Cubs Minor League Wrap: August 15

Please check out thei signing thread to see what great players are going to be joining the Cubs system. The Ricketts family really busted out the checkbook for this draft, and I expect that in a couple of seasons, we're really going to see the benefits. This is something the Cubs should have been doing for a while, but better now than never.

Again, thank all of you for understanding my internet problems. I've about had it with AT&T. But you guys are all doing a great job on your own.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs were stunned by the Tacoma Raniers, 3-2.

Nick Struck had a quality start, going six innings and only allowing one run on a sixth inning solo home run. He allowed five total hits. He walked three and struck out three.

John Gaub blew the save in the ninth inning to take his third loss. He allowed an inherited runner to score and one unearned run of his own over a third of an inning. He gave up one hit and walked one.

DJ LeMahieu went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in the fifth inning. It was his second home run for the I-Cubs. LeMahieu also walked once.
