Another day, another city for Scott Moore. The infielder and Double-A All-Star was recalled from Triple-A Iowa in time for the Cubs’ Labor Day contest against the Pirates at Wrigley Field, just one day after being promoted from West Tennessee.

Moore arrived from Omaha, Neb., in time for Monday’s 1:20 p.m. start, which Pittsburgh won, 5-4. The 22-year-old Moore batted .276 with a career-high 22 home runs in 132 games for Double-A West Tenn this season.

He was named to both the Southern League’s Mid-Season and Post-Season All-Star teams and was the unanimous All-Star Game MVP in Montgomery, Ala., on July 10, going 3-for-4 with two home runs.

Moore was promoted to Triple-A late Saturday evening and made his Iowa debut on Sunday. He was 1-for-4 with a double and started the game at short.

Defensively with the Jaxx, Moore committed 19 errors at third and had a .940 fielding percentage there.

The Cubs acquired Moore from Detroit in February, 2005 as part of the trade that sent Kyle Farnsworth to the Tigers.
