The Dodgers' Rookie level affiliates broke out the bats Wednesday.

The full season clubs ran into frustrating losses and weather, while a few short season clubs enjoyed big offensive performances.

Player of the day

On a day when few of the big names in the organization stood out, Andy Pages made a name for himself with a pair of home runs, his second and third over his last two games. Pages added another pair of singles to his hit total for the night, and raised his OPS to .891 for the year.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City was held to just three hits in a 3-1 defeat to the New Orleans Baby Cakes (Marlins). Jake Peter led the Dodgers with a pair of hits, including his fifth home run of the season. Zach Reks had the other Dodger hit in a one for three night.

Logan Bawcom was solid in taking the loss, going six innings, striking out seven while allowing just two runs. Jaime Schultz struck out a pair in a scoreless inning of work.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers were off on Wednesday as they continued their All Star break.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes ran into a buzzsaw named MacKenzie Gore and were stymied 5-0 by the Lake Elsinore Storm (Padres). The Quakes were held to just four hits, with one each from Devin Mann, Marcus Chiu, Brayan Morales, and Niko Hulsizer. Jeren Kendall reached on a hit by pitch and stole his ninth base of the season.

Michael Grove broke a string of rough starts, striking out three against one hit in two innings of work. Wills Montgomerie suffered the loss in relief, surrendering five runs while striking out six in 4.2 innings of work.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons and Bowling Green Hot Rods (Rays) went five innings before the rain came and suspended the game until Thursday. John Rooney had allowed just two runs over five innings, walking four while striking out two.

Short Season Ogden

The Raptors overcame 16 strikeouts to club the Rocky Mountain Vibes (Brewers) 12-5. Andy Pages paced all Raptors with four hits in six at bats, including a pair of home runs. Brandon Wulff also hit his first professional home run, a grand slam, in the first inning. Justin Yurchak also had a pair of hits and scored four times.

Jeronimo Castro struck out four but allowed two runs in three innings. Corey Merrill took the win in relief by striking out three in two scoreless innings, while Reza Aleaziz notched his first save by recording the final four outs.

Rookie Arizona League

The AZL Dodgers Lasorda fell to the AZL Padres2 by the score of 12-5. Yunior Garcia drove in three runs on his second home run of the season, while Edwin Mateo led all Dodgers with two hits. Jack Little pitched a scoreless first inning in making his professional debut.

The AZL Dodgers Mota clobbered the AZL Athletics Gold 20-5. Ismael Alcantara came a home run shy of the cycle on a four hour night, while Jeremiah Vison matched his hit total of four. Diego Cartaya drove in three runs on a pair of doubles.

Dominican Summer League

The DSL Dodgers Bautista defeated the DSL Rays1 9-8. Luis Morales went two for four with a home run.

The DSL Dodgers Shoemaker defeated the DSL Cubs1 5-3. Luis Izturis led all Dodgers with three hits.
