Cubs Minor League Wrap: June 12

Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE

Kane County continues to be the bright spot in the Cubs system.

Tomorrow night the Boise Hawks start their season. Just so you know that, because the nightly wraps are going to appear later in the evening most nights. Iowa is on the West Coast right now anyway.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs lost to the Fresno Grizzlies (Giants), 5-2.

Starter Eric Jokisch gave up a grand slam in the fifth inning to Joe Panik, after the Grizzlies loaded the bases on two infield singles and a walk. His final line for the night was five runs on five hits over six innings. He walked four and struck out four.

First baseman Chris Valaika hit a solo home run in the sixth inning, his fifth of the season. Valaika was 1 for 4.

Left fielder Josh Vitters was 2 for 4.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennessee Smokies fell to the Mississippi Braves, 4-2.

Dae-Eun Rhee pitched the first six innings and allowed two runs on six hits. He walked three and struck out two.

Zach Cates took the loss when he allowed two unearned runs in the seventh inning, but it was his own error so he's got no one to blame but himself. Cates tossed two-thirds of an inning and walked two batters but did not allow a hit. Both outs he recorded were sacrifice bunts.

Center fielder Rubi Silva went 2 for 4 with an RBI triple. Third baseman Kris Bryant went 1 for 3 with a double and a walk. He scored both of Tennessee's runs.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs were swept in a doubleheader by the Dunedin Blue Jays5-1 and 5-2.

In game one, Tayler Scott started and took the loss. Scott pitched 4.2 innings and allowed five runs on six hits, including back-to-back solo home runs in the fifth inning. Scott walked five and struck out three.

Daytona did not have a hit in this game before Wes Darvill hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. Darvill was 1 for 1 with a walk. Willson Contreras got the only other Daytona hit in the seventh.

In game two, starter Nathan Dorris got hammered for five runs on five hits in 2.1 innings. He walked two and struck out one.

Left fielder Zeke DeVoss hit an RBI double in the sixth inning, stole third and scored on a sacrifice fly. He was 1 for 2 with a walk.

Kane County Cougars

The Kane County Cougars turned the hoses on the Peoria Chiefs (Cardinals), 4-1.

Juan Paniagua was on his game tonight as he threw six scoreless innings and allowed only three hits. He struck out six and walked one as he improved his record to 3-3.

James Pugliese struck out the side in the ninth for his second save.

Second baseman Danny Lockhart was 2 for 4 with an RBI. Center fielder Trey Martin was 2 for 4 with a run scored. He also stole a base. And left fielder Shawon Dunston was 2 for 4 with an RBI and a run scored.

The win over Peoria puts the Chiefs two games out of a playoff spot with three games to play in the first half.
