JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 8-28-13

Omaha Storm Chasers 2 @ Iowa Cubs 5

Mike Olt went 1-2 with 2 walks. 

Kyle Hendricks continues to be damn impressive this year. He went 8 innings, allowing 6 hits and 2 runs. He walked 1 and struck out 4. His K% hovers around 20%, even with the promotion to Iowa, and the only real difference is a slight increase in HR/9, which SSS aside is expected with the increased level of competition (and it's still low). 

Dunedin Blue Jays 2 @ Daytona Cubs 6 (7 innings)

I'm trying to think of a clever name for a HR from Kris Bryant. So far I've got a giant from Bryant, a Kris Krush, and a Bryant Bash. These are all terrible so please help me out. In any case, he hit another bomb in this one, along with another notch in the Geiger Counter. Ben Carhart had a pair of hits as well. Pin-Chieh Chen had a nice game, with a single to go with a pair of walks.

C.J. Edwards had a rough go of it, and I'm slightly concerned about his inability to go more than 4 and change innings. He allowed 2 runs on 5 hits and a walk, though he of course still fanned 5. Kyler Burke finished the 7-inning affair with 2.2 spotless innings of his own.

Dunedin Blue Jays 0 @ Daytona Cubs 3 (7 innings)

Dan Vogelbach had 2 walks and went 0-1; Bryant just went 0-3. Wes Darvill was the sound and the fury, with a double and two singles accounting for 2 of the runs the Cubs scored (Bryant was the other). Bijan Rademacher had a pair of RBIs, with a walk and a single.

Yao–Lin Wang took the start and allowed a single hit in 4 innings. Ryan Searle allowed the same in 3 innings for a really nice performance.

Kane County Cougars 9 @ Cedar Rapids Kernels 1

Jeimer Candelario belted a home run and a double in this one. Reggie Golden didn't get a hit in this one, but everyone else had exactly one (besides Candelario). Carlos Escobar's one hit was a big fly as well.

Scott Baker was the blade in his rehab start. He allowed one hit over 5 innings, walking none and fanning 2. Jose Arias was wild, walking 6 in his 2.2 innings. Stephen Perakslis pitched the remaining 1.1 without incident.

Salem-Keizer Volcanoes 6 @ Boise Hawks 10

#4 (Jacob Rogers), #5 (Yasiel Balaguert), and #6 (Justin Marra) each went deep in this one. Jacob and Yasiel's were back-to-back. Marra added a double, Rogers a pair of singles. Kevin Encarncion had a real nice night, going 4-5. David Bote had a pair of walks. Carlos Penalver doubled and walked.
