Tulsa Drillers - Naeem Thomas

Oklahoma City got a great performance by Trevor Oaks, Rancho Cucamonga came back to win and Great Lakes cruised to their win.  Only one Rookie affiliate won on Monday.

Player of the day

Oklahoma City right-handed starter Trevor Oaks had his best start of the season as he pitched a complete game and gave up just a run and three hits.  Oaks also had a career high 11 strikeouts.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers got great pitching and good offense and that meant a series sweeping 8-1 win over the Chihuahuas (Padres).  The Dodgers have now won six straight games including the four-game series sweep.

Oaks won his fifth game with the Dodgers and his overall record in his three minor league stops is 14-3 and Oaks has now pitched over 150 innings.

Oklahoma City had 13 hits.  Will Venable hit a two-run home run.  Andrew Toles, O`Koyea Dickson, Corey Brown, Charlie Culberson and Brandon Hicks were the Dodgers who each had two hits.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers were off on Monday.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes were trailing the Nuts (Rockies) 2-0 in the top of the ninth.  But a two-out hit in the ninth by Yusniel Diaz drove in the tying run.  And then in the tenth, Erick Mejia drove in two runs that proved to be the difference in the Quakes 4-2 win.

Corey Copping picked up the win for throwing three scoreless innings.  Chris Anderson also pitched two scoreless innings to keep the game within reach.

In the ninth, Devan Ahart tripled and he later scored the first Quakes run.  Will Smith would walk and he was followed by singles from Matt Beaty and Yusniel Diaz that drove in Smith to tie the game.

With two out in the top of tenth, Ahart doubled to make it runners on second and third with two outs.   Erick Mejia untied the game with a base hit that drove in the ultimately winning runs.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons jumped out to a 6-1 lead in the fourth and only one run was to be added in their 7-1 win the over the Lugnuts (Blue Jays) 7-1.  Imani Abdullah won his third game  of the season.

A big four run second provided all the runs Abdullah and the Loons would need.  In the second, a bases loaded single from Serge Jenco plated two runs, a bases loaded walk and a wild pitch would provide the other runs.

Two hits for Omar Estevez, Logan Landon, Brendon Davis and Jenco.

Pioneer - Ogden

The Raptors fell short in the their comeback as the Voyagers (White Sox) took a one-run 7-6 win over the Dodgers.
