JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 5-28-13

Iowa Cubs 6 @ Nashville Sounds 2

The Sounds are 14-36. That's insane.

This is how much the Cubs hate Ian StewartJosh Vitters is back on the DL and they are giving the majority of starts at 3B to Edwin Maysonet (1-3, HR, 3 RBI). Hyde Yokids also had a home run and went 2-4. Brett Jackson and Donnie Murphy had the only other extra-base hits; each had a double.

Chris Rusin dominated, going 8 strong innings with a single earned run, with 8 strikeouts and no walks. He should still be DFA. Eduardo Sanchez allowed a run in an inning.

Tennessee Smokies 3 @ Birmingham Barons 2

Ronald Torreyes didn't get on base, but neither (technically) did Arismendy Alcantara. Alcantara had his 8th home run of the year. Christian Villanueva had a double and a triple this game. He's really come on strong lately. Ty Wright had the only walk of the game for the Smokies.

Kyle Hendricks dominated again. He allowed 2 runs in 6.2 innings, and struck out 6. Kevin Rhoderick had the hold and Frank Batista had the save. 

Tampa Yankees 4 @ Daytona Cubs 6 (11 innings)

Only thing you need to know about this game is that Javier Baez hit a walk-off 2-run HR. 

Austin Kirk had an ok-ish day. He went 5 innings and allowed 11 baserunners, so he got lucky only allowing 3 runs. Austin Reed allowed a run in 2 innings, and then Eduardo Figueroa, Larry Suarezand Frankie Del Valle allowed no runs in 4 innings.

Kane County Cougars 5 @ Quad Cities River Bandits 7 (5.5 innings)

Gioskar Amaya had a double and 2 walks. He never made an out this game. Dan Vogelbach hit a 3-run home run in the 5th to make it close. Only Oliver Zapata and Pin-Chieh Chen also had hits in this game.

Dillon Maples had a really shitty game, and Cubs Top Prospect Lendy Castillo dominated again.

VSL Cubs 5 @ VSL Rays 6 (12 innings)
