Zach Lee continues his rehab in Quakes 8-3 win

Eric Stephen

Player of the day

Zach Lee likely had the most important game for the organization on Monday as he made 76 pitches and went five innings in his first rehab start for the Quakes. Lee could be an weekend option for the Dodgers though that is unknown at this time.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers had an 11-game lead over the Storm Chasers (Royals) when their series started on Saturday. It is now down to eight games after the Storm Chasers 10-7 win over the Dodgers.

Brandon Beachy made his fifth rehab start and had his longest stint. In six innings, Beachy gave up five runs (three earned), nine hits, a hit by pitch, two walks and struck out five. Beachy is lined up to make his final start this weekend before his rehab period closes.

Matt West followed Beachy and gave up four runs in his one inning. Randy Fontanez restored some order though he gave up a run in his two innings.

Home runs by Andy Wilkins, Austin Barnes and O'Koyea Dickson paced the Dodger offense. Carl Crawford made his second rehab start and was 1-for-3 with two runs scored and a walk.


Double-A Tulsa

Trailing by one run in the seventh inning, in a span of three batters, the Drillers scored two runs and that proved to be enough for the 3-2 win over the Missions (Padres).

In the bottom of the seventh and one out, Jareck Cunningham singled. Peter Lavin tripled home Cunningham and Jeremy Rathjen followed with a single to score Lavin.

Three Driller relievers held down the Missions, Jacob Rhame, Ryan Dennick and Jerermy Horst gave up no runs in their combined 3⅓ IP. Rhame would get the win and Horst got his ninth save.


Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes beat  66ers (Angels) 8-3 to take the series finale and avoid being swept. Zach Lee made his second start and first with the Quakes after being out with numbness in his fingers. Lee pitched 5 innings and allowed two runs, four hits, a walk and struck out two.

Rob Rogers and A.J. Vanegas finished the game for the Quakes.

The Quakes had three home runs, Travis Witherspoon hit his first, Paul Hoenecke hit his seventh and Cody Bellinger hit his 16th. Erisbel Arruebarrena was 3-for-5 with a run scored.

Low Class-A Great Lakes

Two big innings were all the Loons needed for their 9-5 wins over the Lugnuts (Blue Jays). Alex Verdugo and Kyle Garlick each had three hits in the win.

With the help of two Lugnut errors, the Loons scored four runs in the first inning. Verdugo singled and would score on Garlick's single. Justin Chigbogu drove in a run on a sacrifice fly. A single by Spencer Navin would drive home Garlick. And an error on Julian Leon's drive to center scored Navin.

The Lugnuts scored three runs to make it a one-run game but then in the fifth, the Loons had five consecutive hits to start the inning and seven hits overall in that frame. Doubles by Jimmy Allen, Verdugo, and Chigbogu highlighted that five run inning.

Trevor Oaks allowed 10 baserunners (eight hits and two walks) and four runs (two earned) in his 5⅔ IP but Oaks still got the win. Bubby Rossman picked up his fourth save.


Rookie Ogden

The Raptors scored five runs in the seventh to tie the game and then Matt Jones hit a walk-off single in the tenth for the 8-7 win over the Rockies.

In the tenth inning, Willie Calhoun led off with a single and Michael Medina followed with a base hit.  Jones then grounded a base hit to center to score Calhoun.

The Rockies took a 7-2 lead to the bottom of the seventh and after a lead-off single, the Rockies turned a double play on Yensys Capellan's grounder to second. But after a Ryan Scott single, two walks and hit by pitch produced a run. Then an error scored two more runs. Medina would tie the game with a two-run double.

Colin Hering, Juan Jaime and Andrew Istler each struck out two and pitched a scoreless inning and Istler picked up the win for his efforts.


AZL Dodgers

The Indians scored four runs (one earned) in the seventh that helped them to a 6-0 victory over the Dodgers. The Dodgers could not do anything offensively and compounded that by committing six errors.

In the key seventh inning, the Dodgers committed two errors, allowed three stolen bases, threw a wlid pitch and had a passed ball. The Indians only needed two singles to score four runs.

The Dodgers had only four base runners on three singles and struck out 15 times while walking just once.

DSL Dodgers

The Dodgers committed five errors and gave up five unearned runs leading to a Red Sox 8-4 win. The Dodgers led 1-0 before giving up eight runs. The Dodgers scored three runs in the ninth inning but that was too little, too late to effect the outcome.

Dodger pitchers Felix Lacen and Johan Diaz each pitched 3⅓ innings and gave up four runs. Lacen gave up three earned runs while Diaz allowed no earned runs.

Jimy Perez and Keibert Ruiz each had two hits including a double.


Triple-A: Los Angeles optioned pitcher Daniel Coulombe and selected contract of pitcher Eric Surkamp; activated infielder Elliot Johnson from the 7-day disabled list; placed outfielder Scott Schebler on the 7-day disabled list retroactive to July 4, 2015; pitcher Randy Fontanez assigned from Tulsa.

Double-A: Pitcher Ramon Benjamin assigned from Rancho Cucamonga; activated pitcher Jairo Heredia from the 7-day disabled list.

Class-A: Pitcher Zach Lee assigned from Oklahoma City Dodgers.
