9/8 Cubs Minor League report

Double-A Tennessee opens the best of five North Division Championship Series on Thursday against Chattanooga. The Lookouts took the season series, 13-11. Brooks Raley (8-10, 4.22) was slated to start for Tennessee. The Smokies finished first in the North in the first half but manager Brian Harper said he had a different team in the second half.

“The first half we had the Brett Jacksons, the [Ryan] Flahertys, the [DJ] LeMahieus, the so-called prospects of the organization,” Harper said. “The second half has been more about the Ty Wrights, [Jim] Adducis, [Blake] Lallis and [Steve] Clevengers, the guys who have been here a while.”

* Daytona evened its best of three Division Series against Dunedin with a 3-1 win Wednesday. Jeff Antigua, 21, gave up one run on four hits over seven innings for the win. Matt Szczur hit a sixth inning solo homer and Justin Bour and Elliot Soto each drove in a run. The deciding game is Thursday. Matt Loosen (2-3, 4.42) is slated to start for the D-Cubs.
