Player of the day
It was a quiet day for Dodger minor league prospects on Saturday, but Cody Bellinger gets this award with a 2-for-4 effort that included a RBI double. With the two-hit performance Cody extended his multi-hit streak to four games, and he is now hitting .292 for the season.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
Oklahoma City scored an early run in the bottom of the first, but were shutout the rest of the way in a 2-1 loss to the Grizzlies (Astros). Andy Wilkins drove in the early score with a RBI single, and he also doubled later in the game. Nobody else did much at the dish, and Corey Seager saw his average fall to .300 with an 0-for-4 game that included 3 strikeouts.
On the mound Deck McGuire threw seven solid innings in the loss, allowing just four hits and two runs. Ryan Buchter was great in relief with a couple of scoreless frames.
The Drillers managed just four singles in a 6-2 loss to the RoughRiders (Rangers). Daniel Mayora was 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored, and his .273 average was tops in the Tulsa lineup that included four players that are hitting below .200.
On the mound P.J. Walters gave up six runs over five innings, but only three of those runs were earned. Jorge De Leon and Ralston Cash tossed the final three frames and did not allow a hit.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
Low Class-A Great Lakes
The game between the Loons and the Hot Rods (Rays) was suspended after three and a half innings due to rain with Great Lakes leading 2-1. Grant Holmes had started the game and struck out four over his three frames, allowing a solo homer among four hits. Jacob Scavuzzo had the only offensive highlight so far with an RBI double.
Triple A: OKC activated catcher Ralph Henriquez while Austin Chubb was placed on the DL. Chris Heisey was also optioned back to Triple-A.
Double A: Eric Stults was outrighted to Tulsa
