5/23 Minor matters
Brian Bogusevic, Edwin Maysonet and Donnie Murphy each homered but it wasn’t enough as Iowa lost, 9-4, to Las Vegas. Bogusevic homered for the third straight game, and was 5-for-11 in his last four games. Casey Coleman pitched a season-high three innings and did not allow a run.
Tennessee had Wednesday off and plays host to Huntsville on Thursday.
Austin Kirk gave up one run on three hits over five innings in Daytona’s 8-4 win over Jupiter. Javier Baez hit a double and drove in a run, and now has hit safely in nine straight games. Dustin Geiger had two hits.
Albert Almora went 3-for-4 with a double and one RBIs in his first game but it wasn’t enough as Kane County lost, 9-2, to Peoria. Almora, the Cubs’ No. 1 Draft pick in 2012, had been slowed since breaking a hamate bone in his left hand in Spring Training. Dan Vogelbach hit a RBI double as well.
