It was wins all around for the Dodger minor league organization on Tuesday as Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Rancho Cucamonga and Ogden all won.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Dodgers were able to split their four-game series against the Aces (Diamondbacks) by winning 10-6 on Tuesday. After going down by two runs in the top of the first, the Dodgers strung together six straight hits to take a two-run lead.
Eventually the game would be tied at 6-6 after the top of the seventh inning but then DJ Peters singled home Austin Barnes to break the tie. Later, Connor Joe would single home two more runs and the Dodgers had a lead they would not lose.
Josh Sborz had given up the tying run in the seventh but he would pitch a scoreless eighth inning on his way to his fourth win of the season.
Peters, Zach Reks and Joe each had three hits. Two hits apiece for Gavin Lux and Jedd Gyorko. So far in seven games played in his rehab assignments at both Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Gyorko is 8-for-19 with a double and two home runs. Gyorko has walked four times and three strikeouts.
The Drillers scored five runs in the fourth inning to take the lead and they finished the game with three runs in the seventh and six runs in the eighth to beat the Cardinals 15-5 at ONEOK Field.
Ryan Moseley collected his fourth win for Tulsa. He pitched two scoreless innings with two strikeouts.
Donovan Casey, Cody Thomas, Angelo Mora and Eric Peterson each had two hits for the Drillers. Connor Wong hit a solo home run.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
The Quakes overcame multi-run deficits twice on their way to a 13-10 win against the Nuts (Mariners) at LoanMart Field. Trailing by two runs in the eighth inning, the Quakes scored five runs capped by a Miguel Vargas two-run single to break the 10-10 tie.
Deacon Liput went 3-for-4 with a triple and two RBI. Brayan Morales, Vargas, Jeren Kendall and Starling Heredia each had two hits. Kendall hit a two-run homer in the seventh to start the Quakes comeback.
Brett de Geus pitched the last 2⅓ innings to earn the win.
Class-A Great Lakes
The Loons had their last regular season off-day. They will begin a series at West Michigan to play the Whitecaps (Tigers) this evening.
Advanced Rookie Ogden
The Raptors got a clutch home run in the ninth inning and then after stranding three runners in the top of the tenth, the Raptors were able to walk-off the Osprey (Diamondbacks) with a 3-2 win in ten innings.
Andy Pages hit the game-tying home run in the bottom of the ninth inning.
In the top of the tenth, the Osprey loaded the bases with no outs. The Raptors brought in 2019 26th round pick right-handed pitcher Mark Mixon.
Mixon would get the first hitter to pop up and the infield fly rule was called. He then got a force play at home for the second out. Then he recorded his one strikeout to retire the side.
In the bottom of the tenth, the runner on second, Jeremy Arocho, moved to third on a passed ball. Then with one out, Jorbit Vivas punched ground ball single to right to score the winning run.
With 1 out, Jorbit Vivas delivers.— StandardEx Raptors (@RaptorsSE) August 14, 2019
