Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Oklahoma City Dodgers completed the series sweep of the Memphis Redbirds with a 8-2 victory on Sunday. This is the first sweep the Dodgers have made this season.
Dennis Santana got the start on the mound for the Dodgers and had a good outing. He threw six innings and only allowed two runs to score from five hits and a walk. The two runs were the only ones the Redbirds scored that afternoon. Kevin Quackenbush, Josh Sborz and Jaime Schultz each came in as relief and each pitched a scoreless inning.
The Dodgers had tremendous success against Redbirds pitcher Alex Reyes, getting seven hits to drive in seven runs on Sunday.
Edwin Rios had a spectacular five-RBI game on Sunday, the most he’s driven in all season. He and Zach Reks each had a home run in the win.
The Tulsa Drillers recorded the first loss in June against the Arkansas Travelers by a score of 10-3. Tulsa lead the game early, but the Travelers six-run seventh innings put them much ahead of their opponent. Ryan Moseley earned the most runs on Sunday, allowing five earned runs to score in one-third of an inning.
Zack McKinstry collected the only two RBIs for the Drillers, driving in two base runners on a double. The other Tulsa run scored on an error.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
The Quakes took the series against the Inland Empire 66ers on Sunday with a 6-4 victory. Rancho Cucamonga got off to a lead in the first inning and wouldn’t allow the 66ers to outscore them in the entire contest.
The Quakes starting pitcher Michael Grove only tossed two innings before being replaced by Wills Montgomerie in the third. Grove allowed three earned runs to score from four hits and a walk while striking out four batters. Montgomerie ended up having a long appearance, pitching five innings and only allowing one run (not earned). The next two Quakes relievers also didn’t allow an earned run.
Tre Todd and Jeren Kendall each knocked in a pair of runs on Sunday.

The Loons also got a victory on Thursday, defeating the Fort Wayne TinCaps 7-4. The TinCaps were the first to score in the contest, getting up to a 3-0 lead for an inning. The Loons were able to respond and make the comeback. The comeback included a four-run third inning, where six straight Loons safely reached base.
