Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers fell behind in the first inning and never got into this game as they lost 8-2 to the Redbirds (Cardinals). Daniel Corcino gave up six runs in his 5⅓ innings to take the loss.

Connor Joe hit a solo home run and Rocky Gale had a two-out run scoring single to account for the Dodger offense.

Zach Reks and Edwin Rios each had two hits.

The Dodgers went 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position and they left eight runners on base.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers scored twice in the eighth to break a tie game and then they held on to beat the Sod Poodles (Padres) 5-3 on Sunday. The win increased their second-half record to 5-1 as the Drillers get ready to take their All-Star break.

Chris Parmelee and DJ Peters had run-scoring singles to give the Drillers their lead in the eighth inning.

Jordan Sheffield, who had given up the tying run in the top of the eighth, struck out three of the four batters he faced in the top of the ninth to pick up the win.
