Craig Kimbrel got the starting nod in his third appearance with the Iowa Cubs.

Due to the impending bad weather, the team wanted to ensure Kimbrel got his work in before the rain fell.

The veteran right-hander tossed 0.2 innings which included a strike out, one hit on one run (home run) and a walk.

Iowa topped Round Rock 6-1 in a rain-shortened, five inning game.
