Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs were silenced by the Nashville Sounds (Brewers), 3-1.

Starter Kyle Hendricks didn't pitch poorly, but he took the loss after he allowed three runs on five hits over 5.2 innings. Hendricks struck out eight and walked only two.

Iowa had three hits tonight. The only run scored in the eighth inning when pinch-hitter Lars Anderson singled home Brett Jackson, who walked. Jackson came off the DL tonight and went 0 for 2 with a walk.

Tennessee Smokies

It's six in a row for the Tennessee Smokies as they blinded the Chattanooga Lookouts (Dodgers), 8-4.

Starter Pierce Johnson had a much better start tonight than he did last time out and because of that, he picked up his first win of the season. Johnson pitched six innings and allowed two runs on five hits. He struck out five and walked two.

Third baseman Kris Bryant had his best night of the season with four hits in five at-bats, including his sixth home run. The home run came with a man on in the fourth inning. Bryant scored twice and just had the two RBI.

Catcher Charles Cutler went 3 for 5 with a double and four RBI. He scored twice as well.

Center fielder Rubi Silva was 2 for 5 with an RBI.

Daytona Cubs

It is really too early in the season for Daytona to be having this many rainouts. Their doubleheader was rained out again.

Kane County Cougars

The Cougars got back on the winning track by buzzing the Burlington Bees (Angels), 4-2.

Jen-Ho Tseng improved his record to 3-0 tonight. He pitched six innings and surrendered two runs on eight hits. He struck out six and didn't walk anyone.

Zach Godley got his sixth save and still hasn't allowed a run since April 5. But this time, he had to work for it. After getting the final out of the eighth inning, Godley loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth with two outs after a bunt single, a walk and a single. But he ended the game with a line out to the right fielder. Godley pitched 1.1 innings and he struck out three.

First baseman Jacob Rogers had two doubles in a 2 for 4 game. He scored two times, one for each double.

Catcher Cael Brockmeyer came off the DL and went 2 for 4 with a double and two RBI. Left fielder Shawon Dunston went 2 for 3 with an RBI and a stolen base.
