Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs L 0-1 @ Iowa Cubs
Jake Marisnick, CF: 1-for-4
Andrew Heaney, SP: 7 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 8 K
New Orleans suffered a tough loss in Iowa on Tuesday. Despite a fantastic outing from Andrew Heaney, the Zephyrs only managed to reach base seven times against the Cubs pitching. In my opinion, this was by far Heaney's best start of the season, regardless of level. Heaney shut down and dominated a lineup including Kris Bryant, Javier Baez, Brett Jackson and Matt Szczur. If you are looking for a turnaround point in Heaney's season after his rough month of July, this might be it.
