7/19 Minor League report

Brooks Raley threw seven shutout innings but did not get a decision in Iowa’s 2-1, 11-inning win over New Orleans. Dave Sappelt had two hits. The Iowa Cubs got some bad news Wednesday when they had to put Randy Wells on the disabled list because of a right elbow strain.

Tennessee had Wednesday off, and begins a nine-game road trip Thursday against Chattanooga. Eric Jokisch was scheduled to start.

Taylor Davis hit a solo home run but it wasn’t enough as Daytona lost, 3-1, to Charlotte. P.J. Francescon took the loss, giving up three runs on seven hits and four walks over 5 1/3 innings.

Javier Baez extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a two-hit game but it wasn’t enough as Peoria lost, 9-8, in 10 innings to Western Michigan. Zeke DeVoss also had two hits, two RBIs and two stolen bases.

Tayler Scott gave up four runs over 4 2/3 innings in Boise’s 8-4 loss to Yakima. Gioskar Amaya hit his fourth home run and Trey Martin had two hits.

Anthony Prieto threw two shutout innings and Loiger Padron threw three scoreless innings in Mesa’s 4-0 win over the Dodgers. Daniel Lockhart drove in two runs, and has hit safely in 11 of his last 12 games.

* On Thursday, Cuban outfielder Jorge Soler was scheduled to be the designated hitter for the Mesa team, in what will be his Cubs pro debut.
