Center fielder Zeke DeVoss was 2 for 6 with a double. He scored once and had one RBI. Shortstop Marco Hernandez was 2 for 5 and scored twice.

Kane County Cougars

This probably won't surprise many of you, but they were rained out. Doubleheader tomorrow.

Boise Hawks

The Boise Hawks lost to the Spokane Indians (Rangers) 3-2.

Trevor Clifton started and was pretty effective, allowing one run on three hits over 4.1 innings. Clifton struck out seven and walked two.

David Garner gave up two runs in the bottom of the eighth to blow the lead and take the loss. Garner pitched two innings and allowed the two runs on three hits. One of the two runs was unearned. He struck out three and didn't walk anyone.

Varonex Cuevas hit a solo home run in the top of the third inning to tie the score at one apiece. Cuevas was 2 for 3 with a walk.

20th round pick Alex Tomasovich made his professional debut and went 2 for 4 with a double.

Arizona Cubs

Lost to the Diamondbacks, 10-9.

For those who don't know, I generally do not give a recap of Arizona Summer League games. Instead, I just mention anything that might be of interest.

Tonight, Jorge Soler played DH and was 3 for 5 with two doubles. You may say "big deal, he clobbered some kid fresh out of high school." but one of the doubles was off of Archie Bradley, who started this game for the DBacks.
