Trent Giambrone goes nuts in Smokies win. Casey Coleman makes a triumphant return to the Cubs organization.
With the holiday festivities yesterday, I forgot to announce the winner of the BCB Minor League Pitcher of the Month vote! You voted for Myrtle Beach’s Duncan Robinson, who didn’t walk anyone all month. The Cubs also named Robinson as the “official” Minor League Pitcher of the Month and South Bend first baseman Jared Young as the Player of the Month. You voted for Victor Caratini, but he was already back in Chicago by the time the Cubs announced their winner.
The Iowa Cubs were sharp against the flat Nashville Sounds (Athletics), 7-1.
Casey Coleman made a victorious return to the Cubs organization, allowing just one run on three hits over six innings. Coleman struck out nine and walked just two.
Iowa exploded for six runs in the sixth inning and that much more than the I-Cubs pitching staff would need.
Second baseman Chesny Young gave the I-Cubs the lead with a two-run single in the sixth. Young was 2 for 4 with three RBI. He scored one run.
Catcher Taylor Davis went 2 for 4 with one run scored.
