JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 7-18-13

Iowa Cubs 6 @ Round Rock Express 3

Logan Watkins scored 2 runs on a single and a HBP. No walk today. Donnie Murphy had a big day, going 2-4 with a double and a home run. Ty Wright also had a double, as did Edgar "Who?" Gonzalez. On the Texas side (since Garza is probably maybe going there), prospects that might just come with us Leury Garcia and Mike Olt went 2-3, 2B, BB and 0-3, BB, 3 SO, respectively. 

Guillermo Moscoso had another meh outing, allowing 3 in 5 with 3 walks, 5 hits, and 5 K's. Marcus Hatley, Yoanner Negrin, Eduardo Sanchezand Brian Schlitter each pitched 1 inning and allowed no runs, striking out at least 2 each. The bullpen was dominant: 4 IP, 1 H, 0 BB, 10 SO. 

Jacksonville Suns 7 @ Tennessee Smokies 6

Javier Baez had a golden sombrero: 0-4, BB, 4 SO. not so good. Matt Szczur went 1-5, and Arismendy Alcantara shared Baez' line minus 3 SO. Justin Bour had a pair of singles, and Rubi Silva had 2 RBIs and a triple. Rafael Lopez hit a home run and walked once, so that's good. The team was 2-13 with RISP. Born ready.

Eric Jokisch had exactly Guillermo Moscoso's line, except he added one strikeout. The big damage was 4 runs allowed by P.J. Francescon, who has been pretty bad all year. 

Great Lakes Loons 3 @ Kane County Cougars 2

Quiet bats for the Cougars. Albert Almora went 0-4 with a K. Gioskar Amaya had a triple and a strikeout. Dan Vogelbach went 2-4. He's lost almost 200 points in SLG this year. I'm getting slightly worried I was wrong about him. Giuseppe Papaccio was 0-2, but made up for it with 2 walks and an awesome name. Jeimer Candelario was 0-3 with a walk and his 20th error.

Jose Rosario went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs. He took the loss. Sheldon McDonald gave up a run in 2 innings, and Stephen Perakslis went 2 innings of scoreless pitching.

DSL Osos 11 @ DSL Hermanos Del Ciudad Uno 5

AZL Cubs 3 @ AZL Royals 2

Josh Vitters played in left? He went 0-3 and walked.
