Cubs Minor League Wrap: April 27

Chung Sung-Jun

Not only did the major league team beat the Brewers in Milwaukee, the minor league system went 3-0 against Brewers farm clubs.

Iowa Cubs

Rained out in Colorado Springs. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on June 26.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennessee Smokies' pitching staff one-hit the Huntsville Stars (Brewers) on the way to a 2-1 victory.

Starter Pierce Johnson allowed only one run on one hit over four innings. OK. That's the good news. The bad news is pretty bad. Johnson had no control in this game as he walked eight batters in the four innings he pitched.  He threw 75 pitches, only 26 of which were strikes. That he only allowed one run is a bit of a miracle. Johnson struck out one, the last batter he faced. Johnson had one wild pitch.

The good news here is that the Smokies bullpen retired the next 15 hitters to close out the game. Hunter Cervenka got the win after tossing three perfect innings, striking out one. Armando Rivero fanned four in two innings as he got his third save.

First baseman Dustin Geiger broke a 1-1 tie in the 7th inning with his fifth home run of the season. Geiger was 1 for 3.

Catcher Rafael Lopez doubled to lead off the second inning and scored on a wild pitch. He was 1 for 3.

Third baseman Kris Bryant was 0 for 3 with a walk, snapping his nine-game hit streak.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs beached the Brevard County Manatees (Brewers), 2-1 when Willson Contreras plated Jeimer Candelario with a walkoff single in the bottom of the ninth.

It was a good start for Tayler Scott, who allowed only one run over six innings. Scott was touched for four hits and he issued three walks. Scott struck out four.

Michael Jensen went the rest of the way, tossing three scoreless innings, allowing only two hits. He struck out four and walked no one as he collected his first win of the season.

Third baseman Candelario had a hand in Daytona's other run, as he singled home Dan Vogelbach (who had walked and stolen a base) in the fourth inning. Candelario was 2 for 4 and he doubled with two out in the ninth before Contreras's walkoff.

Contreras was 1 for 4.

Second baseman Gioskar Amaya was 3 for 4. Right fielder Bijan Rademacher was 1 for 4, extending his hitting streak to ten games.

Kane County Cougars

The Kane County Cougars defanged the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (Brewers), 10-2. The win was the Cougars' sixth straight.

Jen-Ho Tseng improved his record to 2-0 as he also allowed only one run on one hit, this time over five innings. Tseng also had some control issues, but nowhere near Johnson's day as he "only" walked four. Tseng did strike out seven, however.

Catcher Will Remillard hit his first professional home run in the sixth inning today. It came with the bases empty. Remillard had another big day as also had a two-run double in the seventh inning as part of a 3 for 4 afternoon.

Center fielder Jacob Hannemann was 3 for 4 with four RBI and one run scored. DH Daniel Canela went 2 for 4 with a double and two runs scored.

Second baseman Danny Lockhart scored twice and knocked in one as he went 2 for 4. Third baseman Jordan Hankins was 2 for 3 with a walk and scored once.
