All four full-season Dodger affiliates won on Monday, three of those wins were by one run. Also one of the Dominican Summer League teams, DSL Dodgers Robinson also won.

Player of the day

Six Rancho Cucamonga Quakes were named to the California League All-Star team on Monday. Shortstop Gavin Lux, third-baseman Rylan Bannon, outfielder Logan Landon and catcher Connor Wong will start for the South Division in next week’s game at Lancaster. Pitchers Tony Gonsolin and Dean Kremer were also named to the team.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers survived giving up the tying runs in the ninth as they went on to beat the Fresno Grizzlies (Astros) 5-4 in ten innings. Joe Broussard, who allowed those tying runs in the ninth, struck out three in the tenth to collect the win.

In the top of the tenth, with runners on first and third and no outs, a Alex Verdugo groundout scored Andrew Toles with the go-ahead run.

It was that ninth inning that saw action in both the top and bottom of the inning. The Dodgers broke a 2-2 tie when after two out, Edwin Rios was still on base due to an error. Rob Segedin drove home Rios when he doubled to center. Angelo Mora followed that with a run-scoring single.

The Grizzlies put runners on first and third with one out in the bottom of the ninth. A double scored the first run and then with the bases-loaded, a line drive single tied the game.

A familiar theme for Dodger teams was played out in Fresno as they used six pitchers, none of them longer than two innings. Pat Venditte pitched two innings and struck out four.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers pounded out four home runs in their 6-3 win matinee win over the Springfield Cardinals. Zach Reks, Connor Joe, Tyler Goeddel, and Jacob Scavuzzo were the home run hitters.

Logan Bawcom got the win, he pitched six innings and gave up three runs and seven hits. Dylan Baker got his third save.

Aside from the home runs, Yusniel Diaz had two hits.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes were facing near first half elimination as they could fall three games back with six to play with a loss to the Lake Elsinore Storm (Padres). But then, trailing by three in the ninth, the Quakes came back to score four runs and they held on to a 8-7 win on Monday at Lake Elsinore.

The Quakes are now one game back with six games left in the first half.

Gavin Lux’s fourth hit of the game capped the four-run ninth inning as Lux drove home the go-ahead run. That was the eighteenth hit of the game for the Quakes.

Cody Thomas also had four hits, Omar Estevez and Saige Jenco each had three hits, while Hamlet Marte had two hits and four RBI.

Stetson Allie got the win and Zach Pop recorded his second save.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons scored three runs in the eighth to tie the game and then with two out, Jared Walker hit a walk-off homer to win 7-6 over the Lake County Captains (Indians).

In the eighth inning, the Loons tied the game on what is described as a two out bases-loaded single to shortstop by Mitchell Hansen that scored all three runs.

James Carter got the win for pitching a scoreless top of the ninth inning. Walker, Brayan Morales and Romer Cuadrado each had two hits.
