A split on Monday, Tulsa won a close one while Oklahoma City rallies only to lose big in the end.

Player Of The Day

Willie Calhoun hit his second home run of the season in a four-run fourth inning on Monday night.  The three-run shot gave the Drillers the lead and ultimately the game.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

At the end of the second inning, the Dodgers were down by five.  The Dodgers would tie the score but in the end, the Cubs beat the Dodgers 13-6 in Iowa.

All four Dodger pitchers gave up at least a run.  Starter Sam LeCure gave up five runs in five innings.  Sean Burnett followed with a one-run inning.  Then Jacob Rhame, who would eventually take the loss, gave up four runs in one inning of work.  Chin-hui Tsao finished up by giving up three runs in his inning.

Austin Barnes was 3-for-4 with two runs scored; Corey Brown hit a home run, a double and drove in four runs. Rob Segedin hit his fourth home run of the season.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers came back to take the lead and then held on to beat the Travelers (Angels) 4-3 at ONEOK Field in Tulsa.  While Chris Anderson started and got the win, it was the bullpen that shined from the mound.

Rob Rogers, Jordan Schafer and Caleb Dirks combined to pitch four scoreless innings and give up only two hits, one walk and strike out 7.  Anderson pitched five innings, he allowed three runs, three hits, six walks and two strikeouts.

Trailing 1-0 going to the fourth inning, the Drillers scored their first run on a error made on a grounder by Kyle Farmer.  After two outs and with two runners on, Willie Calhoun hit a three-run home run to take the lead.
