Isaac Ends Iowa Season Early

The Iowa Cubs saw their season come to an end four days early because of Hurricane Isaac.

The I-Cubs were to play their final four games in New Orleans starting Friday. The team was playing in Nashville on Thursday.

“We saw the headline in the paper showing a guy with water up to his shoulders and thought `there’s no way we can play,’ ” infielder Adrian Cardenas said.

The games were indeed canceled, ending Iowa’s season as of Friday. Cardenas is among the September call-ups to the major league club. He and outfielders Tony Campana and Dave Sappelt joined the team Saturday. Pitcher Miguel Socolovich will join the team Sunday and pitcher Chris Rusin will rejoin the team on Tuesday with recently acquired catcher Anthony Recker.
