Center fielder Brett Jackson was 2 for 4 with an RBI.
Stopped off in Nashville to see the I-Cubs play on their way to Montgomery. Maybe not the best idea.
The Daytona Cubs topped the St. Lucie Mets, 5-3.
Angel Guzman pitched his regular two innings tonight and was good, allowing only one hit and no runs. He didn't walk anyone and struck out three.

Austin Kirk rebounded from his last start with a solid 5.1 innings tonight. He allowed one run on four hits. He walked two and struck out five.
Patrick Francescon got the loss after the Chiefs took a 3-1 lead in the top of the ninth. After getting the first two batters to fly out, he allowed a double and then a two-run home run to tie the game. The next two batters singled and then walked. He then threw a pitch into the dirt which got away from catcher Micah Gibbs. Gibbs recovered in time to throw the ball to third to try to catch the runner advancing from second, but Gibbs threw the ball into left field. Ballgame.

The Boise Hawks lost to the Spokane Indians (Rangers), 8-2.
