Tuscon Padres 4 @ Iowa Cubs 2
Chris Rusin threw 6.2 innings, allowed 5 hits and 4 runs. He walked 2 and struckout 3. He also hit a batter. Zack Putnam struckout the only batter he faced. Rafael Dolis gave up 2 hits and struck a batter out in an inning of work. Blake Parker pitched the 9th and allowed a walk and a hit. He struck a batter out.
The I-Cubs only had 6 hits and a walk in this one. Logan Watkins had one of the two extra base hits as he went 1-4 with a double. Ian Stewart also doubled and was 2-4. Donnie Murphy was 2-3.
Tennessee Smokies 7 @ Chattanooga Lookouts 5
Dallas Beeler had another strong outing. He went 6 innings, walked 2 and struckout 6. He gave up 4 hits and 3 runs. Trey McNutt struckout 2 in an inning of work.
All of the position players in the lineup had a hit. The top of the order did this:
Matt Szczur 3-5, double
Ronald Torreyes 2-5, double
Arismendy Alcantara: 3-4, 2 doubles, home run
Jair Fernandez was 2-4 and Anthony Giansanti was 2-4 with a double and a triple.
Daytona Cubs 6 @ Lakeland Flying Tigers 5
Zach Cates walked 2 and only struckout 1 in 5.2 innings. He gave up 5 hits and 3 runs. David Cales threw 2.1 innings, allowed 3 hits and 2 runs. He walked a batter and struckout 4. Hunter Cervenka struckout 2 in an inning of work.
The Cubs acquired Cervenka, along with Michael Bowden, in the Marlon Byrd trade with the Red Sox. He’s appeared in 9 games this season and has thrown 17.2 innings. He’s allowed just 7 hits and 4 runs. He’s struckout 16, but he has walked 10. He’s had a tendency to walk a lot of batters so there doesn’t see to be much improvement there. He’ll either need to improve that or he may only have a career of a LOOGY ahead of him.
Zeke DeVoss and Dustin Geiger were 2-5. Geiger doubled. Javier Baez had another good day at the plate going 3-5 with a double. That’s two days in a row he’s had good results. More of it, please.
Jorge Soler continues to rake. He was 2-4 with a walk and a strikeout. Wes Darvill was 3-5.
Kane County Cougars 4 @ Cedar Rapids Kernels 0
Pierce Johnson had his best start of his career last night. He threw 6 innings and struckout 9 batters while walking only 1. He’s having a great year so far. Over 8 starts and 40.2 innings, he’s walked 12 and allowed only 1 home run. He’s struckout 45. Pierce turned 22 a week ago and it won’t be long before he’s in the Daytona rotation if he keeps this up.
Justin Amlung walked 2 and struckout 3 in 2 innings. Jeffry Antigua struckout 2 and and allowed a hit in 1 inning. The Cougars pitchers struckout 14 batters and walked only 3.
Dan Vogelbach and Rock Shoulders were both 2-4. Vogelbach had a double and a strikeout while Shoulders struckout twice and hit his 9th home run of the season. Jeimer Candelario doubled in 4 plate appearances. Oliver Zapata was 3-4 with a home run.
VSL Cubs 3 @ VSL Rays 2
The VSL Cubs had allowed a ton of runs so far. They’ve allowed 22, 8, 15, 15 and now 2 runs. It’s nice to see them play a game that I can be certain is actually baseball.

A Chicago Cubs fan in the left field bleachers at Sunday's game at Wrigley Field tried to be a gentleman and protect his wife from a home run ball, but ended up getting doused with her full cup of beer.

It’s no secret. Cubs fans go to Wrigley Field for the beer and sun. If a baseball game breaks out, it’s an added bonus. During Sunday’s game against the Mets, Cubs starting pitcher Travis Wood clobbered a home run that left the park. But, it wasn’t for a valiant effort by Joe Cubsfan. Watch in the video below as Joe tries to make a web gem of a catch while maintaining...

The Chicago Cubs are suffering through a disappointing stretch, marred by a struggling offense, inconsistent middle and backend relief, and questionable leadership at the hands of Tom Ricketts, Theo Epstein. The starting rotation and ever-patient northside faithful have been the sole glimmers of hope for the young, yet telling season.
With a little over two months remaining before...
Tucson Padres 9 @ Iowa Cubs 8
As I was typing this, it was 9-6. The Cubs had to score 2 runs in the bottom of the ninth to make it interesting, but of course they failed to win it.
Logan Watkins went yard for the 3rd time this season. It was his only hit; he also walked once and struck out twice. He grounded out to end the game. Thanks Logan, I didn't want to stay up any longer...

After a good week of rehab, Matt Garza began to speculate that he would be ready for a Major League return soon. The plan was to allow his bullpen session on Saturday determine when he would come back. It appears that session went well as the team plans to activate Garza Tuesday.
According to Sahadev Sharma of ESPN Chicago, the Cubs will not only activate Garza on Tuesday...
It is one way to celebrate, just not cost effective. In Sunday’s loss to the Chicago Cubs one woman dumped a beer on her partner to the game after he missed a home run off the bat of pitcher Travis Wood.
Wood’s home run came in the fifth inning and narrowly was out of the reaching grasp of the man. The Cubs took a 2-0 lead on the blast but the Mets would come back and win the...
Wrigley Field is known for having Chicago Cubs fans getting extremely drunk during their usually futile seasons. During Sunday’s game against the New York Mets a once happy Cubs couple had alcohol ruin their day. In the fifth inning Cubs pitcher Travis Wood smacked a home run to left field and headed straight towards a woman who wasn’t paying attention. Her hero husband tried...

Josh Vitters is the future at third base for the Cubs, president Theo Epstein told Ian Stewart, Stewart explained to MLB.com’s Carrie Muskat. That means playing time will be hard to come by for Stewart at Triple-A Iowa, where he landed after being removed from the Cubs’ 40-man roster this month. Stewart wondered if the comment was Epstein’s way of trying...
At some point during today’s Cubs victory, Roobs was wondering how Nate Schierholtz did in San Francisco as a Giant because he was having a pretty good season so far. Enter Wendy Thurm, who is a really smart lady and is a good follow on the Twitterz. Nate was really just a part-time player on the Giants as well, but he was a solid contributor and as such he was awarded a World...
Scott Feldman pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning and drove in two runs with a big two-out double, helping the Chicago Cubs beat the New York Mets 8-2 on Saturday.

Minor League Baseball in the Chicagoland area is nearing the start of the 2013 season. That can only mean that summer is approaching in the Windy City. However, wait a few minutes and that weather can change. In Illinois there are ten Minor League ball clubs representing different levels and leagues.
A change for one minor league club, the Kane County Cougars, was a note worthy...
