It was a full day as all nine Dodger minor league affiliates played on Friday. OKC, Tulsa and Rancho Cucamonga lost but Great Lakes and Ogden won their games. Also three of the four Rookie teams also won.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Dodgers took an early lead but then the Redbirds (Cardinals) scored at least one run in each of the last six innings in their 14-7 win over the Dodgers. Brock Stewart took the loss, pitching 5⅓ innings and giving up six runs (four earned).
Later Shea Spitzbarth gave up five runs while recording just two outs.
The Dodger offense did have 12 hits but they also went 4-for-15 when they had runners in scoring position.
Will Smith (pictured below) had his home run hit in consecutive games streak broken on Thursday. Perhaps he started a new on Friday when he had two hits including his 14th home run. He is hitting .293/.375/.805 in June.
