Play will resume with the Cubs leading 4-0 and Bryan LaHair batting with the bases empty, one out, and a 2-0 count. Isotopes' starter John Ely walked Sam Fuld to start the game and Darwin Barney moved him to second with a base hit to right. After Bobby Scales struck out, Micah Hoffpauir ripped a double down the right field line that drove in Fuld and Barney. Ty Wright followed with a homer to left field to complete the scoring. It was Wright's first home run since joining the I-Cubs on June 27th. These stats will become official once the game is completed in August.
The Cubs travel to Oklahoma City on Saturday to start a four-game series against the RedHawks to complete this road trip. RH Jeff Samardzija (7-1, 2.64) will start for the Cubs against LH Michael Ballard (5-5, 4.79) for the RedHawks. The game will start at 7:05 and will be broadcast live on AM 940 with the Safeco On-Deck Circle Pre-Game Show starting at 6:40.
