Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs were shut out by the New Orleans Zephyrs (Marlins), 2-0 in a game that ended in the seventh inning because of rain.

It was a short complete game loss for Donn Roach, who allowed two runs on seven hits over 6.1 innings. Roach walked one and did not strike anyone out.

Iowa only had two hits. Catcher Kyle Schwarber was 1 for 2 with a walk.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennessee Smokies were extinguished by the Birmingham Barons (White Sox),  9-4.

Starter Ivan Pineyro gave up two runs in the first and a grand slam in the third inning and that was pretty much all the Barons needed. Pineyro pitched five innings and allowed six runs on six hits. He walked four and struck out four.

Catcher Cael Brockmeyer hit his first Double-A home run in his first Double-A game. It came in the fourth inning with the bases empty. Brockmeyer was 1 for 4.

Center fielder Jacob Hannemann was 2 for 5 with a triple.

Myrtle Beach Pelicans

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans disinfected the Carolina Mudcats (Braves), 12-0 in a game that ended after 7 1/2 innings because of rain.

It was a shortened complete game shutout for Daury Torrez, who threw all seven innings and allowed just three hits. He struck out six and walked no one.

Catcher Victor Caratini capped off the scoring with a three-run home run in the top of the eighth. It was his third home run of the year. Caratini went 2 for 3 with two walks and two runs scored.

Right fielder Mark Zagunis hit a three-run double in the second inning that put the Pelicans up big. Zagunis was 1 for 4 with a walk and two runs scored.

Third baseman Jeimer Candelario was 2 for 4 with a double and a walk. Candelario scored two runs. Second baseman Daniel Lockhart went 2 for 4 with one RBI and one run scored.

South Bend Cubs

The South Bend Cubs were run over by the Bowling Green Hot Rods (Rays), 9-4.

Tommy Thorpe started and took the loss. Thorpe allowed four runs on six hits in four innings. He walked four and struck out two.

First baseman Jason Vosler hit a solo home run in the ninth inning, his third of the season. Vosler was 2 for 4 and also doubled. He scored twice.

Eugene Emeralds

The Eugene Emeralds shut out the Vancouver Canadians (Blue Jays), 6-0.

Ryan Kellogg pitched two innings in his first professional start (he had one relief appearance previously) and gave up just one hit. He had one strikeout and didn't walk anyone.

Adbert Azolay got the win because Kellogg didn't go five. But Azolay deserved it as he tossed four innings without allowing a hit. He did walk one and he struck out four.

DH Justin Marra hit a three-run home run in the fifth inning, his first of the season. Marra went 2 for 5.

Left fielder Donnie Dewees was 2 for 4 with a double and a walk. He scored one run and drove in another.

Third baseman Blake Headley went 2 for 3 with a walk and a run scored.
