Chicago Cubs Minor League Wrap: August 9

Everyone but Iowa and rookie ball won.

Larry Kave/Myrtle Beach Pelicans

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs were shut down by the Oklahoma City Dodgers, 6-0.

Jordan Pries got knocked around for five runs on eight hits over four innings. One of those hits was a home run to Yasiel Puig, who apparently recovered from his trip to the world-famous Des Moines nightlife. Pries walked two and struck out three.

Jeimer Candelario singled in the second inning. That was the only hit the I-Cubs had tonight.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennessee Smokies deep-fried the Montgomery Biscuits (Rays), 7-0.

Zach Hedges dominated the Biscuits for seven innings, allowing just four hits. He struck out six and walked just one.

Third baseman Jason Vosler hit his first Double-A home run (and third overall) with a man on in the third inning. He was 1 for 4 with a sacrifice fly.

DH Ian Happ tacked on two insurance runs with a home run in the sixth inning, his 11th of the season and fourth for Tennessee. Happ went 2 for 5.

Catcher Victor Caratini was 3 for 5 with a double and two runs scored. Left fielder Kelly Dugan went 3 for 4 with a double and one run score.

Center fielder Trey Martin was 2 for 5 with one run scored. Shortstop Carlos Penalver and second baseman Daniel Lockhart were both 2 for 4 with an RBI.

Myrtle Beach Pelicans.

The winning streak extended to ten as the Myrtle Beach Pelicans put the Salem Red Sox through the wringer, 7-4.

Jake Stinnett was very good for four innings, but he ran into trouble in the fifth and gave up three runs. He did end up collecting his eighth win anyway. The final line on Stinnett was four runs on nine hits over six innings. He struck out six and walked one.

Ryan McNeil got a 1.1 innings save, retiring all four batters he faced. He struck out two. McNeil leads the Carolina League with 18 saves.

First baseman Yasiel Balaguert added a couple of insurance runs with a two-run home run in the eighth inning. It was Balaguert's 18th home run this season. Balaguert was 2 for 3 with a walk and he scored twice.

Right fielder Jeffrey Baez went 2 for 3 with an RBI ground-rule double and a run scored.

Shortstop Bryant Flete was 2 for 4 with a double and a two-run single. DH Ian Rice was 2 for 4 with two runs scored and one run batted in.
