4/28 Minor League report

Rob Whitenack threw six scoreless innings but did not get the win as Tennessee lost, 2-1, to Jacksonville. The Suns scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth. This was Whitenack’s first start for the Double-A team. In four games at Class A Daytona this year, he was 3-0 with a 1.17 ERA.

Evan Crawford had three hits and two stolen bases and Justin Bour homered but it wasn’t enough as Daytona lost to Tampa, 8-6, in 11 innings. The loss snapped the Cubs’ winning streak at six games.

Matt Szczur had three hits to extend his hitting streak to six games and help Peoria beat Clinton, 7-2. Robinson Lopez picked up the win in relief, striking out one in four innings.

Iowa had the day off Wednesday and opens a four-game series at Omaha Thursday.
