9/6 Iowa Cubs season ends
Mark Hamilton homered with two outs in the ninth inning to lift Memphis to a 7-6 victory Monday over Iowa and end the I-Cubs season. Hamilton connected off Hung-Wen Chen, who was the third pitcher in the game for Iowa. Jay Jackson started and gave up four runs on seven hits over six innings, striking out two. He exited with the lead. Jason Dubois hit a pair of solo homers for Iowa, which ended the season with the same record as Memphis, but lost the bid to go to the playoffs because of a tiebreaker.
