Triple-A Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City defeated the Memphis Redbirds (Cardinals) 4-1 on Tuesday. The Dodgers got a fine performance by Justin Masterson, who pitched seven innings, gave up one run, five hits and one walk. He also struck out five.

Justin Marks and Josh Ravin each pitched a scoreless inning to record a hold and a save respectively.

The Dodgers scored three runs in the third inning as Drew Maggi, Todd Cunningham and Scott Van Slyke each drove in a run.

Cunningham went 3-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI.

Double-A Tulsa

Three times the Drillers gave up four runs in an inning and that made the Arkansas Travelers (Mariners) a 12-4 winner over the Drillers.

Andrew Sopko only got two outs in the first as he gave up four runs, three hits and three walks. Five relievers followed, Ralston Cash and Corey Copping gave up the other two four-run innings. Michael Johnson, Karch Kowalczyk and Brian Moran each had scoreless appearances.

Peter O’Brien hit his fifth home run.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes woke up with the sounds of a walk-off win the night before ringing in their ears, but soon the Stockon Ports (Athletics) ruined the brunch-timed game with an early 6-0 lead. But behind five home runs, the Quakes came back to win 12-10 and that gave them a three-game sweep.

The Quakes halved their six-run deficit with a two-run homer from Victor Roache and an RBI single by Brandon Montgomery. After the Ports added another run, the Quakes tied it with a pair of two-run homers, the first by Drew Jackson and the second from Brant Whiting.

Whiting would go on to go 4-for-4 in his second game with the Quakes. The Ports eventually took a three-run lead but in the sixth, a pair of home runs, the first, a two-run shot by Luke Raley and that was followed by a solo shot from Johan Mieses.

Tied at 8-8, a single by Whiting, Ariel Sandoval doubled home Whiting and then Sandoval moved to third on the throw home and he scored on a sacrifice fly to make it 10-8.
