Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs stopped the Memphis Redbirds (Cardinals), 9-8 in 11 innings.

Starter Duane Underwood Jr. allowed four runs on three hits over 5.2 innings. However, only one of the four runs was earned. Dewees walked three and struck out six.

Tim Collins pitched the bottom of the tenth inning and while he blew the save, he got the win when Iowa struck for four runs in the top of the eleventh. Collins gave up one unearned run on no hits and one intentional walk. He struck out one.

Dakota Mekkes gave up three runs in the bottom of the eleventh, but settled down after a two-run home run to finish the game in a non-save situation.

First baseman Jim Adduci hit a two-run home run in the second inning, his fourth of the year. Adduci was 1 for 5 with a walk and two runs scored.

Center fielder Donnie Dewees connected for his fourth home run with a man on in the fifth inning. Dewees went 1 for 5 with a walk.

Shortstop Dixon Machado was 2 for 3 with two walks and a stolen base. Machado scored twice.

Cory Abbott started and took the loss. Abbott gave up two runs on seven hits over 4.2 innings. He struck out seven and walked just one.

Lookouts pitcher Tejay Antone pitched six perfect innings against the Smokies. Roberto Caro homered off reliever Joel Kuhnel to lead off the seventh inning. That was the only hit the Smokies had in this game. Connor Myers had a walk with one out in the ninth for the only other baserunner.

Smokies pitcher Jordan Minch was ejected from this game.

Myrtle Beach Pelicans

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans had their five-game winning streak snapped by the Down East Wood Ducks (Rangers), 7-4.
