Iowa Cubs (AAA) (69-52)

The Iowa Cubs lost to the Indianapolis Indians 2-1

Back-to-back one-run losses aren’t what you want to see but the Cubs just couldn’t get the offense going yesterday. Caleb Kilian put together a great start and may have management considering whether or not he’s ready for another look at the big league level if Jordan Wicks doesn’t prove to be the answer for the rest of the season at Wrigley. 

Luis Vazquez (SS) went 2-for-3 with a double, a single and an RBI. 

PJ Higgins (C) went 1-for-3 with a single and a run scored. 

Caleb Kilian (RHP) threw six innings of one-run ball, giving up six hits and no walks while striking out seven. 

Brad Boxberger (RHP) was solid in his one inning of work as he gave up no runs on no walks and no hits while striking out one.
