ROUND ROCK 5, IOWA 1 (CLASS AAA)

Iowa (7-10) was held to five hits in the loss as a lack of run support helped spoil Jay Jackson's chance at a victory for the second time in four starts this month. The right-hander allowed two runs and five hits in five innings, striking out four batters for the fourth consecutive start. He walked a season-high three. Jackson (2-2) has a 2.35 ERA through 23 innings, with 16 strikeouts to six walks.

Jim Adduci (2-for-3) led the offense with two hits. He is batting .241 in 17 games and has a hit in six of his last seven contests.

BIRMINGHAM 4, TENNESSEE 3 – GAME 1 (CLASS AA)

TENNESSEE 9, BIRMINGHAM 7 – GAME 2

Robinson Chirinos' three-run home run, his fifth of the season, wasn't enough as Birmingham erased a 3-0 first-inning deficit off of top Cubs pitching prospect Andrew Cashner in Game 1. Cashner (1-1) pitched seven innings, allowing four runs on nine hits for his first loss. He struck out four and walked three. Tony Campana (2-for-4) and Ty Wright (2-for-4) had two hits apiece for the Smokies.

In Game 2, Campana (2-for-4), Wright (3-for-4) and Chirinos (3-for-4) again paced the Tennessee (14-3) offense. Campana's four hits total Sunday extended his hitting streak to nine games atop the Smokies' lineup. He is batting a team-high .397 through 16 games. Wright has three straight multi-hit games and is batting .338 in 17 games. He is tied for the Southern League lead in RBI with 20.

Tennessee used four pitchers with Chris Carpenter starting and allowing three runs and six hits in three innings for a no-decision. Jake Muyco (1-0) got the victory despite allowing two runs and four hits in one inning of work.

BREVARD COUNTY 5, DAYTONA 4 – 14 INNINGS (CLASS HIGH-A)

Daytona (7-11) played their longest game of the season Sunday and blew two late-inning leads in the loss. Neither team scored until the 10th inning when the Cubs took a 3-0 lead. Mike Perconte then allowed three runs on three hits and a walk a half-inning later.

Oswaldo Martinez (1-1) suffered the loss in the 14th inning with Chris Siegfried suffering the blown save and allowing the game-winning hit. That spoiled Rafael Dolis' start. The right-hander threw six shutout innings and scattered just two hits. He lowered his ERA to 0.90 through four games this season.

David Macias (3-for-5) started at second base and had a season-high three hits to pace the Cubs' offense. He has hit safely in six straight games to raise his average to .300 for the first time this season. Brett Jackson (1-for-5) doubled and walked twice. He has reached base in 17 of 18 games this season and is batting .294 with a .435 on-base percentage.

QUAD CITIES 3, PEORIA 1 – GAME 1 (CLASS LOW-A)

QUAD CITIES 1, PEORIA 0 – GAME 2

The Chiefs (10-8) were held to three hits the entire day and lost both games of a doubleheader Sunday. In Game 1, Justin Bour (1-for-2) singled to extend his consecutive on-base streak to 15 straight games to open the season. He finished 0-for-3 in Game 2, as Matt Cerda (1-for-1) kept the team from being no-hit. Cerda had two walks and has now 15 walks to 13 strikeouts for the season.

Nicholas Struck (1-2) started Game 1 and allowed three runs over five innings for the loss. He struck out three and walked two. Jeff Antigua (0-1) allowed one run and three hits over five innings for the loss in Game 2.

Jordan Latham threw another scoreless inning in relief Sunday. After missing all of last season, he has opened the year with 7 1/3 scoreless innings.
