The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by Microsoft Longhorn


Diory Hernandez went 1-5. Who is Diory Hernandez? Exactly. 


Jae Hoon Ha was 2-3 with a BB and has really been on a hot streak for the last few weeks. Ha also gunned down a runner at the plate.  Junior Lake went 2-4 and is hitting .286. Trey McNutt pitched a clean inning out of the bullpen. I wonder if we will see him in September. 


No Game


Tim Saunders just keeps hitting and went 2-4 last night. The D3 product has just pissed on the ball since he was drafted although yesterday BA's Jim Callis mentioned he may not stick at SS and the Cubs have tried him out at several positions so far. Knuckleballer Joe Zeller gave up 5 ER in 6 IP.


Dan Vogelbach went 3-4 with a BB and his 9th HR which was a massive shot to dead center. His OPS in Boise is currently 1.104. Stephen Bruno collected 3 hits and a pair of walks and is hitting .340. Marco Hernandez was 1-3 with a BB and hit his 5th HR of the year as well. Hernandez has recovered from a pretty bleak stint in Peoria to start the year. Hopefully his return next season goes better. 


Paul Blackburn had a great start striking out 4 in 4 and only allowing a pair of hits. Blackburn has 12 K's in 17.2 IP.
