Alex Guerrero continued his AAA tear on Sunday - Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

Corey Seager and Alex Guerrero combined for 8 hits and 3 homers on Sunday as both the Isotopes and the Quakes won their games

Minor League Player of the DayAlex Guerrero (AAA) - 4 for 5, 2 HR's, 1 2B.  Guerrero edged out Corey Seager for the player of the day award thanks to his two homers.  He has a 1.223 OPS over his last 10 games and is dominating both at home and on the road.

AAA – The Isotopes got a solid start from Zach Lee and another huge game at the plate from Alex Guerrero to dominate the Grizzlies 8 to 2.  Lee struck out 8 over 6 innings of work and allowed just 2 runs on 6 hits in route to his 4th victory of the season.  Yimi Garcia followed with two stellar innings then Jose Dominguez got back on the right track with a perfect 9th.  On offense Guerrero had his second two-homer game in four days and his second 4-hit game in 10 days as he finished the contest 4 for 5 with a pair of long balls and a double.  Joc Pederson drove in two with a couple of singles, while Miguel Rojas went 2 for 3 with a two-bagger of his own.

AA – Erisbel Arruebarrena got things going early with a first inning homer, but that was the extent of the Lookout offense on Sunday as Chattanooga fell to the BayBears (Dbacks) 8 to 1.  The suddenly hot Arruebarrena finished the day 2 for 4 and now has multi-hit games in four of his last five contests.  Brian Cavazos-Galvez and Daniel Mayora both doubled for the only other extra-base hits for the good guys.  Starter Andres Santiago got roughed up as he allowed 2 homers and 6 runs in just 3 innings of work, and his ERA for the season is now above 6.  Craig Stem also had a below average day before Juan Gonzalez and Hector Nelo restored order and finished the game with 4 hitless frames.

HiA – The Quakes got a big game from Corey Seager, but they still needed extra innings to down the JetHawks (Astros) 9 - 8 on an rare walk-off bunt.  We'll get to Seager in a second, but first to the end of the game.  Leo Rodriguez started the bottom of the 10th with his 3rd hit of the game, and infield single that turned into a make-shift double when he ended up on 2nd base due to failed coverage.  James Baldwin tried to sacrifice him over to 3rd, but Lancaster again lost track of Rodriguez who came around to score when nobody covered home plate for the walk-off bunt.  Getting back to Seager, the young shortstop homered for the second day in a row, connected on two doubles and also singled to give him 4 hits in the game.  Corey is now batting a team high .336, which ranks as 4th best in the California League.  Jonathan Garcia also homered, and Brandon Dixon stayed hot with two more hits and 3 runs scored.

LoA – The Loons fell just short on Sunday in a 5 - 4 loss to the Hot Rods (Rays)Zachary Bird didn't have his best stuff as he allowed 9 hits and 5 runs (4 earned) in 5 innings of work.  Brandon Martinez and Jacob Rhame, however, was solid in relief.  Jesmuel Valentin had the big game as the plate as he went 2 for 4 with a triple and 2 runs scored.  Kyle Farmer and Josmar Cordero both doubled to round out the Great Lakes extra base hits in this game.

Coming upGarrett Gould and the Lookouts get things going on Monday with an early game, and they'll be followed later in the day by Fabio Martinez and the Quakes, Luis De Paula and the Loons, and the Isotopes who have yet to name their starter.

Minor League Transactions – AA: Casio Grider was activated from the DL ... The Dodgers traded Double-A infielder Ozzie Martinez to the Braves for left-handed pitcher Adrian Rivero, a soon-to-be 22-year-old Cuban who had 10 walks, eight strikeouts in 13⅓ innings in nine games for Gulf Coast League Braves in 2013.
