The Tulsa Drillers and Rancho Cucamonga Quakes had days off on Monday, while the other two teams played for a combined three games. No Dodgers-affiliated teams went home with a win.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Oklahoma City Dodgers dropped both games in their Memorial Day doubleheader. Each game was decided in seven innings.

In game one, the first three innings were scoreless until the Omaha Storm Chasers snagged a run off of right-handed pitcher Mitchell White. The Storm Chasers scored three more runs in the fifth inning before Connor Joe hit a two-run homer to cut the deficit in half (4-2). Omaha came right back with a home run of their own, but it was a three-run bomb re-extend their lead. In the Dodgers’ last chance at redemption (AKA top of the seventh inning), they were able to get another run on the board, but didn’t score enough runs in before recording the last out.

Game two seemed to be more promising, with the Dodgers up by as much as four runs in the contest. OKC was leading 5-1 in the fourth inning before Omaha made their comeback. The Storm Chasers chased and passed up the Dodgers after scoring five unanswered runs to take home the 6-5 victory and the doubleheader.

Double-A Tulsa

The Tulsa Drillers had a day off on Memorial Day. They continue action on Tuesday in Springfield, Missouri against the Cardinals.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes also had a break on Memorial Day. They open up a three-game series in Lake Elsinore on Tuesday.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Great Lakes Loons fell to the Fort Worth TinCaps on Monday. The TinCaps pulled of a five-run third inning, which would be enough to ensure their win.

A pair of hits and a walk loaded the bases with TinCaps players while Loons left-handed pitcher John Rooney was on the mound. An unfortunate wild pitch by the southpaw allowed all the runners to advance, scoring the first run of five. Rooney allowed another batter to reach base to re-load the bases and give Fort Worth another run. Two more batters reached base, including a walk and a base hit, to finish off their rally.

Loons first baseman Dillon Paulson was the start of the game, knocking in all three runs Great Lakes scored on Monday. This included an RBI single and a two-run home run (5th this season). The 21-year-old has a .247 batting average with 26 RBIs this season.

Rooney was credited with his first loss, making his record 0-1. He tossed a total of 2 13 innings and allowed six earned runs from five hits and three walks.
