Cubs Minor League Wrap: August 17

Slow night tonight.

In the comments from yesterday's Wrap, there is a discussion about who did and who did not sign. Seventh round pick Ben Wells and ninth round pick Kevin Rhoderick signed at the last minute. SIxth rounder Ivan DeJesus (no relation to our first base coach) was the only top ten pick not to sign, which was expected. Overall, the Cubs signed 29 of their 50 picks and 21 of the first 25.

Tennessee and Peoria were traveling tonight.

Iowa Cubs

A ninth-inning rally came up short as the I-Cubs fell to the Sacramento River Cats, 5-4.

Starting pitcher Jay Jackson went 5.2 innings and gave up four runs on seven hits. One of the runs was unearned. He walked two and struck out five. I will add that all the earned runs came in the sixth inning and that Jackson was cruising before that.

Third baseman Marquez Smith hit his 11th I-Cub home run in the fourth inning tonight. It was also his seventh home run in the past ten games. Smith hit his home run with a man on and was 2 for 4 tonight with the two RBI.

Right fielder Micah Hoffpauir went 2 for 4 with an RBI.

The I-Cubs had the bases-loaded in the top of the ninth tonight with only one out, but James Adduci and Brad Snyder struck out to end the game.

Daytona Cubs

Rained out. The game will not be made up.

Boise Hawks

The Boise Hawks were drenched by the Everett Aqua Sox, 7-1.

Starter Matthew Loosen took the loss, giving up two runs on five hits over four innings. He walked one and struck out three.

Catcher Micah Gibbs went 2 for 3 with a double. First baseman Richard Jones went 2 for 3 with a walk.

AZL Cubs

Rained out as well
