The Cubs put Nico Hoerner on the 7-day injured list today, retroactive to Wednesday. The Cubs insist that it’s merely a precaution and that he’ll be back quickly.

A snow-shortened schedule today.

Iowa Cubs

Postponed. Doubleheader tomorrow.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennessee Smokies were dunked in cocktail sauce by the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (Marlins), 6-3.

Starter Thomas Hatch pitched well, but was a victim of non-support. Hatch allowed two runs on four hits over six innings. Hatch struck out five and walked no one, although he did hit one batter.

The Smokies had no runs and just two hits over the first eight innings before staging a ninth-inning rally. Second baseman Vimael Machin was 1 for 4 with an RBI single in the ninth. Machin also scored later in the ninth.

Third baseman Robel Garcia was 2 for 4.

Myrtle Beach Pelicans

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans were made blue by the Salem Red Sox, 7-1.

Starter Javier Assad allowed five runs on nine hits over five innings. He struck out four and walked no one, but he also hit one batter. The Red Sox also stole six bases when he was on the mound.

First baseman Luke Reynolds went 3 for 4 with a double.

Third baseman Yeiler Peguero was 2 for 3.

Shortstop Aramis Ademan was 0 for 1 with two walks. Ademan scored the lone Pelicans run.

The Pelicans record is now 7-16 on the season, which is a franchise record for losses in the month of April.

South Bend Cubs

Postponed. Doubleheader tomorrow.
