It was a week filled with losses for the Chicago Cubs affiliate teams, but there were some truly exceptional individual performances from players you want to see it from. 

The Iowa Cubs struggled to a 2-4 record against the Buffalo Bison and the Omaha Storm Chasers. Next week they’ll have a series with the Columbus Clipper and look to get back on track. 

Much like the Triple-A team, Tennessee only managed a 2-4 record this week against the Rocket City Trash Pandas and the Biloxi Shuckers. They’ll look to get back to winning baseball next week against the Chattanooga Lookouts.

In a wild turn of events, it was the South Bend Cubs that had one of the best weeks with a 3-3 record against the Quad Cities River Bandits, and the Lansing Lugnuts. They’ll try to make it a trend next week by continuing to beat up Iowa teams when they play the Cedar Rapids Kernels.

Finally, at Low-A Myrtle Beach, the Pelicans went 3-3 against the Lynchburg Hillcats and the Salem Red Sox. Next week, they’ll start a series against the Augusta Green Jackets and try to maintain their recent dominance.
