The Dodgers affiliates went 1-5 on Thursday.

Oklahoma City dropped both games in their double header on Thursday while Tulsa split theirs. The Quakes and the Drillers also didn’t snag a win.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Oklahoma City Dodgers dropped both games in their double header on Thursday against the San Antonino Missions (Brewers).

In the first game, the Dodgers got off to a 3-0 lead, courtesy of a three-run home run hit by Drew Jackson in the second inning. Things looked good for them until the 5th, where the Missions snagged a run to chip away at the deficit. The Missions completed the comeback in the sixth inning, where Dennis Santana and Josh Sborz combined to allow the opponent to score a seven-run inning to make the final score 8-3.

The Dodgers also lost their second game of the day, getting shut out by the Missions. The Dodgers had a messy fourth inning, allowing two runs to score from a string of mistakes. Ben Holmes would commit a throwing error to allow Tyrone Taylor to reach base. Taylor stole second base and would eventually score after a fielder’s choice and base hit by David Freitas. The second baserunner would also score on Freitas’s single, to make the final score 3-0.

Double-A Tulsa

The Tulsa Drillers won their first game of the double header with a score of 10-8. The Drillers were carried by a three-run home run hit by Cristian Santana in the first inning. The team added to their lead in the eighth with a short rally led by Santana to win.

Tulsa wasn’t able to carry this momentum into the second game, falling to the Midland RockHounds, 5-2. Parker Curry allowed the RockHounds to score three runs in the second inning, giving up a walk, single, double and triple. The Drillers’ Zach Reks homered to get the Drillers on the board in the first and scored a run in the seventh, but his contributions wouldn’t be enough to put them over the top.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

It was a game of small ball in San Bernardino on Thursday. The Quakes fell short in extras with a score of 4-3.

Every single run in the game was batted in through a sacrifice fly or a base hit. The winning run was no different. The Inland Empire 66ers entered the top of the 10th inning with a runner placed on second base. A walk and a base hit would get them the walk-off win.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Dayton Dragons defeated the Great Lakes Loons, with a score of 8-3. The Loons took the lead in the second inning after a fielder’s choice drove in two runs to get them ahead 2-1.

Loons pitchers Jeronimo Castro and Alfredo Tavarez each allowed four earned runs each. Castro allowed back-to-back triples to open up their scoring. These two runners would both score after a base hit drove them in. Their two home runs in the sixth inning just added on some insurance for the Dragons.
