For the second straight day, the Dodgers' minor league performances were highlighted by the team's top prospect.

Player of the day

One day after hitting his first two home runs in Triple-A, Corey Seager continued his surge going 4-for-5 with two doubles, a walk, two runs scored and an RBI for Oklahoma City on the road against the Salt Lake Bees (Angels). It was the first four-hit game by an Oklahoma City player this season.

After going 1-for-16 in a four-game series in Las Vegas over the weekend, Seager was hitting .238/.281/.286 in 21 games with OKC. After two days in Salt Lake City, Seager is now hitting .280/.323/.409 in Triple-A.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

Seager's big night was just part of the offense for Oklahoma City's 11-5 win over Salt Lake. O`Koyea Dickson had three hits and Kyle Jensen had two hits; both drove in three runs. Chris Reed pitched a scoreless inning of relief, and Josh Ravin pitched two scoreless innings, with two strikeouts. Ravin has 26 strikeouts and eight walks in 17 innings this season.

Yasmani Grandal started his rehab assignment, going 1-for-3 with three walks and three runs scored as the designated hitter, batting second. He is expected to DH for two more games with Oklahoma City before joining the Dodgers in St. Louis.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers got home runs from Travis Witherspoon and Jarek Cunningham, but a three-run double in the eighth by the Midland Rockhounds (Athletics) beat Tulsa 8-6.t

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes were off on Tuesday.

Low Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons got swept in a doubleheader by the Fort Wayne TinCaps (Padres), 4-2 and 4-3. Trevor Oaks allowed four unearned runs in a complete-game six-inning loss, striking out four with no walks in Game 1 (in the minors, doubleheaders feature two games of seven innings each). Josmar Cordero homered for Great Lakes.

Jharel Cotton made his 2015 debut after being sidelined with a broken wrist, and struck out six in 3⅓ innings in Game 2, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk.

Transactions

Triple-A: Outfielder Yadir Drake and infielder Nate Samson were both promoted from Tulsa

Double-A: Activated outfielder Peter Lavin from the disabled list

Class-A: Cotton was activated from the DL in Rancho Cucamonga and sent to Great Lakes; the Loons also activated infielder Faustino Oguisten from the DL, placed pitcher Yeuri Gonzalez on the DL and released infielder Dan Hennigan.

Wednesday morning, pitcher Victor Gonzalez was activated from the DL to start for Great Lakes, and Trevor Oaks was assigned to rookie-level Ogden in a paper move.
