Light night tonight.

Iowa Cubs

Iowa was rained out tonight. Too bad, because they were going to wear their cool "Iowa Oaks" uniforms. No makeup date has been set yet.

Tennessee Smokies

Scheduled off-day, so they didn't have to worry about the weather. They head to Chattanooga tomorrow.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs were shot down by the Lakeland Flying Tigers, 7-0.

Starter Ben Wells had control issues and was lucky to escape with allowing only three runs over two innings. Wells gave up three hits, he walked four and he hit two batters. Wells struck out three.

Daytona had only two hits tonight, both singles. Neither was by Bijan Rademacher, so his hit streak comes to an end at 12.

The start of this game was delayed 51 minutes because of rain.

Kane County Cougars

The Kane County Cougars detasseled the Cedar Rapids Kernels, 2-1.

Tyler Skulina threw the first five innings and allowed one run on four hits. He struck out two and walked one.

Nathan Dorris got the win in relief after Kane County plated a run in both the sixth and seventh innings. Dorris pitched two innings and gave up two hits but no runs. He walked one and struck out two.

Zack Godley struck out five batters in a two-inning save, his fifth this season. After retiring the side in order in the eighth, he allowed a leadoff single and walk to put two on and no outs in the ninth. But then he struck out the next three batters to end the game.

Kane County took the lead in the seventh inning when Jacob Hannemann singled on a perfectly-executed suicide squeeze play, scoring Danny Lockhart. Hannemann tripled to lead off the sixth inning and scored the other Cougars' run. Hannemann went 3 for 4 with a double and a triple.

Catcher Will Remillard was 3 for 4. First baseman Jacob Rogers went 2 for 4.
