Connor Wong celebrates walk-off hit
Tim Campbell

Saturday was a much better day on the Dodgers farm than Friday, with three of four full-season teams pulling off a win. The Drillers game was the most exciting — they came back to win after being down by four runs.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers lost their third straight game after a 15-3 game against the San Antonio Missions.

Edwin Ríos led the team on offense with the 2-run homer he hit in the top of the first inning. Cameron Perkins and Jose Lobaton hit back-to-back doubles in the fourth inning to round out the rest of the Dodgers runs.

Justin De Fratus started in his eighth game and earned his fifth loss since joining OKC. He pitched five innings and looked good, except for giving up six runs in an inning. The inning featured six hits and one walk, including a grand slam.

Double-A Tulsa

Connor Wong hit a walk-off base hit in the 10th inning to lift the Drillers to a 6-5 win over the Hooks.

Wong led the team with three hits on the night, and Jeter Downs closely trailed with two hits of his own. In addition to two hits, Downs had two RBIs and scored one run.

Edwin Uceta pitched a decent game, allowing four hits, two walks and three runs (two earned) over four innings of work. Yordy Cabrera pitched an inning of relief and allowed a 2-run home run.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes won their 76th game of the year behind a solid start from Gerardo Carrillo.

Carrillo pitched seven innings and held the 66ers to two runs from four hits and two walks. He struck out a career high 11 batters in the win.

The Quakes offense had a huge fifth inning. Deacon Liput, Starling Heredia and Miguel Vargas each hit home runs to total five runs.

Devin Mann also had a lovely night, going 2-for-4 and led the team with two RBIs.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons bested the Lansing Lugnuts on Saturday night in a 8-1 game.

Great Lakes got off to a very early lead after a 4-run rally after getting five straight hits. Leonel Valera led the team with three RBIs. He also had three hits, but Justin Yurchak had the edge with four hits.

Robinson Ortiz earned a win after pitching one of his best games of the season. He tossed seven innings and only allowed one run on four hits and a walk. This outing helped lower his ERA passed the 5.00 mark to 4.82.

Advanced Rookie Ogden

The Raptors got a ninth inning rally going, but it wasn’t enough to beat the Rockies in a 7-5 loss.

Before the ninth, Ogden only managed to get four hits and score three runs. Aldrich De Jongh went 2-for-4 with two runs scored. He got the late inning rally started with a leadoff triple and eventually came in to score.

Jeronimo Castro pitched five innings and allowed the Rockies to get six hits, three walks and four runs (three earned). Hunter Speer allowed the other two Rockies runs in his 1 13 innings appearance where he allowed two hits and one walk.
