Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs swept a double-header from the Round Rock Express 2-1 and 4-0

In the first game, Casey Coleman tossed a seven inning complete game. Coleman gave up a single and a double to start the game and then proceeded to retire the next 21 batters in a row. Coleman struck out eight.

Second baseman BoIbby Scales hit a solo home run, his second of the year. Scales was 1 for 1 with two walks.

Shortstop Darwin Barney was 2 for 2 with a walk. He scored the other run.

In game two, Jeff Samardzija started and improved his record in AAA to 5-0 with five shutout innings. Samardzija allowed three hits. He walked two and struck out six.

First baseman Micah Hoffpauir was 3 for 3 with a two-run home run. Hoffpauir now has seven home runs this year. He had three RBI total.

Second baseman Matt Camp was 3 for 3.

Darwin Barney was 2 for 3 with a double and a run scored in game two. He's starting to convince me.

Tennessee Smokies

Traveling to Mobile for a five-game series to end the first half. Their magic number is three.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs declawed the Lakeland Flying Tigers, 5-4.

Chris Archer picked up the win. Archer pitched 5.1 innings and allowed four runs on eight hits. One of those runs was unearned. That doesn't sound too good, but what does sound good is that Archer fanned 10 and didn't walk anyone.

Mike Perconte worked a two-inning save without allowing a hit. He did walk one and struck out two.

Center fielder Brett Jackson followed up his cycle by going 2 for 5 with an RBI and a stolen base. Right fielder Kyler Burke was 2 for 4 with two runs scored. Catcher Michael Brenley was 2 for 4 with two RBI.

Peoria Chiefs

The Chiefs were stung by the Burlington Bees, 2-0.

Starter Nick Struck had one of his best starts of the year, but still saw his record fall to 2-7. Struck allowed only one run on four hits over his five inning start. He walked two and struck out one.

Matt Cerda and Greg Rohan were both 1 for 4 with a double.
