Memphis Redbirds 7 @ Iowa Cubs 1 Mike Olt went 0-2 with a walk. Yoanner Negrin was pretty awesome, allowing 1 run in 5 innings. He walked 1 and allowed 4 hits.

Cubs minor league recap for August 13, 2013. Dan Vogelbach and Kris Bryant are both promoted…and both go deep!
Sacramento River Cats 1 @ Iowa Cubs 2 So, there's a pretty cool story here. Josh Vitters came back, and played 3B (Olt played DH). He hit a home run in the bottom of the 4th; then, in the 5th, Olt called, and hit a home run of his own. Vitters ended up going 1-2 […]
Fresno Grizzlies 4 @ Iowa Cubs 1 Mike Olt went 0-3. Yoanner Negrin got the start and was pretty decent. He allowed 3 runs in 6 innings, but only 1 run was earned. In any case, he allowed 5 hits and a walk and struck out 7. Marcus Hatley and Zach Rosscup each went one […]
Iowa Cubs 10 @ Tacoma Rainiers 3 Hey! Mike Olt hit a home run and walked 3 times! Clearly, his struggles are over. Darnell McDonald went 2-6 with a jack, as did Dave Sappelt. Player of the day (for this team), though, was Edgar Gonzalez. He was 5-6 with 3 home runs! Yoanner Negrin had […]
Iowa Cubs 5 @ Tacoma Rainiers 6 8 runs were scored in the first 2 innings. Mike Olt went 0-4 with no walks or strikeouts. Justin Grimm was pretty poor early on, allowing 5 runs in the first 2 innings. Afterwards, he settled down and didn't allow another run. He ended with a 6 IP, […]
Iowa Cubs 3 @ Salt Lake Bees 6 Mike Olt went 0-4. Jae-Hoon Ha went 2-3 with a walk. No one else played so don't even look. I seriously considered linking that score to a rick roll. Justin Grimm had a pretty forgettable 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 5 SO start. Casey Coleman […]
Iowa Cubs 4 @ Salt Lake Bees 5 I. Don't. Care. And neither do you. Mike Olt went 1-4, but every time he didn't single, he struck out. Logan Watkins also singled, as did a bunch of other people. What do you want from me? At least Jae-Hoon Ha doubled and homered; Edwin Mayonnaise and […]
Iowa Cubs 3 @ Oklahoma City RedHawks 4 Snore. Logan Watkins did well, going 2-4 with a double. Donnie Murphy tripled. Ty Wright singled and homered, and Darnell McDonald doubled, walked, and singled. That's it. Mike Olt was 0-4 with another strikeout. Brooks Raley was very serviceable, allowing 2 runs in 6.2 innings. He walked […]
Iowa Cubs 3 @ Oklahoma City RedHawks 4 Cubs outhit the RedHawks 9 to 7 in this one. Mike Olt went 0-4 with a strikeout, and Logan Watkins went 0-5. Watkins has a .508 after the ASB and a .556 OPS since July. Hopefully he gets back on the train soon, because Alcantara is not far behind him as […]
New Orleans Zephyrs 3 @ Iowa Cubs 4 Mike Olt went 0-2 with a walk and a run scored. Josh Vitters helpfully took himself out of the running for 3B by injuring himself as he rounded first. He went 1-2 with and RBI and the severity of his injury is not yet known. Jake Arrieta helped his […]
New Orleans Zephyrs 0 @ Iowa Cubs 1 The only run in the game was scored in the bottom of the 9th. Logan Watkins went 2-4 and was the only real offense. Donnie Murphy was 1-4 and scored the only run of the game off a Edwin Maysonet (remember him?) single to send the Des Moines crowd happy. Mike […]
