Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers defeated the Express (Rangers) 8-2 and the Dodgers took control of this game pretty early.  Brock Stewart won his third game in three starts and Sam LeCure and Matt West finished up the game for the Dodgers.

After trailing 1-0 in the first, the Dodgers scored three times to take a lead they never gave up on Friday.  With one out, Charlie Culberson singled and Zach Walters walked.

Corey Brown singled in Culberson and then both Walters and Brown would score on Chris Taylor's double, that made the game 3-1 and the Dodgers never looked back.

Four Dodgers had two hits, Micah Johnson, Culberson, Walters and Brown.

Double-A Tulsa

The Naturals (Royals) scored four runs in the second inning, which was on their way to a 7-1 win over the Drillers.  Driller starting pitcher Tim Shibuya had a poor outing, he gave up six runs, nine hits, walked one and struck out two.

The Naturals had 14 hits, including two home runs while the Drillers only had five hits and a run.

Alex Verdugo had two singles in an otherwise quiet night for the Drillers.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Mavericks (Rangers) once led 8-0 over the Quakes which was on their way to a 10-4 win.  High Desert had 18 hits and just one walk, while the Quakes produced five hits and three walks.

Tommy Bergjans and Luis DePaula combined to give up most of the runs.  Bergjans pitched 4⅓ innings and gave up five runs and nine hits.  Luis DePaula finished up the final ⅔ inning, giving up the final three runs in the fifth inning.

DePaula would hit Travis Demeritte with a pitch to start the sixth inning which led to this bench-clearing incident:

For the Quakes, Julian Leon hit his fifth home run of the season and Matt Beaty had two hits.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons took a 4-0 lead and held on to beat the Captains (Indians) 4-3.  Loons pitchers combined to strike out 15 while walk only one.
