Iowa Cubs (AAA) (59-42)

The Iowa Cubs had their game against the Toledo Mud Hens Rained Out

Tennessee Smokies (AA) (56-41)

The Tennessee Smokies beat the Chattanooga Lookouts 13-4

The Smokies have been scoring runs in the same way as the major league club with some names that you wouldn’t expect to see on a recap as the biggest producers of that offense. Beyond that, a former first-round pick continued to absolutely dominate hitters from the mound despite moving up a level of competition. 

Owen Caissie (OF) went 2-for-5 with a double and a triple with two RBI and two runs scored. 

Andy Weber (2B) went 1-for-4 with a single, a walk, an RBI and a run scored.

Jordan Nwogu (OF) continued his hot streak as he hit a grand slam and also drew a walk. 

Levi Jordan (SS) went 1-for-4 with a single, a walk, an RBI and two runs scored. 

Cade Horton (RHP) dominated. He threw four innings of scoreless baseball and only allowed two hits and no walks while striking out six.
