Cubs Minor League Wrap: April 15

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

Iowa and Tennessee both blew big leads to take a disappointing loss. Daytona kept their lead and kept pouring it on. Kane County is helpless against mother nature.

My prayers go out to those in Boston.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs led 4-0 after three innings, but the Albuquerque Isotopes (Dodgers) then exploded to defeat Iowa, 11-5.

Iowa starter Drew Carpenter fell apart in the fifth inning when he gave up back-to-back home runs to Alex Castellanos and Scott Van Slyke as part of a four-run inning. Carpenter went 4.1 innings and allowed five runs on seven hits. He walked two and struck out one.

Left fielder Ryan Sweeney got Iowa out to that 4-0 lead when he hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the third. It was Sweeney's third home run of the season. Sweeney was 2 for 4.

Both Darwin Barney and Ian Stewart played on rehab assignments and both played the entire game in the field. Barney was 4 for 5 with a double and two runs scored whereas Stewart was 0 for 4.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennessee Smokies got burned by the Huntsville Stars (Brewers), 8-7.

Dallas Beeler pitched the first six innings and allowed three runs on four hits. He walked three and struck out four.

Trey McNutt entered the game in the bottom of the eight with a four-run lead and blew the save and then the game. He allowed two inherited runners to score in the eighth inning and then two more of his own. He stayed in the game to pitch the ninth and gave up another run to take the loss. McNutt pitched 1.1 innings and gave up three runs on three hits and two walks. He did not record a strikeout.

Center fielder Rubi Silva hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning to give Tennessee a 5-1 lead. It was his second home run this year. Silva also doubled in a 3 for 4 game.

Jae-Hoon Ha was 2 for 3 with a double and two walks. Ha scored once and had one RBI. Second baseman Jonathan Mota was 2 for 4.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs sank the Clearwater Threshers (Phillies), 8-1.

Starter Ben Wells collected his first win of the year with six shutout innings. He gave up five hits and walked one while striking out four.

Center fielder Zeke DeVoss hit a two-run triple in the fourth inning. He was 2 for 4 with a walk three total RBI. He also stole a base.

Second baseman Stephen Bruno had two more hits to extend his hitting streak to nine games and to give him multi-hit games in seven of his ten games this year. Bruno was 2 for 4 with a double and a run scored.

DH Ben Carhart went 3 for 4 with a double. He scored twice and had one run batted in. Right fielder John Andreoli was 2 for 5 and scored twice. Third baseman David Bote was 2 for 3 with a double and a walk. Bote knocked two runs in and scored twice.

Kane County Cougars

Rained out in Beloit. I guess that's progress from a snow out.
