Very good day for Dodger minor league affiliates as every team won with the one loss being part of a split double-header.
Player of the day
With every team winning, there were several choices but the Player of the day honor goes to Andrew Toles. The Oklahoma City outfielder went 5-for-8 in the pair of games with a home run and two runs batted in.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Dodgers ended their losing streak as they split their doubleheader against the New Orleans Baby Cakes (Marlins). In the first game, the Dodgers won 6-4 while they lost the second game 11-5.
Scoring six runs in the fourth inning was how the Dodgers won that first game. In that inning, Kyle Garlick, Henry Ramos and Connor Joe each homered.
Tyler Pill, Pat Venditte and Brian Schlitter pitched in the first game, Schlitter got the win for pitching the final two innings. The win ended a season-high six-game losing streak.
In the second game, the Dodgers had a 5-0 lead but then they allowed 11 unanswered runs to lose 11-5. The Dodgers repeated their first game feat with three home runs, one apiece for Connor Joe, Angelo Mora and Andrew Toles.
But it was the pitching that let the Baby Cakes back into the game. Justin DeFratus allowed five runs and Ariel Hernandez gave up the lead with his two runs allowed.
Madison Younginer gave up three runs without recording an out.
The Drillers shutout the Midland RockHounds (Athletics) 4-0 on Saturday. Logan Bawcom pitched six innings to get the win. Bawcom allowed two hits and two walks. He did have eight strikeouts.
