Strong offensive performances highlighted Saturday for the Dodgers' minor league affiliates.

Player of the day

Kyle Garlick homered and had three hits in the Quakes' win at Visalia. The 28th-round pick in this year's draft has hit since day one as a pro, and sense joining Class-A Rancho Cucamonga is 15-for-34 (.441) with four home runs in nine games.

Garlick is hitting .411 (39-for-95) over his last 25 games, between Great Lakes and Rancho Cucamonga.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

Eric Surkamp struck out seven and allowed one run in six innings in OKC's 5-2 win over the Reno Aces (Diamondbacks). O`Koyea Dickson was 2-for-3, and Andy Wilkins had an RBI double.

Jose Tabata entered the game late and added a two-run home run in the seventh inning for some breathing room. Since joining the Dodgers organization, Tabata is hitting .319/.373/.511 with three doubles and two home runs in 51 plate appearances over 17 games.

Double-A Tulsa

A five-run third inning proved to be too much for the Drillers in a 7-4 loss to the Midland RockHounds (Athletics). Eric Stults, fresh off the disabled list, allowed seven runs in six innings to take the loss. Yadir Drake went 3-for-5, and Lars Anderson went 2-for-4 with a double, with each driving in a run.


Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

In addition to Garlick's offensive production, the Quakes also got a home run from Devan Ahart, who was 3-for-5 in a 7-2 win over the Visalia Rawhide (Diamondbacks). Scott Barlow struck out seven in six innings, allowing one run for the win.

Low Class-A Great Lakes

J.D. Underwood allowed three runs on five hits in the eighth inning, turning a 2-0 Loons lead into a 3-2 loss to the Dayton Dragons (Reds). Logan Landon, the Dodgers' 10th-round pick this year, was 2-for-3 with a walk.

Grant Holmes was limited to two innings, striking out four with one walk. Holmes has thrown 96⅓ innings in 22 starts in 2015. The 2014 first-round pick threw 48⅓ innings as a professional last year, after throwing 40 innings during his senior season in high school.


Rookie-level Ogden

Matt Jones was 3-for-5 and homered twice in the Raptors' 5-4 win over the Orem Owls (Angels).

"The first one they shifted pull on me, so I was like, ‘Well, here comes a fastball away’ and it happened right there and I put a pretty good swing on it," Jones told reporters after the game, per the team. "The ball jumps out of this yard, so it felt pretty good."

Jordan Paroubeck was 2-for-4 with a triple, a walk and two runs scored in the win. Michael Medina, in his first game since July 23, missing 24 games with a hamstring injury, was 1-for-4 with a double as the designated hitter.

Ogden has won 12 times in its last 15 games.


Rookie-level Ariona

Right fielder Mitch Hansen reached base four times in the AZL Dodgers' 9-8 loss to the AZL Angels. Hansen, the Dodgers' second-round pick in 2015, had a slow start in the Arizona League but was 2-for-2 with a double and two walks on Saturday, and in his last 14 games is hitting .333/.385/.500 with four doubles, two triples and 12 runs scored


Triple-A: It was promotion Saturday, with Chris Anderson and Jharel Cotton getting promoted from Double-A Tulsa, along with reliever Juan Jaime as well. Ramon Troncoso and Randy Fontanez were both placed on the seven-day disabled list, and pitcher Grant Dayton was sent to Tulsa.

Double-A: Stults and Jairo Heredia were activated from the DL.
