With severe weather pounding much of Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin on Monday night, many people were more focused on their roofs and vehicles than Minor League Baseball, but regardless, four of the five Chicago Cubs affiliates were in action, splitting to go 2-2 on the evening, with several of the contests going into extra innings.
Kane County, the Cubs’ Class-A affiliate, was postponed in Beloit, while Tennessee dropped an extra-inning nail biter at home to Montgomery. Boise lost a road game to Tri-City and Daytona barely snuck out a 9-8 win over the Lakeland Flying Tigers. The highlight on the farm, though, was a Kris Bryant grand slam and a Manny Ramirez home run that led Triple-A Iowa to a 7-6 win at home in ten.
Here’s a closer look at the games from Monday.
