The Iowa Cubs and Colorado Springs Sky Sox were rained out in the final game of a four-game series at Security Service Field. The game will be made up as part of a double-header on June 26 in Colorado Springs.
Iowa, currently on a season-best five game winning streak, comes home to open a four-game series against the Omaha Storm Chasers , triple-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, on Monday evening at Principal Park. A few notes as the homestand begins:
Arismendy Alcantara is the hottest hitter for Iowa. Alcantara is hitting .349 in his last ten games, including a five-hit game on Saturday. Alcantara leads or is tied for the team lead in at bats, hits, triples, home runs, RBI, total bases, stolen bases, and slugging percentage. Alcantara leads the PCL in triples.
Logan Watkins extended his hitting streak to 12 games on Saturday and holds the current longest streak in the PCL.
Iowa has a one game lead over the Oklahoma City Redhawks in the PCL American North division.
The Storm Chasers have a familiar face on the roster. Long time Chicago Cubs farmhand Casey Coleman returns to Iowa after signing with the Kansas City Royals organization on April 15. Coleman began the season with Iowa but was released on April 14.
After a short, four-game homestand, Iowa will hit the road for an eight-game road trip against the Nashville Sounds and New Orleans Zephyrs.
