It was a rough Mother’s Day, as no Dodgers minor-league affiliated team was able to pick up a victory.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Dodgers fell behind 3-0 at the end of the first inning. They were unable to get the bats going, as they fell to the Round Rock Express, 4-2.
It was a rough night for the offense, as they strung together only six hits on the night. They were 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position, and stranded 13 runners on base.
Tony Cingrani was able to get some work in, as he works his way back from an injury that placed him on the IL to start the season. He threw a scoreless inning and struck out one. Also throwing a scoreless inning was J.T. Chargois, who struck out three in his brief work. On the season, he owns a 1.76 ERA.
An eighth-inning comeback tied the game for the Travelers. Three innings later they would walk things off, defeating the Drillers 7-6.
Tulsa fell behind early in the game, but tied the game at two in the fifth. With runners at the corners and one out, Steve Berman singled to center, scoring both runs as he reached second with an error.
They would tack on another run in the sixth, and then three more in the seventh. The Drillers strung together five consecutive walks, giving them a 6-3 lead. With no outs still, they couldn’t put the game out of reach, as back-to-back strikeouts and a fly out ended the inning.
Failing to score more runs would come back to haunt them, as they allowed Northwest Arkansas to score three runs over the course of the next two innings to tie the game. For the game, Tulsa was 4-for-21 with runners in scoring position. The Naturals would win the game on a walk-off single in the bottom of the 11th.
Single-A Rancho Cucamonga
There was a whole lot of offense that took place in Rancho Cucamonga. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough for the Quakes, as they fell to Visalia 11-7.
Trailing 6-1, the Quakes scored six runs in the seventh to take the 7-6 lead. They would string together six consecutive hits, starting with a home run from Jordan Procyshen. Three singles, a double, triple and sacrifice fly later, Rancho had a one-run lead.
The Rawhide evened things up in the eighth, and then tacked on four in the ninth, giving them the 11-7 victory.
