My internet was down all evening, so I missed pretty much everything tonight.
The Iowa Cubs were mute against the Nashville Sounds (Brewers), 4-1.
Dallas Beeler tossed a quality start, but he ended up saddled with the loss anyway. Beeler went seven innings and allowed three runs on five hits, including a solo home run in the sixth inning. Beeler struck out three and walked only one. He also went 2 for 2 at the plate, giving him two of Iowa's six hits.
First baseman Chris Valaika was 2 for 3.
The Tennessee Smokies were vassalized by the Birmingham Barons (White Sox), 10-5. It was Tennessee's eighth straight loss.
Dae-Eun Rhee got hammered tonight. He gave up seven runs, six of which were earned, in six innings. He surrendered nine hits and he walked one. Rhee struck out three Barons.
Third baseman Anthony Giansanti was 3 for 4 with a double. He scored once and batted one in.
First baseman Dustin Geiger went 2 for 4 with two RBI and one run scored.
Catcher Charles Cutler was 2 for 5 and scored once.
DH Kris Bryant did not hit a home run tonight. Instead, he merely went 2 for 4 with a walk and one run scored. He's obviously slumping.
The Daytona Cubs topped the St. Lucie Mets, 3-1.
Nathan Dorris had his best game as a Daytona Cub as he gave up only one run on four hits in a 6.2 inning start. Dorris struck out two and walked one.
Michael Jensen's first career save was one of adventure. He gave up a single to the first batter he faced and then struck out the next batter. Then he allowed a second baserunner on another single, but he struck out the next batter. Finally he walked the bases loaded with two outs and then struck out the next batter to end the game.
Left fielder Zeke DeVoss and catcher Chadd Krist were both 2 for 5. Krist had an RBI.
Bijan Rademacher led off the game with a single wand would come around to score on Krist's single. When he came to bat in the second inning, he was hit by a pitch. The third time he was due up in the order he was pinch hit for by Pin-Chieh Chen. Chen stayed in the game and was a perfect 2 for 2 with a walk.
Kane County Cougars
The Kane County Cougars were stopped by the Peoria Chiefs (Cardinals), 5-3.
Duane Underwood took his second loss after he allowed three runs on five hits over five innings. Two of the runs Underwood allowed were unearned, however. Underwood walked one and struck out one.
Center fielder Jacob Hannemann was 3 for 5 with a double and two RBI.
Right fielder Yasiel Balaguert and second baseman Danny Lockhart both went 2 for 4 with a double, Lockhart had an RBI.
