Player of the day
Cody Bellinger continued his hot play with two solid games that helped the Quakes sweep their doubleheader. Bellinger hit a 3-run home run in the first game and then came right back to double in a run in the second game.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
Oklahoma City gave up their highest amount of runs since April 14th as Fresno (Astros) defeated Oklahoma City 14-1. New Orleans had beaten Oklahoma City 14-8 last April.
The win salvaged a series split, which was also a rarity at home for Oklahoma City as they had won their first five series at home.
Oklahoma City's highlight of the day was the RBI single by Andy Wilkins that tied the game 1-1 in the first inning. After that, it all went downhill.
Trailing 2-1, Fresno had 14 batters bat in fourth inning and nine of them scored; the inning was highlighted by a Nolan Fontana grand slam.
Oklahoma City did have two position players pitch, infielder Elliot Johnson pitched the eighth and retired the side in order and in the ninth, catcher Ralph Henriquez, who walked two but got out of the inning with no runs scored.

Tulsa was off on Monday
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
Rancho Cucamonga scored early in the first game and then scored late in the second game. By doing so, Rancho Cucamonga swept Bakersfield (Mariners) 5-2 and 3-2 to win their seventh straight overall and fourteenth straight at home.
Cody Bellinger's three-run home run in the first gave Rancho Cucamonga the early lead in the first game and pitchers Rudy Owens, Victor Araujo and A.J. Vanegas made it stand up.
Kyle Farmer went 2-for-3 with a run scored and Joey Curletta was 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI.
In the second game, Bellinger doubled in the first run of the game and pitcher Jeff Brigham took it from there.
Brigham pitched six strong innings, allowing an unearned run, two hits, one walk and striking out eight. Rob Rogers gave up a run in the seventh to give Bakersfield a chance to win the game.
But in the bottom of the seventh and two out, Brian Wolfe singled in Dillon Moyer to tie the game. In the eighth, Robbie Garvey singled and was sacrificed to second. A wild pitch moved Garvey to third and Brandon Trinkwon hit a sacrifice fly to win the game.
Low Class-A Great Lakes
Great Lakes led Bowling Green (Rays) early but then Bowling Green scored the last five runs of the game to win 8-4.
Victor Gonzalez gave up five runs and eight hits in five innings. Karch Kowalczyk and J.D. Underwood gave up one and two runs respectively.
Alex Verdugo was 2-for-4 including his first home run of the season. Jacob Scavuzzo also went 2-for-4.
