A recap of Monday around the Dodgers farm system.
Player of the day
Scott Barlow pitched in to the seventh inning without allowing an earned run on Monday night in just his second Triple-A start ever. Barlow, promoted from Double-A Tulsa on Friday, allowed two unearned runs on four hits against the Memphis Redbirds (Cardinals), striking out five to earn the win.
Barlow, drafted by the Dodgers in the sixth round in 2011, last pitched in Triple-A in 2015, making a spot start for Oklahoma City. The right-hander was 5-3 with a 2.02 ERA in 14 starts with Tulsa, with 87 strikeouts and 29 walks in 75⅔ innings.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
OKC used a three-run third inning to back Barlow in a 3-2 win over the Redbirds. O`Koyea Dickson hit a two-run home run, his 17th of the season. Second baseman Jose Miguel Fernandez, promoted to Triple-A earlier in the day, was reached base four times in his Triple-A debut. Fernandez had two singles, a walk, a hit by pitch, a run scored and one RBI in the win.
The Drillers are off for the Texas League All-Star break. Nine Drillers were named All-Stars for the game on Tuesday, though Barlow and Tim Locastro were since promoted to Triple-A and Kyle Garlick is injured.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
After Scott Kazmir threw three innings in the first game of his minor league rehab assignment, Yadier Alvarez pitched six strong innings to lead the Quakes over the Lake Elsinore Storm (Padres), 6-4 on Monday night.
Alvarez struck out seven in his six innings of relief, and didn’t allow anything until the ninth, when Lake Elsinore plated three runs, two earned.
The middle infield paced the offense. Second baseman Errol Robinson homered, tripled, and drove in two, while shortstop Omar Estevez hit two doubles and drove in two of his own.
Class-A Great Lakes
The Loons managed just six hits in a 5-2 loss to the Lake County Captains (Indians). Catcher Keibert Ruiz had two of those hits, including a double, in the loss.
Outfielder Romer Cuadrado was 3-for-4 with a home run in Ogden’s 14-9 loss to the Orem Owlz (Angels). The game featured four Dodgers draft picks from this year:
- Third baseman Rylan Cannon (eighth round) was 0-for-1
- Left fielder Zach Reks (10th) was 0-for-1 with a walk and a run scored
- Second baseman Connor Heady (23rd) was 2-for-3 with a double, a run, and an RBI
- Designated hitter Tyler Adkison (32nd) was 1-for-4 with a triple, a walk, and a run
