Rancho Cucamonga and all the Dodger Rookie affiliates won on Thursday.  Oklahoma City and Great Lakes saw their games slip away late while Tulsa's game was postponed due to rain.

Player of the day

Right-handed pitcher Imani Abdullah pitched five innings and allowed just a run on five hits and struck out three.  Abdullah also has a 13/1 strikeout to walk ratio (39 strikeouts with only three walks).

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers and the Aces (Diamondbacks) were tied 2-2 going to the bottom of the eighth.  Then an error by Rob Segedin helped the Aces score two runs and the Aces won the first game of their series by a 4-2 score.

The late-inning loss should not diminish the start by Brock Stewart.  Stewart struck out eight in six innings.  He also allowed two runs and eight hits.  Mike Bolsinger took the tough loss.

Corey Brown hit his 12th home run and Micah Johnson drove in the then tying run in the eighth inning.

Double-A Tulsa

Mike Ahmed hit his 10th home run.  Edwin Rios was 1-for-3 with an RBI.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons led 5-1 going to the bottom of the seventh but then back to back three-run innings and the Bees (Angels) won 7-6 over the Loons.

Jared Walsh capped a 4-for-4 game with a three-run home run off Angel German to take the lead.
