Cubs Minor League Wrap: June 23

Dylan Heuer

Only Iowa won, but that's who you care the most about anyway.

I should have plugged this earlier, but you can still vote for the Triple-A All-StarGame here. Let's get some Iowa Cubs in there. And hey, Mike Fontenot and Rich Hill are on the ballot.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs ionized the Albuquerque Isotopes (Dodgers), 4-3.

Dallas Beeler started and got the win. He went six innings and allowed three runs on four hits. He walked two and struck out two.

Blake Parker got his league-leading 16th save tonight with a scoreless ninth. He gave up a two-out single, but nothing else. Parker struck out two.

Kris Bryant hit his 26th home run this season and fourth for the I-Cubs with the bases empty in the fifth inning. Bryant was 1 for 2 with two walks.

His babip in Iowa is still .000.

Let's go to the videotape

Shortstop Javier Baez was 2 for 4 with a a run scored. He also stole his 14th base of the season. Also, he was caught stealing for the third time.

Second baseman Arismendy Alcantara went 2 for 4 with an RBI. Left fielder Matt Szczur was 2 for 4 and scored a run.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennessee Smokies were extinguished by the Chattanooga Lookouts (Dodgers), 7-3.

Joe Gardner was knocked around four four runs on seven hits over only 3.2 innings. Gardner walked two and struck out five. It was his first loss in a Smokies uniform.

The Smokies had four hits, all singles. Taylor Davis had a two-run pinch hit single.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs were shut out by the Tampa Yankees, 8-0.

Tayler Scott got into major trouble in the third inning, giving up six runs and retiring only one batter. Even that was a sacrifice fly. Scott allowed six runs, five earned, on five hits over 2.1 innings. He walked three and struck out one.

Center fielder Albert Almora and right fielder Pin-Chieh Chen were both 2 for 4.

Kane County Cougars

Off-day. Many of the players used the occasion to go to Wrigley Field for tonight's game.

Boise Hawks

The Boise Hawks were dumped on by the Spokane Indians (Rangers), 12-6.

Hawks starter Trevor Graham didn't make it out of the fourth inning, getting pulled allowing a walk and a single to the first two batters he faced. Both runners would come around to score when the first batter that Greyfer Eregua gave up a three-run home run.  Graham pitched 3+ innings and allowed seven runs on eight hits. He walked three, hit one batter and had two wild pitches. So it's fair to say the control wasn't there. Graham struck out two.

First baseman Danny Canela hit a solo home run to lead off the fourth inning. It was his second home run on the season. Canela was 1 for 3 with a sacrifice fly.

Left fielder Kevin Brown hit a double and a triple in a 2 for 4 evening. Brown had two RBI and scored once.

Center fielder Oliver Zapata was 2 for 4 with a double and a walk. He scored twice.

AZL Cubs

Beat the Angels, 9-6.
