Minor League Player of the Day: Ross Stripling allowed two runs on five hits in six innings, while striking out seven batters and walking none.
Triple-A: Both Matt Kemp and Scott Van Slyke continued their rehab assignments on Sunday. This time each of the rehabbing Dodgers hit a double, but it came in an Isotopes 10-7 loss to Round Rock (Rangers) in Albuquerque. Despite needing just three outs to close out a 7-3 victory, the Isotopes allowed seven runs in the top of the 9th inning and were unable to recover. Josh Wall took the loss, allowing six runs on four hits and two walks while recording just one out. A bunch of familiar names to Dodgers fans also took part in the game, including Dee Gordon (0-for-5) and Alex Castellanos (1-for-4).
Double-A: The Lookouts received three solo home runs and it proved to be enough against Tennessee (Cubs) behind Ross Stripling's fantastic outing in which he allowed just two runs. Chattanooga jumped out to a 2-0 lead before Tennessee tied it up in the sixth. But, Jan Vazquez would homer in the next inning, giving the Lookouts a lead they wouldn't give up. Michael Thomas would pick up Stripling after his six inning effort, tossing three innings of perfect baseball.
High Class-A: The Lancaster JetHawks (Astros) seem to have the Quakes number as the Dodgers' High-A affiliate once again fell by the score of 12-6 on Sunday. It was Rancho's sixth straight loss, who remain win-less in the second half of the season. The Quakes received multi-hit efforts from three players, including three hits from Noel Cuevas, but the offense wasn't the problem. Instead it was the pitching as starter Gustavo Gomez couldn't keep the Quakes in the game, allowing nine runs on eight hits and four walks in 3 1/3 innings of work.
Low Class-A: Runs weren't at a premium between South Bend (Diamondbacks) and Great Lakes on Sunday as the two teams managed to score a combined 17 runs. Fortunately for the Loons, they came out on top and were able to pick up the pitching. Top prospects in the organization continued to shine, too. It wasn't pitching prodigy Julio Urias' finest outing, but the teenager threw another 4 1/3 innings while striking out four batters. Meanwhile, Corey Seager homered yet again, giving him three homers in the past four games.
Rookie (Ogden): Ogden cruised to a win on Sunday while their pitching and hitting dominated, defeating Idaho Falls (Royals) by the score of 10-1. All but one starter, Jesus Valdez, recorded at least one hit, while Jake Chaplin reached base four times (three via base on balls). The Raptors jumped out to a 6-0 lead and that proved to be more than enough behind Victor Araujo, who took the mound. The starter allowed just one run on three hits and a walk in six innings of work while striking out seven batters.
Rookie (Arizona): Despite scoring in just one frame, the AZL Dodgers still put together a comfortable 4-1 win against the AZL Indians behind nine innings of fantastic work from the pitching staff. The one run allowed was an unearned run that occurred when Nelson Sandoval was on the mound. He allowed three hits and one walk while striking out four in three innings of work. Josmar Cordero's double in the sixth proved to be the difference maker as the extra base hit plated two.
Coming up: Monday will feature one of the Dodgers top prospects in Zachary Bird, who will make his seventh start for the Great Lakes Loons. Rancho Cucamonga will begin a new series, this time against Inland Empire, as the Quakes continue to look to win their first game of the second half. Meanwhile, Chattanooga will look to continue their hot streak and extend their win streak to four games on Monday.
