Cubs Minor League Daily: All Americans In Wrigley, Extra Innings in South Bend and Eugene

Chicago Cubs

wrigley fans standing at batThe Chicago Cubs are not using Wrigley right now, but there is baseball in the old building. Once again the Under Armour All-American Game is in Wrigley, and you can watch it on at 4 PM ET today.

This game features some of the best high school baseball players in the country, players we will be hearing more about as we head into the 2017 draft. Assuming the Cubs do not sign any more major free agents this winter and keep their first round pick, it isn’t impossible that the Cubs could spend that pick on someone who will be playing in Wrigley this afternoon.

Triple A: Iowa Cubs

Iowa was rained out.

Double A: Tennessee Smokies
Tennessee 2, Mississippi 1
Really good pitching led the way.

High A: Myrtle Beach Pelicans
Myrtle Beach 6, Wilmington 3
The Pelican’s now have fifty wins on the year.

Low A: South Bend Cubs
South Bend 4, Burlington 3 in ten innings.
The teenage double play combo collected the run and the RBI in the walk off tenth.

Short Season A: Eugene Emeralds
Eugene 8, Vancouver 5 in eleven innings.
The Emeralds scored three in the ninth to force extras, then three more in the eleventh to win it.

Rookie: Arizona Cubs

Arizona had the day off.

Other Notes

  • Chris Coghlan went 1 for 3 with a strikeout in his first rehab start in Tennessee.
  • In addition to Coghlan and Soler, the Cubs have sent relief pitcher Jack Leathersich to Tennessee to continue his rehab. Leathersich, if he continues to pitch well, is another late season bullpen option for the Cubs.
  • And here is the video of the South Bend walk off win:
