OKC wins in 9th

The new-look Oklahoma City Dodgers walked it off on Thursday night.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers won in walk-off fashion, defeating the Baby Cakes 6-5 in the bottom of the ninth. It all started with two outs, as D.J. Peters walked, representing the winning run at first. Jon Kemmer then doubled, bringing in Peters to win the game for OKC.

Making his debut for the Dodgers was Gavin Lux, who was just promoted from Double-A. His debut couldn’t have gone any better, as he went 3-for-5 with a run scored.

Double-A Tulsa

It was a quiet day at the plate for the Drillers, as they only had three hits in their 3-2 loss against the Travelers.

Their lone runs came courtesy of a two-run homer off the bat of Jared Walker in the second inning. For Walker, it was his seventh homer of the season.

Single-A Rancho Cucamonga

It was an offensive parade for the Quakes, as they had 13 hits in their 10-2 win over the JetHawks.

Things got started in the third, as Rancho scored five runs to put the game out of reach. Devin Mann and Jeren Kendall hit back-to-back homers to begin the inning. For Mann, it was his 16th on the season, and for Kendall it was his seventh. Later in the inning, two batters would reach, and then came in off a three-run homer from Jordan Procyshen to make it 5-0 Quakes.

The Quakes added one in the fifth and one in the sixth, before a three-run eighth would all but secure the victory. Kendall his his second home run of the night, this time a three-run shot to put the Quakes up 10-2.

Josiah Gray had yet another dominant start. He threw seven innings of one-run ball, striking out eight and not issuing a walk. On the season, the 21-year-old is 5-0.

High-A Great Lakes

After tying the game in the ninth, the Loons fell in the 10th inning to the Hot Rods, 4-3. Down to their final out in the ninth, the Loons had runners on first and second. On a 1-1 pitch, Miguel Vargas singled to right, bringing in the game-tying run.

The Hot Rods would have a runner on third with one out in the bottom of the 10th. A sacrifice fly to right would be all they needed, as they walked it off.

Short-season Ogden

Game postponed. Makeup game set for Friday.
