Led by Kyle Schwarber and Dan Vogelbach, the Cubs' Nos. 7 and 11 prospects, Class A Advanced Daytona defeated Dunedin, 11-1, Tuesday in Game 1 of their Florida State League semifinals series.

Vogelbach scored the first run of the game in the second inning and then built on the lead with a two-out, two-run homer in the third. Schwarber broke the game open the next inning with a two-out, opposite-field grand slam, which gave Daytona a 9-0 lead.

Schwarber, ranked No. 75 on MLBPipeline.com's Top 100 Prospects list, finished the game 1-for-5 with a run and four RBIs. He primarily has played left field since the Cubs made him the fourth overall pick in the 2014 First-Year Player Draft, but served Tuesday as Daytona's designated hitter.

Vogelbach went 2-for-5 with a double, two runs and two RBIs. Outfielder Billy McKinney, the Cubs' No. 8 prospect, added two hits and two runs.

The best-of-three series continues Wednesday with Game 2 at Dunedin. First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET. If necessary, Game 3 would be played Thursday at Dunedin at 6:30 p.m.
