JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 6-24-13

Iowa Cubs 6 @ Memphis Redbirds 1

I'm just tired of writing about the Iowa Cubs. They don't have anyone on their team (they promoted Jae-Hoon Ha but he didn't play. Junior Lake walked once and struck out once. Logan Watkins went 1-5 with an RBI. Brooks Raley went 7 shutout innings. No one cares about the rest.

Jackson Generals 1 @ Tennessee Smokies 5 

Half of the hits the Smokies had were from Justin Bour, who hit a pair of home runs for 4 RBI. The other hits were a single from Matt Szczur and a big fly from Elliot Soto

Alberto Cabrera gave up a solo home run, 2 other hits, and 2 other walks in 8 innings. He allowed just the one run and struck out 13. He embarassed Jackson out there. Zach Rosscup cleaned it up in the ninth.

Lakeland Flying Tigers 5 @ Daytona Cubs 6 (12 innings)

Javier Baez walked again! He also struck out once. He did turn 3 double plays successfully, so there's that. John Andreoli continued to have a nice year with a double, single, and walk. Zeke DeVoss had a double as well with two walks. Tim Saunders had 2 walks and a double and a single. As a team the Cubs walked 7 times and struck out 8 in 12 innings. That's pretty solid. 

It was Pierce Johnson's first start since being promoted. It went ok-ish, with 3 runs off 6 hits and 2 walks in 6 innings. He did strike out 6. Eduardo Figueroa allowed 2 runs in 3 innings, but then the Cubs had 2 and 1 scoreless performances by Frank Del Valle and Luis Liria.

Boise Hawks 3 @ Spokane Indians 5 (12 innings)

Jacob Hannemann had another strong outing. He had double doubles and a single single, for 3 RBI. Yasiel Balaguert had the loneo ther good performance, drawing 2 walks and getting a hit. I guess Carlos Penalver's 2-5, 2B performance was good too. Honestly, the Boise team isn't that impressive right now (but will be when draft picks start reporting). 

DSL Cubs 7 @ DSL Rojos 6
SL Cubs 9 @ VSL Phillies 4
SL Cubs 3 @ ASL Angels 13
