As Casey Stengel once said "Can anybody here play this game?" Uneven efforts were the norm this week, as one or more elements, pitching-hitting-defense, were lacking throughout the system.
However, there are always silver linings. Peoria's Oliver Zapata has extended his hitting streak to seven, and the offenses of both the Chiefs and Daytona seem to be perking up. Tennessee is now second in the Southern League in pitching and third in fielding. Anthony Rizzo is in the top ten in the Pacific Coast League in batting and RBI, and leads the league with seven home runs.

Note: Monday's report will cover games from Wednesday to Saturday.
