Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Dodgers powered their way to an 8-2 victory over the Memphis Redbirds to avoid a sweep.
Connor Joe and Edwin Rios hit back-to-back home runs in the third inning for their 14th and 22nd dingers of the season, respectively. DJ Peters — who also has 22 home runs this season — and Jon Kemmer also got in on the home run fun with their turns each in the seventh inning.
This offense came behind Dustin May’s stellar performance on the mound. In just his fifth start in Triple-A, he pitched six innings and only allowed one earned run and three hits. He retired 13-straight batters while dealing six strikeouts. His Triple-A record is now 3-0 and his overall record is 6-5.
