It was a successful day across the minor-leagues, as seven out of the nine Dodgers teams picked up a victory.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
The offense didn’t slow down for the Dodgers, as they defeated the Bees, 9-3. With the exception of Austin Barnes, every player in the starting lineup recorded a hit. In his first game with OKC, Barnes went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts.
The Dodgers tied things up in the fourth inning thanks to a two-run homer from Kyle Garlick. It was the 19th homer of the season for him. They took the lead an inning later, as Edwin Rios hit his team-leading 23rd homer of the year to put OKC up 5-2. More runs would be sprinkled on later, as they scored a run in three of the final four innings.
Brock Stewart had one of the better starts of his season. He pitched five innings, allowing only two runs and striking out eight.
The Drillers fell in extras, losing to the RockHounds, 5-4. After a wild pitch advanced the runner to third in the 10th, Tyler Ramirez flew out to hand Tulsa the loss. It looked as if the Drillers would take home the win, as they entered the bottom of the eighth leading 4-0. Five hits and two hits from Midland would tie things up in the inning.
Tulsa finished the game with 11 hits, and five different players had a multi-hit game. They just couldn’t get them when they mattered, as they went 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position and stranded eight runners on base.
Single-A Rancho Cucamonga
A four-run seventh inning was the determining factor in the Quakes’ 7-6 victory over the JetHawks. As they entered the inning tied at three-a-piece, Donovan Casey hit a two-run shot for his 19th homer of the season, putting Rancho up two runs. Miguel Vargas would hit a solo homer, his first of the year, giving his team the three-run edge. They’d tack on another run a few innings later thanks to a Stevie Berman single. It was one of three hits for him on the night.
Andre Jackson picked up his third win with the Quakes. He struck out seven in six innings. In 21 starts across Great Lakes and Rancho Cucamonga, Jackson is 7-2 with a 2.95 ERA.
High-A Great Lakes
The Loons jumped out ahead early and never looked back, as they defeated the TinCaps, 6-4. Dodgers first-round pick Kody Hoese got things started in the first with an RBI double. Jacob Amaya would shortly follow with a double of his own, making it 3-0 Great Lakes after one.
Three consecutive hits to begin the fifth would plate another run, and a home run from Leonel Valera in the seventh made it 6-4.
A single from Sam McWilliams in the ninth gave Ogden the lead and the win, as they defeated the Rockies 4-3. Entering the ninth tied up, back-to-back singles have the Raptors hope. After both advanced to second and third, McWilliams gave his team the win.
