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


Brett Jackson hit a triple. He also struck out. That is all.


Logan Watkins was 3-6 and swiped his 18th bag of the year. Watkins is now sporting a stylish .370 OBP and will most likely end up in Iowa next season. Jae Hoon Ha was also 3-6 and hit his 4th HR of the year. On the pitching side of things Zach Rosscup earned a K on 5 of the 6 outs he recorded which is great but gave up a pair of runs which is not so great. Trey McNutt also was a big bowl of fail in the pen giving up 2 ER in 2.1 IP. 


Spellcheck Jr went 2-4 and stole bases # 31 & 32 yesterday. Kyle(r) Burke's pitching performance was as stupid as his name as he gave up 4 ER in 6 IP. 


Pin-Chieh Chen had a good game going 3-4 with 3 stolen bases and a walk. Chen was an all-star last year in Boise but has struggled to impress so far in Peoria. Nickelback stand in Chadd Krist was 2-4 and has just destroyed minor league pitching so far. Justin Berg (remember him?) worked 2 IP as he continues his rehab from TJ. 


Bijan Rademacher hit 3 doubles yesterday and earned a promotion up to Peoria. Rademacher is a 2012 draft pick that was obviously too advanced for both AZL and Boise. Jeimer Candelario hit a walkoff HR for the win, his 5th of the year. 


Dan Vogelbach did't get a hit but he did earn 3 walks and is just destroying this level. Shawon Dunston Jr hit a HR and hopefully is getting on the right track after a really rough start to his pro career. Lendy Castillo struck out 4 batters in 3.0 scoreless innings.
