Dodgers minor league report May 20: Josmar Cordero powers Loons to victory

Josmar Cordero went 3 for 4 with a pair of homers for the Loons in their win on Tuesday

Minor League Player of the DayJosmar Cordero (LoA) - 3 for 4, 2 HR's, 1 Walk.  Cordero played a big part in the Loons win on Tuesday as he connected on his first two homers of the season.  After a breakout campaign in the DSL in 2012 as a part time catcher, Josmar stayed under the radar in 2013 for the Arizona Dodgers.  While he's played in just 11 games thus far in 2014 and is now strictly a first baseman, he has shown some real promise at the plate with a 1.126 OPS and a .432 average.

AAA – The Isotopes fought hard to win on Tuesday, but were eventually beaten by the Bees (Angels) 7 to 4.  Starter Carlos Frias got roughed up for the second outing in a row as he allowed 8 hits and 7 runs over 4 frames.  His relievers were solid, however, as Matt Magill threw 2.2 innings of hitless relief while walking a pair and Colt Hynes followed with 1.1 scoreless frames.  At the plate Clint Robinson went 2 for 4 with a couple of doubles, while Carlos Triunfel had a two bagger and a single in 4 at bats.  Joc Pederson went 1 for 4 with a walk and Alex Guerrero stayed hot with two singles...and oh yeah if you haven't heard he was in a bit of a scuffle and could be out a while.

AA – Off day

HiA – The Quakes lost the opening game of their 3-game series with the 66ers (Angels) on Tuesday 5 to 3.  Despite the defeat Corey Seager continued his torrid hitting as he went 2 for 4 with a double and 3 RBI's and now has 6 multi-hit games in his last 10 contests.  Nobody else on offense had an extra base hit or a multi-hit game for Rancho.  Starter Chris Anderson lost his 4th game of the year after allowing 4 runs on 7 hits and 3 walks.  He struck out 6 in 5 innings.  Geoff Brown tossed the final 3 frames and punched out 5.

LoA – The Loons used two homers from Josmar Cordero and a RBI groundout in the 11th inning to slay the Dragons (Reds) 3 to 2.  Cordero, who went 3 for 4, has gotten off to a hot start for Great Lakes, but these were his first two long balls for the season.  Joey Curletta doubled, but the rest of the offense combined for just two singles.  Starter Scott Barlow threw well as he allowed just 2 runs over 6 innings to lower his ERA below 3.00.  His bullpen was even better as a quartet of relievers combined for 5 shutout innings to secure the extra inning victory.  Mark Pope got the win with 2 scoreless frames while Jacob Rhame recorded his 2nd save of the year.

Coming upJulio Urias highlights Wednesday's action as he throws for the Quakes, while Red Patterson will take the mound for the Isotopes.  Nick Struck gets the ball for the Lookouts and Greg Harris will start for the Loons.
