Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Dodgers shutout the Colorado Springs Sky Sox (Brewers) 4-0 in a rain-shortened game at Oklahoma City. The Dodgers had scored two runs and had the bases-loaded with one out when the game was delayed due to rain. Ultimately the rain won out and the game was called in the sixth.
The Dodgers initially took the lead in the third inning when O’Koyea Dickson hit his 15th home run, a two-run shot, to give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead.
In the sixth, Dickson doubled and Scott Van Slyke doubled in him in. With one out, Mike Freeman singled in Van Slyke. After that, a pitching change, a walk and single, loaded the bases and at that point, the game was put on hold.
Fabio Castillo started for the Dodgers and pitched four innings, he allowed a hit and struck out three. Justin Marks followed and he got the win for pitching two innings, giving up a hit and striking out three.
The Drillers could not make it three late comebacks in a row, losing 5-3 to Corpus Christi Hooks (Astros). Walker Buehler took the loss, he pitched five innings, gave up two solo home runs, walked two and struck out three.
