JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 7-23-13

New Orleans Zephyrs 0 @ Iowa Cubs 1

The only run in the game was scored in the bottom of the 9th. Logan Watkins went 2-4 and was the only real offense. Donnie Murphy was 1-4 and scored the only run of the game off a Edwin Maysonet (remember him?) single to send the Des Moines crowd happy. Mike Olt hasn't played yet. 

Guillermo Moscoso had probably his best game of the year. He walked 3 and allowed 1 hit in 5 innings. He struck out 9. He went 8 scoreless 2 starts ago (and allowed 1 fewer baserunner), but I'll take the 9 strikeouts over the 5. New I-Cub Henry Rodriguez allowed 2 hits but no runs. Casey Coleman went 2 scoreless to hand it over to Brian Schlitter, who rebounded nicely for his first Iowa win.

Tennessee Smokies 4 @ Huntsville Stars 6

Javier Baez hit his 5th HR in Tennessee, so he's now tied with his singles total. His line sits at .203/.242/.492. Arismendy Alcantara was 0-fer. Christian Villanueva, Rubi Silvaand John Andreoli each doubled once.

Huntsville has a 70 name-tool alert with Chadwin Stang. He went 1-3 with a walk.

Eric Jokisch was real bad, but was unlucky also. He went 6 and allowed 6 runs, but he gave up 2 HR and only had a WHIP of 1.5 in the game. We has a mite unlucky. Marcos Mateo and Frank Batista each threw a scoreless frame.

St. Lucie Mets 5 @ Daytona Cubs 3 (Game 1)

Kevin Plawecki was 1-3 with a walk for the Mets. Wes Darvill was 3-3 with a double. That's awesome. Dustin Geiger doubled. Everyone else, meh.

Zach Cates didn't get out of the first. He allowed 5 runs in 0.2 innings and it would have been worse had Austin Reed not stranded all 3 inherited runners. He pitched 4.1 awesome frames. Chang-Yong Lim pitched 2 scoreless also.

St. Lucie Mets 0 @ Daytona Cubs 7 (Game 2)

Plawecki played 1B in this game and went 0-3. Wes Darvill continued with his awesome day, going 2-3 with a double and a triple. Pin-Chieh Chen went 1-2 with a walk and a jack. 

Pierce Johnson had a fairly mediocre performance for him, but it was still 5 scoreless innings. He allowed 3 hits and 2 walks, and fanned 3. Frank of the Valley went 2 innings and allowed a single hit.

Boise Hawks 6 @ Eugene Emeralds 0

Jacob Hannemann went 2-4 with 2 runs and a walk, which was awesome. Daniel Lockhart went 1-3 with 2 walks. Kris Bryant…didn't. He went 0-5 with 5 strikeouts. Top Prospects! Jacob Rogers was 2-4 with a double and a jack and a walk. Yasiel Balaguert doubled as did David Bote.

Thank god that Dillon Maples had a nice start. 5 innings, 5 hits, no walks, 7 strikeouts, no mercy. Corbin Hoffner went 3 innings of scoreless baseball, and my main man CMP went 1 inning in which he struck out the side, than saved 3 kittens from burning trees.

DSL Osos 6 @ DSL Tigres 1
AZL Indians 2 @ AZL Cubs 7

David DeJesus went 1-3 and walked. Everyone but Garrett Schlecht and Xavier Batista had a hit.

Starling Peralta went 3.1 innings and allowed 2 runs, 1 earned.
