Audio: Hoffpauir, Walker talk Hitting

Cubs prospects Micah Hoffpauir and Chris Walker have done well at Triple-A this season.

Chris Walker got off to somewhat of a slow start at Double-A Tennessee before a nine-game hitting streak lifted his average to .345 through 14 games.

The 26-year-old Walker was promoted to Triple-A Iowa late last month, where he's hit safely in nine of his first 10 games there.
