Both full season affiliates won on Monday but all of the Rookie teams lost.
Player of the day
Outfielder Chris Roller has a four-game hitting streak but he’s here today for the below play that help extend the Loons winning streak to six games.
The Loons and playoffs have not been in the same sentence in 2018 but their streak has helped them climb to within a half game of a wild card spot.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Dodgers scored six runs in the last three innings including four runs in the ninth that helped them beat the Omaha Storm Chasers (Royals) 10-5 on Monday. Three Dodgers, Kyle Farmer, Kyle Garlick and Edwin Rios each had two hits in the win.
Brian Schlitter won his sixth game of the season. Edward Parades and Joe Broussard pitched the final two innings.
In the ninth inning, with no one on and two outs, the Dodgers got a walk by Tim Locastro followed by an Alex Verdugo single. Farmer hit a ground rule double to score a run.
Andrew Toles was intentionally walked but that was not helpful as Garlick hit a three-run triple to make it 10-5.
The Drillers were off on Monday. They will host the Corpus Christi Hooks (Astros) for a series starting on Tuesday.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
The Quakes were also off on Monday. The Lake Elsinore Storm (Padres) will be at LoanMart Field tonight to begin a series against the Quakes.
Class-A Great Lakes
The Loons scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth and then held on to beat the Dayton Dragons (Reds) 3-2 at home on Monday. As seen above, the Dragons appeared to have a chance to tie the game when a two-out base hit scored one run but a good throw by Chris Miller cut down the runner to win the game.
In the bottom of the eighth and the Loons trailing 1-0, the Loons loaded the bases with two outs. A wild pitch scored the tying run and then Devin Mann tripled to right to give the Loons a 3-1 lead.
Devin Hemmerich got the win and Jasiel Alvino picked up his sixth save.
The Raptors fell 10-3 to the Great Falls Voyagers (White Sox). Already trailing by three runs, the Raptors saw the Voyagers plate seven runs in the sixth inning to put the game out of reach.
The Raptors scored single runs in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings but that was not enough on Monday.
Brett De Geus gave up three runs in five innings pitched De Geus took the loss and his record went to 3-4.
Arizona-Rookie AZL Dodgers
The AZL Dodgers fell a run short in their 3-2 loss to the AZL Athletics. The Dodgers gave up three runs in the first inning but were never able to catch up.
The Dodgers went 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position and their final out came with the potential tying run on second base.
