Player of the day
Right-handed starter Yaisel Sierra continues to pitch every five days for the Quakes and on Monday, he had a solid game, going six innings, allowing three runs and eight hits while striking out six.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Dodgers lost their second straight to the 51s (Mets) and it wasn't close, losing 12-4 on Monday night. The 51s had 16 hits and 8 walks and took control of the game in the second inning when they scored five runs to take a 6-0 lead.
Jeremy Khert started for the Dodgers and he gave up eight runs in 4⅓ innings. The game moved along until the ninth inning when the 51s scored three runs and then the Dodgers came up with their four runs. As noted by Oklahoma City play-by-play broadcaster, Alex Freedman, many pitches were made in that inning.
