It's about to get really crowded in 3B/CF when Junior Lake starts …

New Orleans 10 @ Iowa Cubs 5 (13 innings) Logan Watkins was 1-6 with a strikeout today. He's been ice cold as of late, and his line now sits at .227/.343/.387. Repeat for Dave Sappelt. Brett Jackson went 4-6 with a home run and no strikeouts. He's only had 8 strikeouts in his last 10 games. Ready for the big show, right? Brent Lillibridge went 0-5 …

Iowa Cubs 1 @ Nashville Sound 3 The I-Cubs have lost 3 straight in Nashville, and have scored a grand total of 5 runs in doing so. Hard to believe that an offense that bats Dave Sappelt third is struggling to score runs, but there you have it. Brian Bogusevic had the best day, going 2-3 with a walk and a SB. Logan Watkins, …

Iowa Cubs 6 @ Nashville Sounds 2 The Sounds are 14-36. That's insane. This is how much the Cubs hate Ian Stewart. Josh Vitters is back on the DL and they are giving the majority of starts at 3B to Edwin Maysonet (1-3, HR, 3 RBI). Hyde Yokids also had a home run and went 2-4. Brett Jackson and Donnie Murphy had the only other extra-base hits; each …

Bottom line: Cubs 2 out of 3.  Not bad.  Since Myles had a hard night last night, which we'll blame on the newborn, I volunteered to fill in today with my semi-annual OV post.  You get what you pay for. Iowa Cubs vs a Better Team:  postponed. Divine intervention saves us again.  Tennessee Smokies Eric Jokisch was named Cubs Minor …

Tennessee Smokies 2 @ Mississippi Braves 3 (11 innings) Matt Szczur drew the start in center, going 0-5 with a walk. He's been really frigid as of late. Ronald Torreyes continues his impressive start with a 2-5, 1 R, 1 RBI performance. He also struck out once. Arismendy Alcantara has had a really rough patch, but had a double and a strikeout to go with …
