Cascade native Colin Rea suffered just his second loss on the mound this season yesterday when the Iowa Cubs lost at home to Round Rock 8-3. Rea lasted 4 2/3 innings giving up seven runs, four of them earned on seven hits. The right hander walked four hitters and struck out 1 while falling to 8-2 on the season with his season E.R.A. now climbing to 3.56.
Rea’s next scheduled start will be Friday night at home as the I-Cubs host Omaha.
