The offense was quiet across the board for the Dodger affiliated teams on Sunday ... with the exception of Ogden. They alone made up for all the other teams combined, as the Raptors exploded for 19 runs, with 11 coming in the third inning.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
An eight-run inning from the Express was all it took, as the Dodgers fell to Round Rock 11-2. The Express scored eight runs in the fourth inning, doing their damage against Dennis Santana. In 3 2⁄3 innings, Santana allowed 10 runs on nine hits. His ERA for the season sits at 7.47, and his record is now 2-7.
On the offensive side, the Dodgers couldn’t really string anything together. They had only five hits, and were 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position. Connor Joe provided most of the offense, going 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored.
The Drillers scored three runs in the seventh inning as the defeated the Naturals 4-0. With only a one-run lead, Christian Santana led the inning off with a single. Chris Parmelee then walked, and Cody Thomas singled to load the bases with no outs. After back-to-back outs, the bases remained loaded for Logan Landon. He doubled to right, clearing the bases, and giving the Drillers the 4-0 lead.
Justin De Fratus gave Tulsa seven strong innings. He didn’t allow a run, and only gave up four hits. More impressively, he finished with six strikeouts and zero walks.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
Corey Seager and A.J. Pollock both made rehab appearances with the Quakes, as Rancho picked up the 6-1 win over the Storm.
Both players went hitless, going a combined 0-for-5 at the plate. Each player struck out as well. It’s expected that they will each play one more rehab game before joining the Dodgers on Friday.
Josiah Gray had another great start. He threw seven innings, striking out six and allowing only 1 walk. In the minors this season, he’s a combined 7-0 with a 2.26 ERA and 0.99 WHIP.
Class-A Great Lakes
The Loons jumped ahead to a 2-0 lead, but a comeback from the TinCaps helped them pick up the 3-2 victory.
Great Lakes were unable to capitalize on their opportunities, as they went 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position and left four runners on base. Jacob Amaya had two of the three hits from the Loons. One was a home run, his fifth of the season.
Advanced Rookie Ogden
The Raptors exploded for 11 runs in the third inning, as they defeated the Vibes, 19-8. Ogden scored six runs in the first two innings, and went up 17-0 after the third.
Five different Raptors had a multi-hit game. Andy Pages led the way, driving in five runs and scoring three of his own, including his seventh homer of the season. Joe Vranesh had a big day at the plate as well, driving in four runs and scoring three of his own. As a team, the Raptors were 8-for-17 with runners in scoring position and stranded 10 runners on base.
