On the day of the All-Star Game, even most minor league teams take a day off. Most teams. Not all.
And in the Cubs’ system, that meant Tennessee, and only Tennessee, were on the diamond yesterday. Fortunately, they won!
Unfortunately, this is going to be a really short Daily.

We have an All-Star Game today as well. The Triple A All Star Game featuring the Pacific Coast League versus the International League starts at 8:05 PM tonight. Pitchers Seth Frankoff and Matt Carasiti were selected for the game, as well as catcher Victor Caratini (but he’s with the big league team).
