Iowa Cubs – Brett Jackson has contact issues.  He strikes out in over a third of his at-bats, including 3 in 5 at-bats Sunday.  However, he also has a triple and a double in his last two games, and also had a game in the past week in which he hit a home run, triple, and single, finishing the night a double shy of the cycle.  Anthony Rizzo continues to dominate, batting .346 this season.  Josh Vitters had a double Sunday, and his batting average sits at .248.

Tennessee Smokies – Trey McNutt allowed three runs over five innings on Sunday, but only one was earned.  Alberto Cabrera has been dominant, holding a 2.29 ERA.  Marcus Hatley has an almost-equally impressive 2.75 ERA.

Daytona Cubs – While Chicago was busing losing to the White Sox, Daytona was in Palm Beach to face the Cardinals and lost 8-4.  Nelson Perez did the most of any Cub Sunday, going 2-for-4 with a double.  Micah Gibbs hit a triple.

Peoria Chiefs – Peoria won 9-6 over the Cedar Rapids Kernels on Sunday, as Gerardo Concepcion took the mound.  Concepcion was rather ineffective, lasting just five innings while giving up four runs on six hits.  Concepcion had a balk in the game and induced 3 groundouts and 5 flyouts in front of 1,611 fans.  Concepcion walked three and struck out two.
