Tonight, two of the five Minor League affiliates returned to action to continue the young season. Last night, the Iowa Cubs were the only one of three who walked away with victories, picking up a 4-1 decision over the Nashville Sounds.
Tonight the Iowa Cubs were taking on the Sounds once again, with the Kane County Cougars going up against the San Diego Padres’ Class-A affiliate, the Fort Wayne Tincaps.
There’s a lot of action going on across the farm, but we’re only here for Cubbies baseball so let’s get things going and start off with the Iowa Cubs and the Nashville Sounds.
