Minor League Wrap--September 8

Minor League Wrap--September 8

It's just the Daytona Cubs wrap these days, and they just don't want their time in the spotlight to end.

Daytona Cubs

The Daytona Cubs failed to win the FSL Championship tonight as they lost to the Fort Myers Miracle, 5-3.  They'll try again tomorrow.

The bad James Russell returned tonight as he got battered for five runs in 5.2 innings.  He gave up eight hits, including a pair of two-run home runs.  If you're a "glass is one-eighth full" type,  Russell didn't walk a batter.  He struck out three.

Jordan Latham pitched 2.1 innings of relief without allowing a hit or a run.  He did walk two, though, and struck out one.

Second baseman Tony Thomas has been hot throughout the playoffs and that continued tonight.  Thomas was 3 for 5 with a two-run home run in the fifth inning.  Thomas also scored twice and stole a base.

Catcher Steve Clevenger was 2 for 5.  By the way, anyone else here remember the way that Jim Frey used to play Jody Davis every day, hardly ever giving him a break?  Jody's returning the favor as Clevenger has started behind the plate of every single game of the post-season so far.

Left fielder Ty Wright went 2 for 4 with a walk.  He did strike out with the bases loaded and two out in the eighth, though.

Shortstop Darwin Barney had a 2 for 4 game and scored a run.

The D-Cubs still lead the series two games to one and will try to finish out the series tomorrow night at home.
