Josh Vitters hit his 2nd HR in two days and is now sporting a .868 OPS. Beef Castle also hit a HR off former Cub and longtime personal favorite Angel Guzman. Chris Volstad was super shitty as always giving up 9 hits and 5 ER in 5 IP.
This game went well into extra's with the Smokies knocking out future Cub…err Dodger prospect Zach Lee before the 4th inning. Logan Watkins went 3-6 with a walk & Jae Hoon Ha was 2-5 with a walk of his own. Michael Burgess was 1-3. The pitching was awful as Kevin Rhoderick's season and stock has imploded. We can't even make good RP's this year folks.
Trey McNutt failed as a RP giving up 3 ER and 2 BB in 1 IP. On the bright side Zach Rosscup worked 3 scoreless innings while striking out 5. Junior Lake was 2-4 and Logan Watkins had another nice game batting 2-4 with a BB.
Chadd Krist went 1-3 with a walk. That is literally the best thing about this game. Move along.
Nobody was injured in this game. That is literally the only good thing that happened. Move along.
Jorge Soler hit his first pro HR last night and you can watch it here (H/T Cubs Den). Shawon Dunston Jr is back in the land of the living going 3-4 and Lendy Castillo continued his brave struggle vs David Patton disease by throwing 4 sparking innings of no run ball while fanning 5 batters.
