Caissie, Verdugo, Beesley, and Jordan Go Deep at Riverview

Jared Young (RBI single) and Esteban Quiroz (two-run single) drilled consecutive two-out RBI hits in the bottom of the 3rd to put the I-Cubs on the board, Levi Jordan walloped an opposite field two-run HR in the 6th, and Brennen Davis singled twice and scored a run, leading the Iowa Cubs (AAA affiliate of the Chicago Cubs) to a 5-3 victory over the Sacramento River Cats (AAA affiliate of the San Francisco Giants) on Field #6, and Owen Caissie belted a towering solo HR over the RF fence and onto Cubs Way in the bottom of the 1st, doubled and scored in the 3rd, and walked and stole a base in the 6th, Luis Verdugo smacked a solo HR over the LF fence and into the dog pound parking lot (just missed my truck) in the 5th, Ethan Hearn ripped a two-run double and scored in the 4th and walked in the 6th, and Brad Beesley hammered a game-tying HR for the Tennessee Smokies (Cubs double-A affiliate), and Andy Thomas (acquired from the Seattle Mariners at the 2022 MLB Trade Deadline for Matthew Boyd and Curt Casali) doubled twice, scored a run, and drove-in another for the Richmond Flying Squirrels (Giants AA affiliate), as the two teams played to a 6-6 tie on Field #5, in Cactus League minor league game action Monday afternoon at the Riverview Baseball Complex in Mesa, AZ.

    that was a true kick in the teeth loss.  6 run lead blown.  ARZ won.  CIN won.  MIA postponed (vs NYM)

    You don’t win 100 games without having a lockdown closer.

    Brant Brown came immediately to mind.

    men on and steele in trouble...of course it's cuas up in the pen.  cuas isn't trash, but wow...this is our high-leverage guy?  he's just a bit wild and not exactly hard to hit for a guy being called on so much to deal with guys on base.

    i am becoming increasingly not opposed to signing bellinger if the bidding doesn't get insane.  1st and CF both need "insurance."
