Josh Vitters had two hits, including his sixth home run, to back Brooks Raley and lift Iowa to an 8-2 win over Memphis on Monday. Raley gave up two runs on six hits over five innings. Brett Jackson had two hits, including a triple, and was batting .243.
Dae-Eun Rhee gave up seven runs on nine hits over 2 1/3 innings in Tennessee’s 8-4 loss to Huntsville. Rebel Ridling hit his sixth homer for the Smokies.
Daytona had Monday off and will play a doubleheader Tuesday against Brevard County. Rob Whitenack and P.J. Francescon were scheduled to start for the Cubs.
Jose Rosario gave up one run on three hits and struck out seven over seven innings in Peoria’s 3-1 loss to Wisconsin. Javier Baez, the Cubs’ No. 1 pick in 2011, had two hits in his debut with the Chiefs.
“I was relaxed,” Baez told the Peoria Journal Star. “I wanted to play my game, get a base hit, and hit the ball hard.”
