Cubs Minor League Update 8/25
A few notable pitching debuts last night, so let’s get to it.
Iowa Cubs (AAA)- Lost to Nashville 6-4
Chris Carpenter made his first AAA start, and he didn’t do too well. In three innings he allowed three runs on seven hits and four walks. He did get four strikeouts, and at least there is nowhere to go but up from here.
Marquez Smith (3B) went 1-5, and committed his 9th error of the season.
Brad Snyder (RF) went 2-3 with a home run.
Tennessee Smokies (AA)- Beat West Tennessee 9-6
Recently acquired pitcher Ty’Relle Harris (from the D-Lee trade) got his first start in the Cubs’ organization. He had quite the outing, going five shutout innings allowing just three hits. He had five strikeouts and no walks, not too bad.

Tony Thomas (2B) went 1-4 with a three run homer.

D.J. LeMahieu (2B) went 1-4.
