Triple-A Oklahoma City

Buck Britton had a two-run triple and Austin Barnes doubled and scored twice.
Corey Seager went 4 for 4 but that wasn't enough as the Drillers were doubled up by Corpus Christi Hooks (Astros) 6-3. Seager finished the day hitting .550 (11 for 20) in the young season and he also has four multi-hit games. Brandon Dixon had two hits, a home run and a double.

Despite coming back from a three-run deficit, the Quakes eventually lost in 10 innings, 7-6 to the Inland Empire 66ers (Angels). In the 9th inning, the Quakes tied the game on a Paul Hoenecke single. But in the bottom of the 10th, two Quakes errors led to bases-loaded walk-off single for the 66ers.
Kyle Farmer hit his first home run and went 3 for 5. Joey Curletta also went 3 for 5 with two doubles.
Low Class-A Great Lakes
The Loons and West Michigan Whitecaps (Tigers) were tied 4-4 going to the top of the 9th inning and then Justin Chigbogu hit his first home run that ultimately gave the Loons the 5-4 win.
2014 first round pick Grant Holmes started and he was responsible for all four runs in his 3⅔ innings. Holmes also allowed five hits, two walks and struck out four.
