It was a perfect day in minor-league affiliate world, with the teams going a clean 4-for-4.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Oklahoma City Dodgers won their fourth game in a row, with their 8-1 win over the Memphis Redbirds. Their fifth inning was the most exciting, where a walk followed by two doubles and a home run drove in four total runs.

Mitchell White pitched 5 23 innings, allowing just one run to score from four hits and three strikeouts. He struck out a total of nine batters. Caleb Ferguson also made a cameo, only facing one batter before exiting the game.

Rocky Gale went 2-for-4 on Saturday and had three RBIs.

Double-A Tulsa

After an exciting Friday night comeback, the Tulsa Drillers defeated the Arkansas Travelers for the second day in a row. They got out to an early 2-0 lead before the Travelers gave them a little competition. The Drillers pulled out of the tie in the seventh inning to solidify their victory.

Ben Holmes was the starting pitcher for Tulsa and he held the Travelers to just one run. He tossed a total of five innings with eight hits and two walks. Getting credit for the win was Chris Nunn, who tossed a scoreless inning in the sixth.

Logan Landon and Zach McKinstry each contributed a home run to the Drillers.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes breezed by the Inland Empire 66ers, defeating them on Saturday by a 7-2 score. Rancho Cucamonga had already scored all seven of their runs before the 66ers got on the board in the sixth inning.

Left-handed pitcher Leo Crawford earned his first win of the season with his performance opposite of the 66ers. He went 6 23 scoreless innings for his longest outing this season. In his start, he allowed four hits and no walks while striking out eight batters.

Devin Mann and Jeter Downs each had a pair of RBIs in the win.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Great Lakes Loons managed their third shutout win of the season with their victory over the Fort Worth TinCaps on Saturday. It’s their second win in a row and they look for their third on Sunday.

The game was called off in the eighth inning because of an incoming thunderstorm, but the Loons were way ahead of it. They secured their 11-run lead before the storm arrived. A Dillion Paulson grand slam in the fourth inning helped the Loons push past the TinCaps.

Miguel Vargas also hit a run for the Loons on Saturday.
