The Children Are The Future- Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by Friendster


Brett Jackson had a Brett Jackson kind of game going 1-4 with a BB and two strike outs & a stolen base. Dave Sappelt was 3-4 and has turned his season around after a really poor start. 




Ronald Torreyes hit 2-5 with a double and a pair of RBI's. 2012 pick Tim Saunders who is being groomed for a super utility role got 3 hits in 4 AB's. AJ Morris earned another save striking out two in 1 IP.


Javier Baez went 2-4  and struck out twice. Michael Jensen struck out 6 in 5 while allowing 2 ER. 


Jeimer Candelario had a nice game as he went 3-4 with 3 RBI's after hitting a double off the wall. Dan Vogelbach hit his first HR as a Boise Hawk and is batting .346 since his promotion. Marco Hernandez hit a towering shot to RF his 3rd of the season. 


Albert Almora was removed with a groin injury after 1 AB last night. Ben Carhart was 2-3 with a pair of walks. Carhart is a 2012 pick who should move up to a more age appropriate level. So far he is sporting a .392/.479/.532 line.
