The Iowa Cubs took a pair of afternoon games from the Portland Beavers on Mother's Day winning 3-0 and 3-2 in the doubleheader.
Rich Hill threw 5.2 innings in the shutout, allowing three hits while striking out eight. Sam Fuld went 2-for-3 with a double and catcher Koyie Hill also added a double and drove in two runs.

LF Matt Murton was 2-3 with an RBI on Friday night. He's had two hits in three straight and five of six games since returning from Chicago and is batting .476 (10-21) in this span. He is tied for the team lead (Kroeger) with nine multi-hit games in 18 starts...RF Josh Kroeger was 2-3 with a stolen base and scored a run on Friday night. He's had a hit in a season-high six straight games and eight of his last nine, with three straight multi-hit games...SS Andres Blanco has hit safely in three straight games and eight of his last nine...1B Micah Hoffpauir has a hit and has scored a run in all three games since coming off the disabled list...RHP Mike Burns' save on Friday night was his first since May 24th last year while pitching for Pawtucket against Syracuse. He was 3-for-8 in save chances with PawSox...C Tony Richie was 4-4 with two doubles, a home run, four RBI, and scored three runs on Thursday afternoon and tied his career-highs for hits, runs, RBI, and total bases.

Depth, yea; talent, I don't know.

Kroeger, Fuld, Patterson, Murton, Hoffpaiuer, these guys are all 26+ and non-prospects by this point

Besides Russell, Ceda, and the Korean kid there isn't alot to get excited about in the younger crowd, unless Colvin's meagerly improved BB rate falls under that category.

Monday in Iowa:

Micah Hoffpauir homered and the Iowa Cubs cruised to their sixth straight victory with a 10-6 win over the Portland Beavers Monday night at Principal Park.

Cubs lefty Sean Marshall, making his second start of the season for Iowa and first since being optioned by Chicago on Friday, did not factor in the decision. Marshall struck out three and allowed three hits on the night, while throwing only 63 pitches.

Six Cubs had multiple hits in the win, including Hoffpauir who finished the evening 3-for-4 while driving in four. Seven of Iowa's 14 hits were for extra base hits, including a pair of doubles by left fielder Matt Murton.

Good to hear Murton's finally starting to hit some XBH's.

That brings his season OPS to a whopping .690 something

The only thing to like is that he's doubled his walk total from last year at AA in 100 less at-bats. He is also striking out 25% of his at-bats, obviously that could also be due to him trying to improve his pitch selection and patience..

First baseman Micah Hoffpauir has begun playing right field at Triple-A Iowa so the Cubs can bring him up this summer as a reserve outfielder. Hoffpauir, who led the Cubs with a .419 average in spring training, went 2-for-4 Tuesday with a home run and five RBIs. He missed the first five weeks with an oblique strain.

"We're playing him at first and the outfield," general manager Jim Hendry said. "We're just giving him his best chance to be versatile in case we need a left-handed bat. He has hit the ground running. It just makes sense. If you're going to pencil yourself in as a first baseman, you're probably not going to get too much playing time [behind Derrek Lee]."

Iowa win 11-7 and go 20 games over .500 at 58-38.

Dubois hit his 4th homer in 2 games, Pie had 2 RBI's including a triple and Hoff had 3 hits and 4 RBI's.
