JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 8-4-13

Iowa Cubs 8 @ Tacoma Rainiers 4

Mike Olt was 2-5 with a double and triple; he struck out twice. 

Jake Arrieta was nasty, as I said earlier. He struck out 11 in 5 scoreless innings, scattering 2 hits and 3 walks. Alberto Cabrera allowed a pair of runs in the 2 innings he pitched. Chang-Yong Lim, coming to a bullpen near you, pitched a scoreless frame. Brian Schlitter allowed a pair of runs in one inning also.

Tennessee Smokies 4 @ Jacksonville Suns 10

Brett Jackson led off in the game, and went 2-4 with 2 runs and a strikeout. Arismendy Alcantara continues to flounder, going 0-4 with 3 SO. Javier Baez was Javier Baez, going 3-4 with a double with 2 RBI, a SB, and a K. Rubi Silva was 0-4 with 2 SO. 

A.J. Morris was terrible, allowing 7 runs and recording 4 outs. PJ Frankie was also bad, allowing a trio of runs in just under a trio of innings. Jeffry Antigua and Frank Batista each allowed no runs, in 3 and 1 innings, respectively.

Kane County Cougars 1 @ Clinton LumbaKings 11

Albert Almora was lifted for a pinch-hitter in this game, but there's no chatter that I can see as to the reason. He and Dan Vogelbach each went 0-4. In fact, the only decent game was Giuseppe Papaccio was 3-3. As a team, the Cougars only struck out once but did not walked. That's crazy.

Tyler Skulina had his first really bad outing (that I can remember), allowing 3 in 2. Justin Amlung allowed a run in 2 innings, and Jose Rosario crapped the bed, allowing 7 runs on 5 walks/6 hits in 3 innings. Stephen Perakslis allowed a hit but nothing else in 1 inning.

Boise Hawks 10 @ Everett Sawks 5

Kris Bryant should be promoted to Kane County, like, today. He went 3-5 with 2 more doubles (he struck out twice and had a fielding error). Rony Rodriguez homered twice and also singled. Jordan Hankins also homered and walked twice. 

Rob Zastryzny had a bad one, allowing a quartet of runs in 7 outs. My main man CMP allowed a run in 1.2 innings, but then saved 3 kittens from a burning tree. Sam Wilson, Zack Godley, and Tyler Bremer each allowed no runs.

VSL Tigers 9 @ VSL Cubs 6
AZL Athletics 3 @ AZL Cubs 7

Trevor Clifton allowed a hit and walk in 1 inning, and no runs.
