Player of the day

19-year old Ariel Sandoval blasted a pair of homers as part of his four-hit game on Sunday to lead his team to a victory. The young center fielder is now batting .343 for the season over 27 games.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers put up a four spot in the sixth inning and that all they needed to defeat the Express (Rangers) 4 for 2. Corey Seager plated one of the runs with a RBI ground out, then O'Koyea Dickson had the big hit with a two-RBI double.

On the mound Joe Wieland picked up his first win in over a month after allowing seven hits and two run over 5⅔ frames. The OKC bullpen then shut down the opposition for the rest of the game, with Juan Gonzalez putting up the most impressive performance with a two inning save that lowered his ERA to 0.95 for the season.


Double-A Tulsa

Julio Urias took the loss in his return to Tulsa as the Drillers fell to the Travelers (Angels) 4 to 1. Urias did not walk a batter during his five innings of work, but he did permit five hits, including a homer, and four runs while punching out three. Ralston Cash and Ryan Dennick finished the game with a couple of shutout innings each, but the offense wasn't able to make up the difference as they only accumulated four hits. Peter Lavin went 2-for-4 with a double and Ronald Torreyes drove in the only Tulsa run with a single.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes won as slug-fest on Sunday, defeating the 66ers (Angels) 15 to 10. Pretty much everyone contributed in this game, and Joey Curletta led the way with three-run homer, a double, and five RBI's. Cody Bellinger also homered and knocked in three, while Jacob Scavuzzo was a perfect 4-for-4 and fell a homer shy of the cycle.

Despite the win Rancho struggled on the mound, starting with the rehabbing Carlos Frias who recorded just two outs before being removed from the game after allowing three hits and two runs. Zack Bird was credited with the win even through he gave up six runs in  2⅓ innings of work.

Low Class-A Great Lakes

Kyle Garlick was the second Dodger farmhand to fall just short of the cycle as he was 4-for-5 with a homer and a double, but the Loons still fell to the Captains (Indians) 10 to 6. Matt Beaty also homered in the game for Great Lakes while Justin Chigbogu continued his strong month of July with a 2-for-4 effort that included a two-bagger and a RBI.

Starter Matt Shelton took the loss after getting lit up for seven his and eight runs in just three innings. One bright spot was Cameron Palmer in relief as he tossed three shutout frames and gave up just one hit.


Rookie-level Ogden

The Raptors fought off a late comeback bid by the Rockies to pull out a 5 to 4 victory on Sunday. Clint Freeman came into the game in the bottom of the ninth to try and preserve Ogden's two run lead, and while he did allow a run and let the tying run to reach third base, he was able to shut the door. His save gave Colin Hering the victory after he pitched 1⅔ hitless frames. Starter Ivan Vieitez gave up six hits and three runs in his four innings of work.

At the dish Scott De Jong went 2-for-5 with a double while both Garrett Kennedy and Gage Green also had two hits a piece and each drove in a run.


Rookie-level Arizona

The Arizona Dodgers doubled up on the White Sox, winning 8 to 4. Player of the day Sandoval provided most of the offense for the Dodgers as he clubbed a pair of homers during his four hit, four RBI day. Jared Walker knocked in three runs himself with a double and a single while Gersel Pitre was a perfect 3-for-3 at the dish.

Starter Caleb Ferguson did not have a good game as he allowed three runs in 2⅔ innings, but the 6'8" Miguel Urena threw well in relief. Shea Spitzbarth recorded the first win of his minor league career and struck out three.
