Very light night tonight. I need it after yesterday.
I'm hearing that Cubs first round pick Brett Jackson may sign quickly.
Apparently the Royals are traveling from Omaha to Des Moines by horse-drawn buggy, because Iowa got an off-day. Omaha had two off-days.
Hate to have an off-day because they've won five in row, but at least they are busing to Mobile.
The Daytona Cubs blanked the Jupiter Hammerheads, 2-0.
Rafael Dolis started and picked up the win to improve his record to 2-3. Dolis gave up five hits and a walk in five innings. He struck out three.
David Cales got his seventh save with a perfect ninth. Cales got one strikeout.
Second baseman Nate Samson was 2 for 3 with a walk and a run scored.
Despite two Rebel Ridling home runs, the Chiefs were cut down by the Clinton Lumber Kings, 5-3.
Chris Carpenter was solid tonight. He allowed three runs on five hits in six innings. One of the runs was unearned. Carpenter walked three and struck out one. (And no, I don't know how to not link his name to the Cardinals pitcher without either misspelling it or doing all the links manually, which I don't want to do.)
Kevin Kreier got the loss. He gave up two runs on four hits over two innings. One of the hits was a solo home run.
First baseman Ridling hit two home runs tonight to up his season total to eight. Ridling was 2 for 4 with all three Chief RBIs.
Second baseman David Macias was 2 for 4. Left fielder Drew Rundle went 2 for 3.
