JOT Quick Hits: Cubs Minor League Recap 7-14-13

Albuquerque 5 @ Iowa 1 (18 innings)

Both Jake Arrieta and Jeffry Antigua had "starts" in this one. Arrieta allowed 1 in 6, fanning 9. Antigua allowed none in 6, but only struck one out. Offensively, scoring 1 run in 18 innings is clearly not good for the stat line. Ty Wright did go 2-6 with 2 walks, though. Logan Watkins doubled, as did Junior Lake

Jupiter 2 @ Daytona 6

Zeke DeVoss had a Logan Watkins-day. He was 0-2 with 3 walks and an RBI. Elliot Soto was 2-4, as was Bijan RademacherChadd Krist has risen, going 2-3 with a walk and a jack. Dustin Geiger was 2-3 and also got plunked. Taiwan Easterling saw his average fall to .199 with a 0-2 day, but he did walk twice. His line reads .199/.279/.292 on the season.

Ben Wells allowed 8 baserunners in 5 innings, but only 2 of them scored. Yao-Lin Wang picked up the W with 2 scoreless in the 6th and 7th, and Eduardo Figueroa pitched 2 scoreless frames as well.

Kane County 2 @ West Michigan 5

Gioskar Amaya is on the comeback trail. He doubled and singled twice, also drawing a walk. His average now stands at .265. However, Amaya was also picked off, caught stealing, and had an error. Albert Almora had his worst day of the year so far, going 0-5. Dan Vogelbach was 2-4. Carlos Escobar had a 2-run homer in the 4th, the only offense of the day.

Scott Baker rehabbed in this game. He did not reinjure himself. No one cares about his line. Sheldon McDonald allowed a run in an inning. Michael Heesch allowed no runs in 4 innings. Hooray!

Boise 3 @ Vancouver 0

Daniel Lockhart had the best game of the bunch, driving in a pair in a 3-4, 2B day. Jacob Rogers had a double and a single and drove in the other run. Jordan Hankins had the other multi-hit game.

Rob Zastryzny started this game and went 2 innings. He didn't allow a run (and hasn't yet), striking out 2. Sam Wilson8th round pick this year, went 2 innings and was even more dominant. 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 SO. Zachary Godley (10th round) also went 2 and allowed none, as did Scott Frazier (6th round). Matt Iannazzo had the save. 

VSL Cubs 1 @ VSL Phillies 0

1-4 batters: 8 hits. 5-9 batters, 0 hits.

AZL Cubs 6 @ AZL Athletics 4

Josh Vitters!!! (0-3, 2 SO)


I'd like to take a moment and wonder aloud why my man Carlos Martinez-Pumarino hasn't been used since the 4th of July. Come on, Boise. Do the right thing.
