The big story of the night was Corey Seager playing in his first rehab game with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes at Inland Empire, the Quakes would win going away. In other action, Oklahoma City won both games in their double-header, Tulsa and Great Lakes each lost a close game and Ogden rallied late to pull out a win.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
In the first game, J.D. Martin pitched five innings and gave up three runs but he was able to get the win. The Dodgers trailed by a run in the first but DJ Peters hit a two-run homer to put the Dodgers in front.
With the game tied 2-2, Jake Peter doubled home a run and Drew Jackson scored another on a sacrifice fly.
In the second game, Mitch White pitched 5⅓ scoreless innings to get the win. Caleb Ferguson got the save with one strikeout.
The only run scored when Lux came home on a Zach Reks single in the third inning.
The Drillers could not get anything going at the plate in their 3-1 loss to the Naturals (Royals). Zach McKinstry hit a solo home run but otherwise there was no offense as the Drillers went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
The Quakes already led by five but then they scored ten runs in the top of the ninth on their way to a 16-1 win over the 66ers (Angels). Two of the Quakes 19 hits belonged to Corey Seager who went 2-for-2 with an RBI before leaving the game. As per Roberts, Seager will play two more games between today and Monday with the Quakes and then the plan will be for him to join the team in Boston.
Similarly, Pollock will also continue to play with the Quakes, per Roberts, it sounds like he will play every game between today and Monday and then rejoin the team in Boston.
A.J. Pollock went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in his second rehab game with the Quakes.
Connor Wong, Niko Hulsizer and Starling Heredia each had three hits. Hulsizer, Heredia and Jaren Kendall homered for the Quakes.
Class-A Great Lakes
The Loons started a 2019 draft pick and he pitched well. But then the Lugnuts (Blue Jays) were able to put up just enough runs to hang on to a 5-4 win.
Jack Little started for the Loons and pitched three scoreless innings. The 2019 5th round pick gave up a hit and had one strikeout in his Midwest League debut.
However Joel Chacin would give up five runs in his six innings of work and the Loons late rally just fell short.
Advanced Rookie Ogden
The Raptors trailed by a run going to the bottom of the eighth but then they scored three runs and went on to beat the Vibes (Brewers) 6-4. The win gave the Raptors a 15-5 record and a five-game lead over the second-place Vibes.
In the eighth inning, with two out, Andy Pages stole second and he would score when Brandon Lewis hit his first home run as a Raptor. That gave Ogden a one-run lead but then moments later, Ryan Ward hit a solo home run to make it 6-4.
