The Dodgers' minor league performance on Tuesday was highlighted by a doubleheader shutout sweep by Double-A Tulsa.

Player of the day

Cuban import Hector Olivera hit his first professional home run, a grand slam in the first game of a doubleheader for Double-A Tulsa off Mark Peterson.

Olivera was 3-for-3 and played second base in the first game. He didn't play in the second game.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

Scott Schebler went 2-for-4 with a home run and a double in OKC's 6-3 win over the Round Rock Express (Rangers). Chin-hui Tsao picked up his second save.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers got seven-inning complete-game shutouts from both Mickey Storey and Jeremy Kehrt on Tuesday to complete a doubleheader sweep, beating the Northwest Arkansas Naturals (Royals) 5-0 and 2-0. Storey struck out 10 in Game 1, and Kehrt struck out seven in Game 2.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

Brock Stewart struck out nine in five innings, and the Quakes got home runs from second baseman Brandon Trinkwon and designated hitter Tyler Ogle, but two runs in the ninth gave the Modesto Nuts (Rockies) a 5-4 walk-off win.
