Player of the day
On a day when no Dodger minor league affiliate won, Great Lakes starting pitcher Trevor Oaks had another solid start. Oaks pitched his second consecutive eight-inning outing, he gave up three runs, six hits, one walk and struck out seven.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
All good things must come to an end and on Monday, it was Oklahoma City's streak of winning series. They had played seven series and won all of them. It looked like that would continue after Oklahoma City won the first two games against Omaha (Royals). But Omaha turned the tables and swept Oklahoma City convincingly 10-0 and 10-4 while amassing 34 hits against Dodger pitching.
In Game 1, Scott Baker was unable to get out of the fourth inning, in 3⅓ innings, Baker gave up nine runs, 12 hits and one walk.
Darnell Sweeney and Buck Britton each had two hits but the Dodgers offense was punchless as they were struck out 10 times.
In Game 2, Joe Wieland completed four innings, gave up seven runs, 11 hits, and one walk. Old friend Joe Blanton was winning Omaha pitcher.
Darnell Sweeney had two more hits, going two-for-four with his second home run. Austin Barnes also homered and Scott Schebler went two-for-three.
Tulsa scored two runs on Sunday and had they repeated that, they might have won. Instead, Springfield (Cardinals) shutout Tulsa 1-0.
Chris Anderson gave up the one run in his five innings. Anderson was wild, giving up five hits and five walks while striking out five. Blake Smith, Relievers Ralston Cash and Jeremy Horst were able to keep Springfield off the board.
Tulsa had eight hits, Jarek Cunningham and Luis Mateo each had two hits. Yadir Drake doubled in five at bats. But they were unable to score and dropped a tough one.
Low Class-A Great Lakes
Great Lakes starter Trevor Oaks took a 1-1 tie to the eighth inning but Dayton (Reds) was able to push across two runs and win 3-1.
After one out in the eighth, Oaks gave up a walk and then a bunt single, an infield single and a fielder's choice scored two runs.
Great Lakes has had their own issues scoring this season, Monday night's game was the 13th time they have scored two or less runs.
Trevor Oaks allowed all three runs in his eight innings of work, Karch Kowalczyk pitched a scoreless ninth.
The Loons only run scored when Josmar Cordero singled in Jacob Scavuzzo to tie the game at one in the sixth inning.
