I-Cubs Capture 11-1 Victory over Dodgers

April 20, 2019 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Iowa Cubs News Release

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - Johnny Field set the tone with a solo shot in the first - his second in as many games - as the Iowa Cubs (10-6) rolled to an 11-1 victory over the Oklahoma City Dodgers (6-10), Saturday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

Former I-Cub Rob Zastryzny held Iowa scoreless in the second and third but the I-Cubs got to the lefty in the fourth. Ian Happ reached on an error to open the frame and Phillip Evans followed with a single to put a pair on the bases for Trent Giambrone. Giambrone got ahold of the first pitch he saw and sent it deep over the left-field wall for his sixth homer of the season. Hits from Jim Adduci, Trevor Clifton and Dixon Machado, and an error later in the frame led to a five-run inning for the I-Cubs as they batted around.

Iowa extended its lead to 9-0 with a three-run sixth. Ryan Williams, Donnie Dewees and Machado drew consecutive walks and a wild pitch brought in Williams from third. A Field groundout brought in the second run of the frame and Happ capped the inning with an RBI single.

Oklahoma City broke the shutout with a run in the sixth, but Iowa's offense didn't slow. The I-Cubs plated two more in the eighth on a Field RBI single and a wild pitch to solidify the final score.

Rowan Wick took the win after spinning 2.0 shutout frames. Zastryzny was tagged with the loss.
