It was a double or nothing night on the farm, as Great Lakes and Tulsa swept a pair of double headers while Oklahoma City came up empty in two tries.

Player of the day

Mitchell White had his best start of the season and was near perfect in his 5.2 innings of work. White allowed just two hits while striking out seven to earn the win in game one of Tulsa’s double header. White’s innings and strikeouts were the most he has put up in a single game this season, and his work in the shutout lowered his ERA to 2.45 on the year.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City was hit hard in game one of a double header with Round Rock, falling to the Express (Astros) 12-5. Ben Holmes allowed six runs on six hits in just two innings of work in taking the loss. Josh Sborz allowed just one unearned run in an inning of relief, striking out one.

Paulo Orlando led the Dodgers in going two for two with two doubles. Will Smith tripled as part of a one for four game.

The Dodgers did not fare much better in game two, falling to the Express 9-3. Paulo Orlando doubled again in game two, part of a one for two game. Angelo Mora had a pair of hits including a triple.

Justin De Fratus recorded just one out in the first inning, allowing six runs on four walks, a hit, and an error. Joe Broussard could not limit the damage, surrendering three runs in 2.2 innings in relief of De Fratus.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers rode strong pitching by Mitchell White to take game one of a double header with Midland, defeating the RockHounds 4-0. The bulk of the scoring came on a three run home run by Cristian Santana in the sixth, his third home run of the season. Chris Parmelee also had a pair of hits in his return to the lineup.

White’s win was his first of the year. Michael Boyle and Layne Somsen held the RockHounds scoreless over the final 1.2 innings to secure the shutout.

The Drillers found more offense in taking game two from Midland 7-2. Jared Walker was the hero, homering twice as part of a two for three night. Zach McKinstry also had a home run in a two for three game, and Logan Landon went two for four with a double out of the leadoff spot.

Parker Curry allowed both RockHound runs in his 3.1 innings of work. Andre Scrubb was solid in relief, striking out three in 2.1 innings to earn the victory.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes backed a strong start by Edwin Uceta with 10 hits in an 8-3 win over the Lake Elsinore Storm (Padres) 8-3. Uceta allowed just one run and three hits in six innings, striking out eight for his first win of the year. Dustin Moseley held the Storm scoreless over 2.1 innings to notch his fourth save.

Devin Mann paced all Quakes’ hitters, going three for four with a walk and a double while scoring three runs. Drew Avans hit his first home run of the season, while Brayan Morales stole his 17th and 18th bases of the season.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons won a slug fest in game one of a double header with Beloit, defeating the Snappers (Athletics) 12-8. Chris Roller led the Loons with a triple, home run, and four runs driven in. Niko Hulsizer also hit his fourth home run of the season, while Jacob Amaya went two for three with a double.

Guillermo Zuniga gave up the bulk of the Snappers’ runs, allowing seven in 3.1 innings. Brett de Geus earned the win with 2.2 perfect innings of relief, striking out five.

The Loons also took game two in a more tightly contested affair, winning 3-2. All of the Loons’ runs came in the second inning, two on a Leonel Valera triple. James Outman went one for two and also stole his sixth base on the year.

Jose Chacin was strong over the first five innings, allowing just one run on four hits, striking out five. Austin Drury came in to record the final out of the seventh to earn his first save.
