Player of the day

While it was the Loons offense that gave the club the late victory, it was four solid innings of relief work from Jeff Brigham that kept Great Lakes in the game.  In relief of Grant Holmes, Brigham allowed just two hits while punching out five.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The game was postponed due to rain, and will be made up on Monday as part of a doubleheader.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers went down quietly on Saturday as they fell to the Missions (Padres) 5-2.  The Tulsa offense was actually shutout through eight innings, but a rally in the ninth made the game at least somewhat interesting as the tying run actually was at the plate when the game ended.  Corey Seager had another fine game as he doubled twice, although the 2-for-5 effort actually lowered is average to .514.

Jeremy Kehrt allowed all five runs on nine hits over just four frames, but the bullpen was extremely effective as a trio of relievers combined for four shutout innings.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes beat the Lake Elsinore Storm (Padres) 13-3 behind several strong offensive performances. Craig Minami covered the game and wrote his recap Saturday night.

Low Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons were down three heading into the ninth, but a late rally allowed Great Lakes to come away with a 5-4 victory over the Cubs.  Yadir Drake's third hit of the game is what started the comeback, and that was followed by a base knock by Justin Chigbogu.  A Jacob Scavuzzo double and a Mike Ahmed single plated the first two runs of the inning, then a throwing error by the Cubs allowed the tying and winning runs to score.

On the mound starter Grant Holmes struck out six over five frames and walked just one, but he also gave up five hits and three runs.  Player of the day Jeff Brigham continued the Loons streak of excellent relief with four solid innings to earn the victory.


Triple-A: O'Koyea Dickson was placed on the seven-day disabled list with a shoulder sprain, while Lars Anderson was promoted from Tulsa.  David Huff also accepted his outright assignment to Oklahoma City.

Double-A: Paul Hoenecke was moved up from the Quakes to take the spot of Anderson. a Webster Rivas was also placed on the DL while Shawn Zarraga was added to the active roster.

Hi-A: Delvis Morales was activated from the DL to replace Hoenecke.
