Dodger affiliates split on Friday, Great Lakes keeps winning and Tulsa has nice win at home. OKC drops their series finale and Rancho Cucamonga loses late due to rally at Lancaster.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers were unable to beat Zac Gallen again as the Baby Cakes (Marlins) beat them 4-1 in their series finale at New Orleans. Gallen had already thrown a seven-inning ten strikeout game for a win over the Dodgers on May 3rd.

On Friday, Gallen was strong again in his start versus the Dodgers. He pitched seven innings and gave up a run and four hits. He struck out six and had just one walk.

Justin De Fratus also pitched seven innings for the Dodgers. He gave up four runs and seven hits. He struck out six.

Tony Cingrani made his seventh rehab appearance for OKC. He pitched one scoreless inning.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers scored three runs in the sixth to break a tie and were able to go on and beat the Naturals (Royals) 7-2 at home on Friday. In the bottom of the sixth, Keibert Ruiz singled home two runs to put the Drillers ahead. A sacrifice fly by DJ Peters was able to score the third run in the sixth.

Victor Gonzalez started for the Drillers. He pitched 5⅓ innings and allowed two runs and six hits. He struck out seven while walking one. Another multi-strikeout appearance from Marshall Kasowski finished the game for Tulsa.

Kasowski has recorded two or more strikeouts in 13 of his 15 appearances this season. He is averaging over 17 strikeouts per nine innings this season.

Angelo Mora and Ruiz each had two hits. Chris Parmelee went 1-for-2 with his fourth home run of the season.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes had a two-run lead going to the bottom of the eighth but then the JetHawks (Rockies) scored four runs as they rallied for an 8-6 win over the Quakes.

Sven Schueller entered the game for the Quakes to pitch the eighth inning. Schueller gave up three straight hits which resulted in two runs that tied the game.

After one out, a wild pitch and a solo home run gave the JetHawks a two-run lead which they held on to for the win.

The Quakes were unable to take advantage of their scoring oppurtunities as they went 1-for-13 with runners in scoring position.

Connor Wong and Donovan Casey each had two hits.

Josiah Gray started for the Quakes. He pitched six innings and allowed four runs (three earned) and eight hits. He struck out four but did not issue and walks.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons scored five runs in the first inning and never looked back as they defeated the TinCaps (Padres) 7-0 at home on Friday. The Loons had 20 hits as eight different players had multi-hit games.

As for their pitching, Andre Jackson and Jose Martinez combined for the shutout for the Loons.

Jackson has three consecutive scoreless starts and he has now thrown 17⅔ consecutive scoreless innings. On Friday, he pitched six innings and allowed two hits while striking out six. The 23-year old right-handed pitcher will likely follow his former teammate Josiah Gray to Rancho Cucamonga in the coming months.

Jair Camargo, Dan Robinson and Chris Roller each had three hits. Miguel Vargas, Jacob Amaya, Niko Hulsizer, James Outman and Leonel Valera each collected two hits on Friday.
