Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs couldn't be heard over the Nashville Sounds (Brewers), 5-1.

Eric Jokisch started and took the loss. Jokisch allowed four runs, three earned, on nine hits over six innings. Jokisch struck out four and didn't walk anyone.

Iowa's only run came on left fielder Josh Vitters' third home run in the fifth inning. Vitters was 1 for 3 with a walk.

Third baseman Christian Villanueva was 2 for 4 with a double.

Javier Baez is not liking Nashville very much. So far, he's 0 for 12 with 8 strikeouts in Music City.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennessee Smokies' six-game winning streak was snapped by a 6-4 loss to the Chattanooga Lookouts (Dodgers).

Corey Black had a rough time finding the plate today. Black pitched five innings and allowed six runs, five of which were earned. He surrendered four hits but issued five walks. Black struck out four.

Center fielder Jae-Hoon Ha was 2 for 4 with two runs scored. Catcher Rafael Lopez went 1 for 2 with two walks and a two-run single in the eighth inning.

Daytona Cubs

Jeimer Candelario hit a walkoff home run in the bottom of the 12 to give the Daytona Cubs a 2-1 win over the Lakeland Flying Tigers.

Starter Felix Pena had a great start, allowing only one hit over six shutout innings. Pena struck out three and walked one.

Stephen Perakslis got the win after tossing the final three innings without allowing a run. Perakslis allowed two hits, but no walks. He struck out three.

Daytona scored one run in the first inning, one run in the twelfth and a whole lot of nothing in the middle. Second baseman Gioskar Amaya led off the bottom of the first with a double and Candelario ended it with a home run. The Cubs had two hits in the ten innings between those two events.

It was Candelario's third home run this season. He was 1 for 5. Amaya was also 1 for 5.

Center fielder Albert Almora was 0 for 2 with a sac fly in the first inning, scoring Amaya. But in the fourth inning, he drew his first walk of the season.

It was an easy win for starter Paul Blackburn, who was spotted seven runs in the bottom of the first inning by the Cougars offense. Blackburn pitched six innings and allowed three runs on six hits. He struck out six and walked one.

It was another two scoreless innings of relief for Gerardo Concepcion, allowing only one hit. He struck out three.

After the Cougars fell behind 1-0, center fielder Jacob Hannemann led off the bottom of the first inning and tied it up with his second home of the year. Hannemann was 1 for 5 with a walk.
