The Cubs’ Low-A Affiliate Myrtle Beach Pelicans Scored TWENTY-FOUR RUNS

Chicago Cubs

Before I get into the business of going over last night’s big Cubs loss (‘big’ as in the level of the team, not the gravity of that particular loss … ), I’d rather start my day by enjoying the EXPLOSION of offense down at Low-A Myrtle Beach, where the Pelicans saw that 21-run Cubs output earlier this year and said, hey, we’re the future, we can do better.

Last night, the Pelicans put up a 24-SPOT in their win (yes, obviously it was a win), and it was just a parade of hits for the prospects down there:

In addition to Peter Matt’s big day (10th rounder in 2021), the other big days:

⇒ Yeison Santana (Yu Darvish trade) had a single, a double, and three walks

⇒ Reggie Preciado (Yu Darvish trade) had two singles, two doubles, and six RBI

⇒ B.J. Murray Jr. (15th rounder in 2021) had a single, two doubles, and a walk

⇒ Cole Roederer (2nd round compensatory in 2018) had two singles and two doubles

⇒ Pete Crow-Armstrong (Javy Báez trade) had two singles, a homer, and a walk

⇒ Ethan Hearn (6th rounder in 2019) had two singles and two walks

⇒ The only player who didn’t get a hit was Kevin Alcántara, who walked twice. James Triantos probably had the “worst” day of everyone, and he at least doubled.
