That’s not a typo.

The Dodgers’ affiliated teams went 1-3 on Tuesday night.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers’ offense exploded on Tuesday night, erupting for 11 (!!!) runs in the seventh inning en route to their 15-6 win over the Express.

As OKC entered the seventh, they trailed 6-4. A leadoff triple, followed by a double and a single quickly tied the game at six each. The next two batters got out, and OKC had a runner on first. This is when the rally started, as NINE (!!!!!) consecutive Dodgers reached base.

After a single and a walk, the bases were loaded for Matt Beaty. On the first pitch he saw, he scorched a double to right, clearing the bases and giving the Dodgers the 9-6 lead. After Kyle Garlick was hit by a pitch, Shane Peterson and Will Smith delivered back-to-back singles, pushing OKC’s lead to six runs. Drew Jackson and Daniel Castro would add back-to-back doubles, giving the Dodgers a 15-6 lead.

Double-A Tulsa

Just like Oklahoma City, it was a high-scoring affair for Tulsa. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough, as they dropped one to the Naturals 12-10.

The offense came to play, as the Drillers totaled 17 hits on the night. Six different players had at least two hits, with Gavin Lux, Keibert Ruiz and DJ Peters each having three of their own. Zach Reks hit his team-leading ninth homer of the season.

Things were rough on the pitching side, particularly with starter, Michael Bowden.

Single-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes were one out away from extra-innings. Pitcher Logan Salow was unable to record the final out, as he allowed a three-run home run to end the game, giving his team the 6-3 loss.

Rancho was able to tie the game in the eighth thanks to a two-out rally. After the first two batters were retired, Donovan Casey singled, bringing Marcus Chiu up to the plate. Chiu took a 1-1 pitch over the center field fence, connecting on his fourth homer of the season, and tying the game at three a piece.

Leo Crawford had a great start for the Quakes. He threw five innings, striking out six and walking zero, while allowing only one run.

High-A Great Lakes

It was a quiet night for the Loons’ offense, as they were held to only three hits in their 4-3 loss to the Dayton Dragons.

They had opportunities, but just couldn’t capitalize, as they went 1-for-6 with runners in scoring position and stranded six runners on base.
