Player of the day
Corey Seager hit his first two AAA home runs on Monday night which helped pace the Dodgers to a series-opening win at Salt Lake City. Seager had five home runs in 80 at-bats at Tulsa but had yet to hit one for the Dodgers until Monday.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Dodgers took the first game of their series at Salt Lake City when they defeated the Bees (Angels) 6-1. Deck McGuire made his first start for the Dodgers and McGuire allowed just one run in 6⅔ innings to get the win.
McGuire gave up six hits, two walks and struck out six in his solid start. David Huff finished the game by pitching 2⅓ no-run innings.
Corey Seager started the scoring with his first home run in AAA. Seager went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI. Brian Ward also homered and went 2-for-3 and Darwin Barney went 2-for-4.
Different day, same story. Monday's game was rained out and a doubleheader will be played when Northwest Arkansas (Royals) visit Tulsa in June.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
The Quakes left Rancho Cucamonga riding a four-game series sweep but now they can think about a seven-game losing streak after the Giants beat the Quakes 6-2.
Erik Bedard made his first rehab start for the Quakes and he allowed three runs in the first inning. Bedard would pitch three additional innings and kept the Giants off the board but the damage was done in the first.
Michael Johnson gave up three more runs to put the game out of reach.
The Quakes offense could only produce four singles and five walks and no batter had more than one hit.
Low Class-A Great Lakes
Josmar Cordero made his second appearance as a pitcher on Sunday. After reading that, It should not be a surprise that the Loons lost to the Captains (Indians) 15-6. And this was a game that the Loons once led 5-4.
Grant Holmes made the start and he pitched three innings, allowing two runs, two hits, two walks and five strikeouts. I wrote three innings because after that, there was an hour and twenty six minute rain delay.
After that delay, it became a bullpen game and the Loons had some issues with that kind of game on Sunday.
Four Loons pitchers allowed 11 runs in the next 5⅓ before Josmar Cordero entered the game to pitch in the ninth inning. Cordero gave up two runs in ⅔ inning.
Jimmy Allen went 3-for-5 with two runs scored. Along with pitching, Cordero had two hits.
Triple-A: Pitcher Chris Reed activated from temporarily inactive list, placed pitcher David Aardsma on temporary inactive list.
Class-A: Pitcher Erik Bedard assigned to Rancho Cucamonga from Extended Spring Training.
