Cubs Minor League Wrap: May 12

Dylan Heuer

Javier Baez had the game-winning hit for Iowa. That was the only win in the system today.

Iowa Cubs

Javier Baez singled home Matt Szczur in the bottom of the tenth inning as the Iowa Cubs silenced the Nashville Sounds, 2-1 in ten innings.

Starter Tsuyoshi Wada gave up a solo home run to Jeremy Hermida in the second, but that was the only run he allowed over seven strong innings. Wada allowed six hits and he walked three. Wada fanned eight.

Marcus Hatley tossed two perfect innings in relief of Wada, striking out four.

Eduardo Figueroa pitched a perfect top of the tenth to get his first win this season. He struck out four.

Wada was doing his best Jeff Samardzija impersonation right down to being in line for the loss until first baseman Lars Anderson hit a solo home run to lead off the bottom of the ninth to tie the game at 1-1. It was Anderson's second home run this season. He was 1 for 3 with a walk on the evening.

Both Baez and Szczur were 1 for 5. Baez's single was on the eighth pitch of the at bat.

Iowa wore their throwback "Iowa Oaks" uniforms tonight.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennessee Smokies offered an unconditional surrender to the Jackson Generals (Mariners), 8-6.

Dae-Eun Rhee started and allowed four runs on five hits over six innings. One of the four runs was unearned. Rhee walked two and struck out three.

Austin Kirk had a miserable eighth inning, surrendering four runs to Jackson and taking the loss. Kirk pitched two innings and allowed four runs on two hits, including a two-run home run. Kirk walked two and struck out three.

Center fielder Rubi Silva hit a solo home run in the second inning, his fourth of the season. Silva was 2 for 4.

Catcher Rafael Lopez hit a three-run home run in the fourth inning. It was Lopez's third on the year.  Lopez was 1 for 3 with a walk.

Shortstop Jeudy Valdez went 2 for 4 with a double and a triple. He had the other Tennessee RBI.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs got pinched by the Charlotte Stone Crabs (Rays), 11-5.

Starter Tayler Scott allowed five run on five hits, including a pair of solo home runs, over 4.2 innings.

Michael Jensen relieved Scott and took the loss after he gave up three runs in only two-thirds of an inning. And that doesn't even count the runner he inherited from Scott that scored. However, of the three runs he allowed in the sixth inning, two of them were unearned because of a Dan Vogelbach error. The leadoff hitter in the sixth reached on a wild pitch after a strikeout, which opened the gates for the three-run inning.

Jensen walked two and struck out one as he took his first loss this season.

Left fielder Bijan Rademacher went 3 for 4 with a double and a walk. He had one RBI.

Shortstop Marco Hernandez went 3 for 4 and scored a run. Catcher Willson Contreras went 2 for 3 with a walk.

Center fielder Albert Almora was 0 for 3, but he walked once and he had two outfield assists--gunning one runner out at the plate and another runner trying to stretch a double to a triple on a 8-4-5 play.

Kane County Cougars

The Kane County Cougars were caged by the Beloit Snappers (Athletics), 6-1.

Tyler Skulina started and had one bad inning, a four-run fourth. But that's all that the Snappers needed. Skulina pitched five innings and allowed four runs on five hits. He walked three and struck out seven.

The Cougars got their only run in the second inning when first baseman Ben Carhart and catcher Will Remillard hit back-to-back doubles. Both hitters were 1 for 3. Shawon Dunston Jr. also went 1 for 3, and now you know all three hits for the Cougars today.
