Cubs Minor League Wrap: June 16

Edwin Maysonet - USA TODAY Sports

We've learned one of two things so far about Boise. Either they have very good pitching or Eugene has very poor hitting. Or both. Kane County finishes up the first half with a win and Iowa has their three game win streak snapped

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs were all wet against the Omaha Storm Chasers (Royals), 3-1.

Starter Guillermo Moscoso took the loss after he allowed three runs on five hits over five innings. Moscoso walked one and struck out four.

First baseman Edwin Maysonet gave Iowa an early 1-0 lead with a home run in the bottom of the first inning. Of course, that would be all Iowa would get all day. It was Maysonet's sixth home run. He was 1 for 3.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennessee Smokies were extinguished by the Mississippi Braves, 4-1.

It was a good start for A.J. Morris, who pitched four shutout innings. Morris allowed only one hit. He walked three and struck out five.

Hunter Cervenka allowed three runs in the eighth inning and took the loss. He pitched two innings and surrendered three hits. He walked one and struck out one.

Right fielder Rubi Silva went 3 for 4 with a double. He scored one run. Third baseman Christian Villanueva was 2 for 4.

Daytona Cubs

Still on All-star Break.

Kane County Cougars

The Kane County Cougars skinned the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (Brewers), 4-2.

Another strong start by Pierce Johnson, who tossed seven shutout innings. Johnson gave up four hits and he walked three. Johnson struck out five.

Stephen Perakslis pitched the ninth and got his second save. He did allow a one out single and a walk to bring the go-ahead run to the plate, but retired the final two batters to end the game. He had one strikeout.

Left fielder Reggie Golden scored the first run when he hit a solo home run in the third inning. It was his second home run of the year. Golden also tripled in a 2 for 3 game.

First baseman Rock Shoulders then hit a solo home run in the fourth inning, his 13th this year. Shoulders was 2 for 4.

Catcher Carlos Escobar was 2 for 3 with a double. He scored one run and had one batted in.

Kane County finished the first half at 30-36.

Boise Hawks

The Boise Hawks pulverized the Eugene Emeralds (Padres), 8-2.

Starting pitcher Loiger Padron threw 4.2 innings without allowing a run. He gave up three hits and issued three walks. Padron struck out three.

So far, the Hawks starting rotation has not allowed a run over 14.2 innings.

Michael Hamann got the Hawks out of a runners on second and third, one out, situation in the eighth inning without any runs scoring, and then stayed in the game to pitch the ninth for his first save. Hamman walked one batter and struck out two over his 1.2 innings.

Right fielder Yasiel Balaguert was 2 for 4 with a triple and four RBI. He also walked once and scored once.

Center fielder Kevin Encarnacion was 2 for 3 with two walks. Encarnacion scored twice.
