Oklahoma City, Rancho Cucamonga and the Rookie affiliates all won, Great Lakes saw a debut of a 2016 draft pick and a continuation of a hitting streak but they still took a loss.
Player of the day
Right-handed pitcher Jose De Leon struck out 10 in 5⅔ innings in Reno on Friday night. De Leon picked up his second win but maybe more importantly, he threw 102 pitches and pitched at least into the sixth inning for the second straight start.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Dodgers took an early lead and went on to beat the Aces (Diamondbacks) 9-3 at Reno. Jose De Leon started and got the win by allowing just two runs in 5⅔ innings. Luis Avilan, Matt West and Grant Dayton finished up the game.
It was a game that saw a steal of home by Rob Segedin, a two-run home run by Zach Walters and Joc Pederson's first rehab game. Pederson went 1-for-2 with two walks. Pederson is expected to play with Oklahoma City this weekend and then join the Dodgers in Washington DC.
Austin Barnes was 3-for-5 and Charlie Culberson, Micah Johnson and Walters each had two hits.
The Drillers and the Travelers (Angels) were rained out for a second night in a row. The teams will try to play a doubleheader today to get some of these games in.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
The Quakes won 6-1 over the 66ers (Angels) at LoanMart Field. I wrote a separate recap here.
Class-A Great Lakes
The Bees (Angels) beat the Loons 9-3 but there was good news for the Loons on Friday. The first bit of good news was the Midwest League debut of Dodgers' 2nd Round pick, right-handed pitcher Mitchell White. White started and pitched two scoreless innings.
The other bit of good news was Omar Estevez extending his hitting streak to 12 games. Estevez was hitless until the eighth inning and then he led off with a double.
Despite eight hits, including three by Gage Green, the Loons went 0-for-12 with runners in scoring position.
Rookie - Ogden
The Raptors defeated the Osprey (Diamondbacks) 5-2 to sweep the three-game series. Former Tampa Bay draft pick, Josh Kimborowicz started for the Raptors and pitch six innings and gave up two runs, seven hits and struck out 8.
Kimborowicz is 24 years old so his stay in Ogden could be brief.
Mitchell Hansen, Moises Perez and Ibandel Isabel each had two hits and one of Isabel's hit was a home run.
