Prospect Round-up: May 27
SALT LAKE CITY 9, IOWA 3 (CLASS AAA)
The Bees' bats cooled off Iowa (25-20) for one night. The Cubs managed nine hits themselves, with Brad Snyder and Matt Camp (both 2-for-4) leading the team in hits, but left eight on base. Mitch Atkins (3-2) was roughed up in his fourth start, suffering his first loss in the rotation this season. He allowed a season-high six runs (four earned) on seven hits in five innings.
TENNESSEE 3, MONTGOMERY 0 (CLASS AA)
Tennessee (28-18) got a season-high 17 hits Wednesday, and every starter recorded at least one hit. Fifteen of the hits were singles, and Blake Lalli and Steve Clevenger (both 3-for-4) paced the offense. Tony Campana (2-for-5) extended his hitting streak to nine games. He is batting .361 in 44 games, one point shy of the Southern League lead. Campana leads the Cubs' system in hitting.
Austin Bibens-Dirkx (3-1) threw arguably his best game of the season. The right-hander scattered just two hits over seven shutout innings to lower his ERA to a team-leading 2.34 in nine starts. He struck out four batters and did not allow a walk. Bibens-Dirkx has five quality starts in his last six outings and has a 1.41 ERA in May.
DAYTONA 9, BREVARD COUNTY 3 (CLASS HIGH-A)
Kyler Burke hit another home run, and the Cubs (22-25) won another game. Burke hit his fourth home run in his last seven games Wednesday, a two-run shot, to help Daytona to its fifth straight victory, and eighth in its last nine games. Brett Jackson (2-for-4) hit his second home run and drew a walk for the third straight night. D. J. LeMahieu (1-for-5) hit his seventh double to extend his hit streak to five games. The Cubs' second-round 2009 draft pick from LSU is batting .429 (9-for-21) during the five-game streak and .257 in 45 games overall.
Dae-Eun Rhee started and got a no-decision. The right-hander pitched 4 1/3 innings, allowing two unearned runs on three hits. He walked three and struck out one. Jeff Beliveau (1-1) got the win in relief with 1 2/3 scoreless innings.
CEDAR RAPIDS 7, PEORIA 3 (CLASS LOW-A)
The Chiefs (26-21) were held to five hits in the loss. Richard Jones (2-for-3) was the only Peoria player to finish with two hits. Hak-Ju Lee and Greg Rohan (both 0-for-3) each went hitless to snap six-game hitting streaks. Right-hander Su-Min Jung (4-3) made his seventh start and allowed three earned runs and five hits in 5 2/3 innings.
