9/12 Cubs Minor League report

Dae-Eun Rhee gave up two runs on four hits over six innings for the win in Daytona’s 4-2 victory over St. Lucie to claim the Florida State League championship on Sunday. It was the Daytona team’s fifth title since it joined the Cubs in 1993.

“We just showed a lot of character,” Daytona manager Buddy Bailey said. “We had a lot of changes and had to find the right formula.”

Greg Rohan had three hits and one RBI, Justin Bour and Logan Watkins each had two hits and one RBI, and Elliot Soto had two hits for Daytona. Frank Batista converted his third save of the series, throwing a perfect ninth.

* Tennessee is waiting to find out who its opponent will be for the Southern League Championship, scheduled to begin Wednesday. The Birmingham-Mobile series is tied at two wins apiece. The Smokies swept Chattanooga to clinch its third straight Southern League North Division title.
