Cubs Minor League Recap for April 16, 2012

I'd give the stars of the night to two Peoria Chiefs, Ryan Cuneo and Michael Jensen.

Iowa 3 - @Round Rock 2; No multi-hit games for Iowa, but Campana, Jackson, Castillo  and Cardenas reach base multiple times. Campana and Jackson's speed and the defensive miscues of Tommy Mendonca (3B) and Dusty Brown (C) lead to two runs without a hit for Iowa in the third. Sappelt added the go-ahead run with a triple in the 6th to score Castillo. Coleman got the start and went 5.1 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K. B. Parker gets his second save of the season.

@Huntsville 5 - Tennessee 2; McNutt gives up his first run of the season but just the one in 4 innings of work including 3 K's and 1 BB. He gets saddled with the loss but it was J. Antigua with the bad night, giving up 4 ER in 2.1 innings of work. No walks for the Smokies and just 2 extra-base hits by Apodaca and Mota.

@Dunedin 6 - Daytona 3; Szczur with a 4/5 night, but Rohan is the offensive star with a 3/5 night including a double and a home run. E. Jokisch goes 6 innings against the Toronto affiliate, giving up 4 ER on 7 K, 3 BB and 6 H.

@Peoria 6 - Cedar Rapids 2; Multi-hit games for Rafael Lopez, R. Cuneo, and Paul Hoilman. Oliver Zapata also got on-base three times with the help of two walks. Cuneo though lifted two over the fence and had 4 RBI's for the best offensive performance of the evening. M. Jensen improved to 3-0 with a line of 6 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 1 HR.

#6, #43, #56 for Cubs in the 1st round and compensation round

and then I believe #67 in the 2nd round, #101 in the 3rd round, #134 in 4th round and then every 30 after that (164, 194, etc).

Only 40 rounds this year, down from 50.

  • Now who can argue with that? I think we're all indebted to Gabby Johnson for clearly stating what needed to be said. I'm particularly glad that these lovely children were here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed a courage little seen in this day and age.
