With every Dodger affiliate losing on Friday, today could be the last day of baseball for the Dodger minor league teams.  But just one win will mean more baseball so with that, here is today's report.

Player of the day

Cody Bellinger went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a double.  Bellinger is playing in his second post-season, last year, Bellinger played for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes which won the California League in 2015.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Sounds (Athletics) took a two games to one lead when they completed a come back with two runs in the eighth inning to win 6-5 over the Dodgers.  The Sounds will try to win the series today.

The Dodgers had taken a one-run lead in the seventh, two runs scoring when Cody Bellinger singled with the bases loaded.  But the Dodgers could not hold on.

Chase De Jong started and pitched 5⅔ innings and gave up four runs, two hits, walked five and struck out seven.

Along with Bellinger, Micah Johnson had two hits and Corey Brown hit his second home run in this series.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes saw the JetHawks (Astros) surpass their run total in the second game as the JetHawks scored in every inning from the third on and won 21-6 to win their series two games to one.

The Quakes had a 3-0 lead going to the bottom of the third inning but with two out and clinging to a 3-2 lead, Jason Martin hit a grand slam to make it 6-2.

The Quakes would have slight look back in the game when Brandon Trinkwon lead off the next inning with a home run and then got two straight singles to bring up the tying run.  But they did not add anymore runs and the JetHawks scored five more runs in the bottom of the inning and the rout was on.

The JetHawks scored in every inning from that point on as no Quakes pitcher were able to go un-scored upon.  And the Quakes were unable to score when they had opportunities going 3-for-12 with runners in scoring position.

Class-A Great Lakes

In a span of over a game and two and a half innings, the Loons had scored a total of 21 runs and given up only three going to bottom of the third inning.  But the Loons would score no more and the Hot Rods (Rays) would score four runs in the seventh and went on to win 8-6 to tie their series at a game apiece.

The teams will play the deciding game today at Bowling Green.

In that seventh inning, there was one out and the bases loaded with the Loons holding on to a one run lead.  Brandon Lowe hit a grounder to Omar Estevez, who made a bad throw that led to three runs scoring.  That gave the Hot Rods the lead and ultimately the game.

Pioneer - Ogden

The Raptors and Owlz (Angels) opened their three-game series in Ogden and the Owlz won 6-5 in ten innings.  Five errors led to four unearned runs which proved to be decisive in the first game.

In the top of the tenth and one out and one on, the Owlz got a break when Keith Grieshaber reached second on a Cody Thomas error.  The next batter drove in both runs and that was just enough for the win.

Luis Paz hit his second home run of the game to make it a one-run game but the Raptors could not score again.

DJ Peters had four hits in the game and Cody Thomas had two doubles.

The series now moves to Orem so the Raptors will again need to win at least two more games on the road to move on in the playoffs.


Triple-A: Los Angeles recalled right-handed pitcher Carlos Frias from Oklahoma City.
