stole his sixth base of the year. Watkins scored twice.

Center fielder Evan Crawford went 2 for 5 with a double. He had two RBI.

Peoria Chiefs

The Chiefs lost to the West Michigan Whitecaps, 3-1 despite their pitching staff allowing only two hits on the evening.

Starting pitcher Cam Greathouse took the loss after allowing all three runs over five innings. One of the three runs was unearned. Greathouse allowed only one hit but in typical Cam fashion, he walked six and struck out three.

Shortstop Arismendy Alcantara went 2 for 4.
