Triple-A Oklahoma City
Manny Bañuelos lost his fifth game of the season. Bañuelos pitched five innings and he gave up seven runs and six hits.
Three Dodgers had two hits, Kyle Farmer, Andrew Toles and Angelo Mora. Farmer and Connor Joe each hit a home run.
The Drillers gave up four unearned runs in the third inning and that led their 5-2 loss to NW Arkansas Naturals (Royals). An error by Mike Ahmad allowed Mike Heath to reach first base. After a stolen base and moving to third on fly out, Heath scored on a Khalil Lee single.
Another single put runners on first and second. White got the next hitter to ground into a fielder’s choice. Unfortunately that was not the third out. A stolen base, single and double followed and the Naturals had four runs on the board.
The Naturals would add a run in the fourth inning. White left after five innings pitched and he gave up five runs (one earned) and eight hits.
Jacob Scavuzzo hit a solo home run, his 17th of the season. Errol Robinson and Wes Darvill each had two hits.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
The Quakes were unable to muster much offense as they lost 3-1 to the Modesto Nuts (Mariners). The win ended Modesto’s six-game losing streak.
A big reason why the Quakes were so quiet at the plate was Modesto’s pitching. Modesto retired the last 16 Quakes they faced. Overall, the Nuts gave up one run on four hits. They struck out 13 Quakes while walking just one.
And it wasn’t like the Nuts were doing much more at the plate. Their first run scored on a ground out. The tie-breaking run scored on a dropped pop fly and the third run scored on a two-out single.
Cristian Santana hit a solo home run and he also singled. Gavin Lux also had two singles.
Class-A Great Lakes
The Peoria Chiefs (Cardinals) beat the Loons 6-2 on Sunday. Edwin Uceta pitched 5⅓ innings for the Loons. He gave up three runs and nine hits.
