Late rallies gave two Dodgers minor league affiliates wins on Monday night.
Player of the day
Willie Calhoun was 2-for-4 with a walk out of the leadoff spot, scoring once and driving in another run in Oklahoma City’s win at Round Rock. It was his ninth multi-hit game of 2017.
He went 18 games without his first home run this season, but since then owns a .620 slugging percentage in his last 12 games at 52 plate appearances, thanks to four home runs, two doubles, and a triple.
Calhoun on the season is hitting .306/.342/.495.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Dodgers rallied for three runs in the seventh inning to beat the Round Rock Express (Rangers), 6-5. Trayce Thompson delivered the game-tying hit and was 2-for-5 on the night, giving him a four-game hitting streak. He is 7-for-17 (.412) during the streak, which was very much needed after his 2-for-56 start with OKC.
Drew Maggi drove in the game winner, part of a three-hit night. He is 8-for-10 with two doubles and a home run in his last three games.
Down two runs with six outs to go, the Drillers rallied for eight runs in the eighth inning to beat the Springfield Cardinals, 9-3. Tulsa only had two hits in the inning, but thanks to four walks, three errors, and a wild pitch, eight runs came across.
Edwin Rios had one of those hits in the eighth, and had a double earlier. He’s batting .361. Corey Copping struck out four in two scoreless innings of relief to earn the win.
Kyle Garlick was 2-for-3 with a walk and a home run, his team-leading eighth of the season. Garlick has three home runs in his last four games, and in his last 18 games owns a .672 slugging percentage.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
The Quakes were off on Monday after completing their homestead on Sunday. Rancho Cucamonga opens a seven-game road trip on Tuesday night in San Jose against the Giants.
Class-A Great Lakes
The Loons committed three errors in a 4-1 loss to the Kane County Cougars (Diamondbacks) on Monday night. Jordan Sheffield suffered the tough-luck loss, allowing two runs (one earned) while striking out five, and pitched five innings for the first time as a professional.
Brendon Davis drove in the Loons only run.
Triple-A: Relief pitcher Adam Liberatore was recalled to Los Angeles.
Double-A: Starting pitcher Josh Sborz was added back to the Drillers’ roster from extended spring training in a paper move; catcher Paul Hoenecke was played on the seven-day disabled list, retroactive to Sunday.
