It was a quiet day for Dodger minor-league affiliates, as the Tulsa Drillers were the only team of the five major ones to record a win.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
It was a rough outing for Dennis Santana, as he allowed nine runs on 12 hits in four short innings, as the Dodgers fell to the Bees, 14-4. The 2019 campaign has been an overall rough one for the 23-year-old, as he’s now 4-9 with a 7.83 ERA on the year. Opponents are hitting .309 against him, and his WHIP sits at 1.84.
On the offensive side, it was a surprisingly quiet night for the offense. They finished with only six hits, and were only 1-for-5 with runners in scoring position.
The Drillers won a close one over the Naturals, defeating them 1-0 in a true pitchers duel. Parker Curry have Tulsa eight strong innings, striking out eight, walking none and allowing only five hits. On the other side, Daniel Tillo was nearly just as good. He threw seven scoreless innings for Northwest Arkansas, striking out five and allowing only two hits.
Tulsa took the lead in the bottom of the eighth, after Drew Avans singled in Logan Landon, giving the Drillers the only run of the ballgame.
Single-A Rancho Cucamonga
A sixth-run second inning was too much for the Quakes to overcome, as they fell to the JetHawks, 9-3. Starting pitcher Michael Grove lasted only 1 2⁄3 innings, as he allowed five runs and two walks. He has yet to pick up a win with the Quakes, and is now 0-5 with an ERA of 6.95.
Catcher Tre Todd provided half of the Quakes’ hits on the night, as he went 4-for-4. Donovan Casey added two hits, and Jeter Downs had two RBI.
High-A Great Lakes
A ninth-inning comeback fell just short from the Loons, as they fell to the TinCaps, 10-9. Trailing by three entering the inning, the Loons got back-to-back home runs from James Outman and Luke Heyer to make it a one-run ballgame. Jacob Amaya singled and was followed by a walk from Justin Yurchak, putting the tying run on second and the game-winning run on first. 2019 first-round pick Kody Hoese couldn’t deliver a final heroic act, as he struck out to end the game.
