Tulsa wins 4-2 behind a big game for Willie Calhoun, Oklahoma City and Rancho Cucamonga lose leads and Great Lakes matinee ends with them being shutout.

Player of the day

Wille Calhoun had a big day at the plate, going 4-for-4 with a home run and two doubles.  Calhoun scored two runs and had two RBI.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Grizzlies (Astros) came back from six-run deficit to defeat the Dodgers 8-7 on a ninth inning walk-off hit.  The comeback should not diminish the fine start by Jharel Cotton, who was originally scheduled to pitch on Tuesday but he was moved up when Mike Bolsinger was recalled by the Dodgers.

Cotton pitched five innings, he allowed one run on one hit, a solo home run, walked one and struck out 10.  After that, the bullpen was unable to hold onto a six-run lead.  Matt West gave up two runs and Casey Fien gave up four runs.  Jordan Schafer made his AAA debut and pitched a scoreless eighth inning.

Jacob Rhame came into a tie game in the ninth and he had one out to get with the bases loaded.  Unfortunately a walk-off single came instead and the Dodgers lost.

Corey Brown, Rob Segedin, O'Koyea Dickson and Zach Walters each had two hits.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers defeated the Naturals (Royals) 4-2 and Trevor Oaks and Willie Calhoun were the starts of the game.  Trevor Oaks pitched seven innings and allowed a run, five hits and struck out two.  Rob Rogers pitched the final two innings for the save.

Willie Calhoun went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a home run, Kyle Farmer was 2-for-3 with a walk.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes lost only their second series of the season, the Giants won by a 4-2 score.  Andrew Sopko went 5⅔ innigs and gave up two runs.  Kyle Hooper allowed two-unearned runs and Karch Kowalczyk finished out the game.

Johan Mieses hit his fifth home run of the season.

The Giants retired nine out of the last ten batters.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons could not score against the  Lugnuts (Blue Jays) on Monday.  The final score was 3-0 shutout by the Lugnuts. The Loons could only get seven batters on base today and they went 1-for-4 with runners in scoring position.

Nolan Long started and pitched six innings, gave up two runs (one earned), four hits, two walks and struck out six.
