Chiefs 9, Cougars 0
Recap: With a pair of Cubs batting in the top spot of the lineup — outfielder Ryan Sweeney and infielder Luis Valbuena — the Kane County Cougars were still shut down Saturday by the Peoria Chiefs in front of a season-high 12,335 fans at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark. Sweeney, working back from a fractured rib, went 1-for-4. Valbuena, on the mend from a strained oblique, went 1-for-3. Cory Jones (8-2) earned the win, allowing only four hits and fanning five for Peoria.
Records: Cougars 53-80, 23-44 in the second half; Chiefs 68-67, 29-38.
