System Recap: Bats Go Cold, Pitchers Step Up, Emeralds Love Extras

Sunday saw the bats fall silent throughout the minors for the young Cubs. Even without production on the offensive side, the organization was still able to produce some wins with a ton of help from their pitchers. Across the board there was only one loss on Sunday, and plenty of notable performances to take a look at.

Iowa fell to Omaha 5-2

Rob Zastryzny worked 5 innings, giving up 3 runs on 5 hits with 5 strikeouts and 1 walk. His big problem was the two home runs he gave up.

Taylor Davis provided the entire offense as far as run production goes, driving in 2 runs with his home run in the top of the 1st inning.

John Andreoli got on base 3 times, by way of a double and 2 walks.

Tennessee’s game with Biloxi was postponed.

Myrtle Beach defeated Carolina 4-2

Kyle Miller started on the bump and threw 5 innings without giving up a walk, but only punched out 2 batters. He gave up 5 hits and 2 runs on the day.

Tyler Pearson went yard in the 2nd inning, a 2 run bomb.

Jesse Hodges reached base via the walk 3 times in this one.

South Bend won a squeaker against Dayton 3-2

Jose Paulino had a terrific outing, going 7 full innings and only giving up a run on 3 hits. He tossed in 6 strikeouts and did not walk a single batter.

It was not a pretty game offensively to say the least as the Cubs spread out 5 hits in this one by 5 different players, with only 1 RBI (from Chris Pieters) due to 2 costly errors from Dragon fielders.

Eugene defeated Spokane 2-1 in ANOTHER extra inning game

2nd round draftee Cory Abbott started but went just 3 innings, keeping his pitch count down to 42 (27 strikes). He gave up a run on 2 hits while striking out 4 and walking 2.

Enrique De Los Rios came on in relief but threw 5 innings and only gave up a single hit in this one.

Manuel Rodriguez looked very impressive in his 2 innings, striking out 2 but putting up zeros across the board besides that.

Gustavo Polanco carried the big bat today, with 2 hits including a homer and a double  while driving in a run as well.
