Cubs Minor League Wrap--April 10

It looks like almost all of you are pretty happy with Andrew Cashner right now. And guess which Cubs broadcaster is going to be insufferably happy tomorrow?

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs record fell to 0-3 as they were silenced by the Nashville Sounds, 2-1 in ten innings.

Starter Thomas Diamond put in a good five innings tonight. He allowed only one run on four hits and a walk. Diamond struck out five.

Both Brian Schlitter and Jeff Gray threw two shutout innings of relief.

Mitch Atkins pitched the tenth inning and gave up the winning run. He allowed two hits, walked one and hit one batter in the one inning he pitched. Atkins did strike out one.

Center fielder James Adduci was 2 for 5 with a double.

Tennessee Smokies

The Smokies are steaming hot as they improved their record to 3-0 by scaring the Mississippi Braves, 7-3.

Starter Austin Bibens-Dirkx went five innings tonight. He allowed two runs on six hits. He walked one and struck out six.

David Cales got the win in relief. He pitched two innings and gave up one run on three hits. He struck out three Braves and didn't walk anyone.

Marcos Mateo picked up the save. One batter reached on an error, but Mateo was otherwise perfect over 1.2 innings. He struck out two.

Shortstop Starlin Castro continued his hot start. He went 3 for 4 with a triple and a walk. Castro scored twice and knocked one in. He also stole a base.

Left fielder Ty Wright was even better than Castro tonight. Wright was 4 for 5 with a double and a home run. Wright scored twice and had three RBI. Brandon Guyer was 2 for 5 with a triple and a run scored. Second baseman Tony Thomas was 0 for 2, but walked three times.

Daytona Cubs

A walk-off home run by catcher Michael Brenly gave the D-Cubs a 7-4 victory over the Brevard County Manatees in 12 innings. It was Daytona's first win of the year.

Alberto Cabrera started and threw six shutout innings. He gave up only two hits. He didn't walk anyone and struck out two.

Aaron Shafer threw a perfect inning of relief to get the win. He struck out one.

Brenly was the big hero tonight, as his three-run home run sent the Daytona faithful home happy. Brenly was 1 for 5 on the night with a walk. He scored twice.

Right fielder Kyler Burke was 2 for 6 and scored once. First baseman Marwin Gonzalez was 2 for 4 with an RBI and a run scored.

Peoria Chiefs

The Chiefs were chainsawed by the Clinton LumberKings, 8-2.

Starter Jonathan Nagel gave up three runs on six hits over three innings. The good news was that he struck out six in those three innings and didn't walk anyone.

First baseman Justin Bour was 2 for 4.
