The Drillers and Quakes were the only two teams to lose in Dodgers affiliate games, while all other teams came out on top.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Oklahoma City Dodgers-Nashville Sounds game was canceled due to inclement weather. The game will not be made up.
The Drillers lost to the Sod Poodles 9-3 in a seven inning game. Shortened due to rain, the Drillers were unable to complete a comeback to finish the sweep over the Sod Poodles.
Markus Solbach was responsible for allowing all nine of Amarillo’s runs in the contest. A majority of these runs came in the third inning, where the Sod Poodles had rally to score seven runs. It was his first loss since being assigned to the Drillers on July 28. His ERA dramatically increased from 1.03 to 3.77 after this start.
Jeter Downs, Carlos Rincon and Drew Avans each hit a solo home run to contribute to the Drillers’ three runs of the night.
Class-A Rancho Cucamonga
The Quakes dropped the series to the Lake Elsinore Storm with a 3-2 extra-inning loss on Thursday night. Rancho Cucamonga held a 2-0 lead for nearly two innings when the Storm tied the game in the fifth. This score held until the 10th, when the Storm walked-off with a sacrifice fly off Brett de Geus. The losing run was credited to Austin Drury, who took the loss.
Jacob Amaya and Dillon Paulson were the youngsters to get an RBI for the Quakes. Miguel Vargas led the team with three hits, but didn’t score or drive in any runs.
Overall, the team went 2-for-15 with runners in scoring position and left 10 runners stranded on base.
Class-A Great Lakes
