Minor League Wrap: April 15

Or more accurately: Daytona Cubs Wrap.

Normally this would be the Minor League Wrap, and all four teams were scheduled to play today. But the storm front that's hit the eastern half of the United States wrecked havoc on the schedule.

I put in a poll about whose start makes you most optimistic. We need to talk about good things tonight.

Iowa Cubs

Rained out. Scheduled double-header on June 22

Tennessee Smokies

Rained out. Double-header on Sunday.

Peoria Chiefs

Rained out. Double-header on Sunday.

I used to make up funny things that the team would do on a rain delay, just to have something to say. But thanks to the magic of Twitter, I know what the Chiefs did tonight. They spent the evening at the Hooters in Appleton. Not as interesting as something I could make up, I admit.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs lost a dogfight to the Lakeland Flying Tigers, 4-3.

Brett Wallach got in trouble in the first inning and the fifth inning and picked up his first loss of the season. Wallach went 4.1 innings and allowed four runs on three hits, including a home run. The big problem was that he walked six and hit two batters. Wallach also struck out two.

The D-Cubs battled all game and had runners on first and third with no outs and the bases loaded with one out in the ninth inning and failed to score.

Center fielder Jae-Hoon Ha was 3 for 5 with a double and a triple. He also scored a run.

Welington Castillo caught tonight and was 2 for 3 with an RBI. Castillo has about four more days in Daytona before he'll be promoted to Iowa.
