JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 8-6-13

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 a nice semi-start, going 4 innings where he allowed 5 hits, a walk, and an earned run (2 runs total...

With Marshall missing, the domino effect has never been more prevalent because the Reds have scrambled and scratched and searched to fill his void a left-handed setup guy and a situational left-hander.Marshall...
