5/10 Minor matters & Maddux
The Peoria Chiefs will retire Greg Maddux’s No. 31 in pre-game ceremonies on June 11. Maddux pitched for the Peoria team in 1985. Maddux is currently an assistant to Cubs GM Jim Hendry.
* Mitch Atkins, making a spot start for the Iowa Cubs, gave up one run on three hits over five innings in a 6-1 win over Oklahoma City. Marquez Smith homered and Chad Tracy had four hits, including a double. Darwin Barney had three hits — all part of a 16-hit attack.
Atkins was subbing for Mike Parisi, who has been assigned to Double-A Tennessee.
“He was throwing the ball OK but he’s still not as sharp as he should be,” Cubs player development director Oneri Fleita said of Parisi.
* Su-Min Jung gave up six runs on seven hits over four innings in Peoria’s 15-6 loss to Kane County. Greg Rohan extended his hitting streak to eight games with a hit.
* Tennessee and Daytona had the day off.
