CUBS
Iowa (AAA)
Hung-Wen Chen had his longest and best outing as an I-Cub Wednesday night at Principal Park as Iowa downed Tacoma, 9-3.

Chen (2-1) pitched Triple-A best six innings, allowing two runs and scattering six hits. He had gone at least six innings in 12 of his 16 starts at Tennessee earlier this year but has started in only two of his seven appearances for the I-Cubs.

Brad Snyder had a pair of hits and three RBIs, giving him 82 for the season while tying his career high set in 2005 while playing for Kinston and Akron as a member of the Indians. Micah Hoffpauir was 1-for-3 with an RBI, extending his hitting streak to 13 games. Hes batting .408 (20-for-49) during the streak. Bobby Scales added a double and two RBIs.

Tennessee (AA)
Craig Muschko earned his third consecutive victory Wednesday night as Tennessee upended Montgomery, 3-1.

Muschko (6-3) allowed only one run while tying a season high by going seven innings. Hes 4-0 with a save in his last 10 appearances, seven of which have been starts. He has a 2.41 ERA over the 10 games, a span of 52 13 innings. Russ Canzler had three hits, including a pair of doubles, and an RBI.

In other action, the Cubs traveled to Jupiter and were buried, 18-4, at Roger Dean Stadium. The Hammerheads have the second-worst winning percentage in minor league baseball yet racked up 19 hits. Dae-Eun Rhee gave up five runs in five innings to take the loss. DJ LeMahieu had three hits, extending his hitting streak to seven games, during which he is batting .500 (13-for-26).

WHITE SOX

Winston-Salem (A)
Seth Loman set a Carolina League record Wednesday night but it wasnt enough to lift Winston-Salem, which dropped a 9-5 decision to Wilmington at BB&T Ballpark.

Loman, who extended his hitting streak to six games, was hit by a Will Smith pitch in the third inning. It was the 25th time he has been hit by a pitch this year, breaking the Carolina League mark he shared with Rusty Crockett. The record had stood for 21 years after Crockett was hit 24 times while playing for the Winston-Salem Spirit.

Josh Phegley added a pair of hits while Ozzie Lewis had two hits and two RBIs. Charlis Burdies allowed an unearned run in two innings and was charged with the loss.

Kannapolis (A)
The Intimidators extended their winning streak to three games by virtue of a 4-2 victory over Greensboro at Fieldcrest Canon Stadium.

Andre Rienzo improved to 4-0 in his last six starts after allowing two runs in 6 23 innings. He has a 1.88 ERA in those six starts, a 38 23-inning stretch. Ryan Kussmaul closed things out for his first save. Ian Gac had a double and two RBIs.
