MLB: Chicago Cubs- Workouts Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

I spent the day with my family today. So I don’t know anything more than what’s in the box scores this time. I guess a little bit from Twitter and the game notes.

Iowa Cubs

Postponed for inclement weather.

Tennessee Smokies

The Smokies downed the Mississippi Braves, 6-3.

Duane Underwood Jr. started tonight and allowed three runs on seven hits over five innings. Underwood struck out five and walked no one.

James Pugliese pitched the bottom of the sixth inning and got the win when the Smokies scored four runs in the top of the seventh. Pugliese allowed one two out single, but nothing else. He did not have a strikeout.

Stephen Perakslis pitched a perfect ninth and got the save. He struck out one.

Center fielder Jacob Hannemann broke open the game with a three-run triple in the sixth inning. Hannemann was 1 for 3 and hit by a pitch.

Third baseman Jason Vosler hit his fifth home run with the bases empty in the top of the second. Vosler went 1 for 3 with a walk.
