AZL Cubs Rookie
Austin Reed, a 12th-round pick in this Junes First-Year Player Draft, rebounded from the worst outing of his young career and helped lead the Cubs to a 5-2 victory over the Angels on Monday.

Reed, who allowed six runs in 2 23 innings in his previous start, didnt factor into the decision on Monday. But he did throw four shutout, no-hit innings, marking the seventh time in 10 appearances that he has not allowed a run. Three of those seven shutout appearances have been starts.

Joe Zeller followed and picked up the win after allowing a run over three innings. Dustin Geiger, a 24th-round pick, had two hits and an RBI.

Iowa AAA
Jeff Samardzija had his best outing in a month Monday night as Iowa shut down Fresno, 5-3. Samardzija allowed four hits over six innings, giving up only an unearned run to improve to 10-2 for the I-Cubs.

Brad Snyder had two hits, including a homer, and two RBIs to pace Iowa though Micah Hoffpauir saw his hitting streak come to an end at 21 games after going 0-for-4.

In other action, Boise dropped a 7-3 decision to visiting Everett. Jeff Vigurs was 1-for-3 with three RBIs.
WHITE SOXBirmingham AA
The Barons split a doubleheader at Mobile, winning the opener 2-1 before dropping the nightcap, 2-1.

Charlie Leesman earned the victory in the first game, allowing a run over six innings. The Barons scored twice in the fourth inning to provide him with the margin of victory. Tyler Kuhn was 3-for-4.

The BayBears scored a run in the bottom of the seventh of Game Two off Greg Infante to earn the win. Chris Marrero had three hits and an RBI for Birmingham.

In other action, Great Falls lost at Orem, 7-4. Ryan Lee had two hits and an RBI. Durham upended Charlotte, 8-7, at Knights Stadium, rallying from a 5-1 deficit to do so. Brent Morel had three hits for the Knights, including a pair of homers, pushing his average to a Triple-A season high of .316.
