Rancho Cucamonga, Ogden and one of the Dominican Dodger teams won while Tulsa, Great Lakes and the other Rookie league teams lose.  OKC Dodgers game postponed due to rain.

Player of the day

Edwin Rios was 3-for-5 with two home runs, a double and two walks in the Quake's 16-5 win.  Rios also scored five runs.  The 22-year old continues to hit but will his strikeouts catch up to him as he advances.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers and the Storm Chasers (Royals) game was postponed due to rain, no makeup date has been set.

Double-A Tulsa

The Missions (Padres) scored six unanswered runs and beat the Drillers 10-5.  Leading by a run going to the seventh inning, the Missions scored two runs off Chris Anderson, who took the loss.

In the ninth inning, the Missions scored four runs to put the game away.  Scott Barlow started for the Drillers, he allowed four runs in five innings pitched.

Willie Calhoun hit his 17th home run and had two RBI, Cody Bellinger hit his 10th home run.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes led 5-0 before they had a seven-run third inning.  All of that led to a 16-5 win over the Mavericks (Rangers).  Perhaps the most amazing stat of the evening was the four-inning outing by Quakes starter Joshua Sborz.

Sborz, who will only go a maximum of four innings from this point of the season, gave up just a run on two hits, he walked two and struck out three.  Felipe Gonzalez followed with four innings pitched, giving up four runs (two earned).  Kyle Hooper pitched a scoreless ninth.

The Quakes had 19 hits, only Ariel Sandoval did not have two or more hits in the game.  There were six home runs amongst those hits:  player of the day Edwin Rios hit two home runs, Tim Locastro, Joey Curletta, Mike Ahmed and Matt Beaty who hit the Quakes first grand slam of the season.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons did not have an extra-base hit and lost 6-2 to the Dragons (Reds).  After Dennis Santana pitched his scheduled two inning outing, Dayton scored three runs in the fourth and two runs in the fifth and after that, the Loons could not catch up.

Shea Spitzbarth gave up three runs in two innings pitched in his Midwest League debut.  After allowing a run in nine innings pitched in Ogden, Spitzbarth gave up two hits, four walks and struck out four along with the three runs.

Rookie - Ogden

The Raptors trailed by two going to the eighth but then they scored two runs to tie the game followed by three runs inthe ninth to beat the Rockies 8-5.

Cody Thomas has now homered in each of his last five games played, two games with the AZL Dodgers and now a home run in each of his first three games with Ogden.  DJ Peters and Moises Perez also homered for the Raptors.

DJ Peters has a seven-game hitting streak and is hitting .344/.425/.531 in 71 plate appearances in Ogden.

Rookie - Arizona

The AZL Indians defeated the AZL Dodgers 7-1.  Yadier Alvarez had his first scored upon outing, as he gave up two runs, on a hit, four walks and five strikeouts in 2⅓ innings.

Alvarez's troubles came in the third inning after he pitched two scoreless innings with three strikeouts and a walk.  In the third, Alvarez walked the bases loaded and then gave up a two-run single.  After recording his fifth strikeout, he was taken out of the game.

Dominican Summer League - Dodgers1 and Dodgers2

Dodgers1 defeated the Diamondbacks2 9-1 while Dodgers2 dropped their game against Astros Blue by a 7-1 score.  Jesus Vargas won his fourth game for Dodgers1, in his last two starts, including this game, he's pitched 11 innings, allowing just a run, one hit, three walks and striking out six.
