The farm experienced a few shake ups with five players exiting via the Manny Machado trade, but that didn’t stop the full season teams from winning three of four games Wednesday.
Player of the day
Kyle Garlick had three hits Wednesday, but his two run home run in the tenth allowed the Dodgers to walk off winners over New Orleans. Garlick’s home run was his 14th for Oklahoma City, and he is now slashing .282/.314/.549 in AAA.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
Oklahoma City walked off in the tenth inning over the New Orleans Baby Cakes (Marlins) 6-4. Kyle Garlick’s tenth inning home run drove in two of his three runs batted in. Donovan Solano also had three hits, scoring one run, while Kyle Farmer went two for five with a double and a pair of runs scored.
Justin DeFratus allowed all four of New Orleans’ runs in his five innings of work. Shea Spitzbarth, Pat Venditte, Joe Broussard, and Ariel Hernandez combined to keep the Baby Cakes off the scoreboard and the Dodgers in the game, with Hernandez getting the win.
Tulsa rallied with two runs in the eighth inning to come back and defeat the Arkansas Travelers (Mariners) 4-3. Jacob Scavuzzo once again led the offense, coming up a triple shy of the cycle and driving in the tying run in the eighth inning. Drew Jackson also singled and walked while recording his 18th stolen base on the season.
Andrew Sopko pitched five innings, allowing three runs on nine hits and two walks. Yadier Alvarez walked one in a scoreless inning of relief. Devin Smeltzer took the win with two scoreless innings of relief, while Stetson Allie slammed the door in the ninth for his second save with Tulsa.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
The Quakes banged out 19 hits and 12 runs to clobber the San Jose Giants 15-6. Jeren Kendall had a triumphant return from the disabled list, finishing a double shy of the cycle while driving in four runs. Jared Walker (three for five) and Zach McKinstry (two for five) also homered, while Logan Landon also had three hits and a pair of runs scored.
Dustin May survived a rocky first two frame to pitch fiving innings, allowing five runs, four earned. Logan Salow pitched a scoreless frame in relief, while Jason Richman earned the three inning save, striking out three.
Class-A Great Lakes
The Loons lost a slender lead in the ninth inning to fall 2-1 to the Great Lakes Kernels (Twins). Brayan Morales doubled and drove in the Loons’ lone run. Morales also stole his 46th base of the season. Hunter Feduccia also walked, doubled and scored.
Alfredo Tavarez allowed just one walk and five hits in five innings, striking out five. Dan Jagiello struck out three in two innings of relief, but Sven Schuller allowed two runs in the ninth inning to take the loss for Great Lakes.
Short Season Ogden
The Raptors survived a late rally from the Missoula Osprey (Diamondbacks) to win 9-8. Ronny Brito, Matt Cogen, and Tre Todd each homered for Ogden. Jeremy Arocho also went two for four with a double and run scored.
Kevin Malishewski earned the win, lasting 5.2 innings while allowing just one run. Hunter Speer struck out a pair in 1.1 innings to notch the save.
