What’s going on Chicago Cubs fans? I hope each and everyone of you enjoyed your Good Friday and have yourselves an amazing weekend and a Happy Easter. Now I missed out on some Minor League recaps last night, so before we begin tonight’s coverage let’s go ahead and check out the final scores from last night’s action.

The Iowa Cubs took on the New Orleans Zephyrs yet again but managed to get shut out, losing 1-0. Tennessee Smokies took on the Jackson Generals but gave up five runs during the top of the ninth inning which result in a 5-2 loss. The Kane County Cougars continued their winning ways as they picked up their eighth win in a row by putting up 13 runs against the Dayton Dragons in a 13-1 route.

And then we had the Daytona Cubs who have completely struggled early on in 2014. They were matched up against the Tampa Yankees, and held the lead until the top of the sixth inning. This game would go into extras, where the Yankees would store the deciding run and walk away with the 6-5 victory.

Now that we have those quick recaps out of the way, let’s begin with tonight’s action.

Quick note: Daytona vs Tampa was postponed due to the weather.
