Cubs Minor League Wrap: July 21

Casey Coleman took the loss for Iowa tonight.

At least Daytona won today.

If you missed the fanpost on the subject, reports came out today that the Cubs have signed seventh round pick Trevor Gretzky. Ironically, his parent who has played at Wrigley Field before is actually his mother Janet, who had a small part in A League of Their Own.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs couldn't handle the cacophony of the Nashville Sounds (Brewers), 8-7.

Casey Coleman started and allowed six runs on eight hits over seven innings. Coleman walked two and struck out five. He was much more successful with the bat, as he went 2 for 3 with a two-run triple.

John Gaub got the loss in relief, however, Gaub pitched one inning and gave up a two-run home run in the eighth inning. He allowed two total hits, and one of the runs was unearned. He did not walk anyone and struck out two.

Shortstop Marwin Gonzalez was a perfect 3 for 3 with a double and his first home run of the season. It was a solo home run in the third inning. He also walked once. Gonzalez scored twice and had three RBI.

Catcher Welington Castillo was 2 for 5 with an RBI and a run scored. Right fielder Tyler Colvin was 2 for 4 with a triple and a walk. He had one RBI.

First baseman Bryan LaHair was 2 for 5 with a run scored. However, he made the error in the eighth inning before the home run that Gaub allowed. He was also thrown out at the plate trying to score in the ninth inning in a play in which Iowa manager Bill Dancy was ejected for arguing.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennesee Smokies were extinguished by the Carolina Mudcats (Reds), 11-6.

Ryan Searle stated and took the loss. He pitched five innings and allowed two runs on six hits. He walked two and struck out two.

The real disaster came in a nine-run sixth inning. Kevin Rhoderick got hammered for seven runs on six hits and a walk. He had one strikeout, which was the only out he recorded.

Third baseman Josh Vitters was 1 for 3 with a walk and a three-run home run in the sixth inning. It was his ninth home run this season.

Center fielder Jae-Hoon Ha was 2 for 5 with a double and a run scored. Catcher Steve Clevenger was 2 for 4 with a double and a run scored.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs excommunicated the Palm Beach Cardinals, 3-2.

Angel Guzman started and allowed two runs over his normal two inning start. He gave up three hits but did not walk anyone. He struck out one.

Casey Harman collected the win with six shutout innings of relief. Harman allowed only two hits and didn't walk anyone. He struck out five.

Frank Batista allowed two two-out singles, but the game ended when the runner on first tried to go to third base. Batista pitched one inning for his 19th save. He did not walk or strike anyone out.

Second baseman Logan Watkins kept his hitting streak alive with a solo home run in the fourth inning. It was his second home run this season. He was 1 for 4.

Shortstop Rafael Valdes was 2 for 3 with a double and a run scored.

Peoria Chiefs

The Peoria Chiefs were badly burned by the Dayton Dragons (Reds) 13-0.

Nothing to see here. Moving on.

Boise Hawks

The Boise Hawks were mauled by the Yakima Bears (Diamondbacks), 4-0.

Starter Austin Reed pitched 5.2 innings and gave up only one run on four hits, and even that scored after he left the game. Reed walked four and struck out five. He got his second loss anyway.

Second baseman Zeke DeVoss was 2 for 4 with a double and a stolen base.

AZL Cubs

Lost to the Indians, 7-4.
