All four full-season affiliates, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Rancho Cucamonga and Great Lakes won on Tuesday. Ogden split a pair of games, they won the game they continued from last week and lost the regularly scheduled game.

However, AZL Dodgers Mota lost their playoff game so their season ended on Tuesday.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers hit four home runs in their 5-2 win over the Iowa Cubs. Edwin Rios hit a solo home run to give the Dodgers an early one-run lead. Kyle Garlick hit two home runs and drove in three runs.

And then there was this shot by Gavin Lux.

Logan Bawcom made the start and pitched 6⅓ innings for the Dodgers. He gave up one run and three hits.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers won their fourth straight game as they beat the Amarillo Sod Poodles (Padres) 8-4 on Tuesday. Markus Solbach made the start and he pitched 5⅔ innings and gave up four unearned runs and 10 hits.

The Drillers had 16 hits and five players had multi-hit games. Connor Wong and Errol Robinson each had three hits. And it was two hits apiece for Drew Avans, Jeter Downs and Carlos Rincon.

Wong and Downs each homered for the Drillers.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes opened their last regular season home stand with a 4-1 win over the Lake Elsinore Storm (Padres). Wills Montgomerie won his ninth game of the season with a five-inning outing.

Montgomerie allowed one runs and six hits. He struck out four and walked one.

Jeter Kendall and Dillon Paulson each had three hits. For Paulson, he hit two doubles and homered. Kendall also homered and doubled.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons outscored the Lansing Lugnuts (Blue Jays) in their 12-9 win on Tuesday. The Loons had 15 hits including three home runs by Sam McWilliams, Luke Heyer and Justin Yurchak.

Mark Washington picked up his fourth win and Edward Cuello pitched two scoreless innings to finish the game.

The win was also put the Loons 20 games over .500 on the road, they are now 42-22 away from home.

Advanced Rookie Ogden

The Raptors and the Rocky Mountain Vibes (Brewers) split a pair of games at Ogden. The Raptors scored two runs in the eighth and two more in the ninth to win 5-2 and then the Vibes won 4-3 in the nightcap.

Andy Pages hit two home runs, a solo homer and then a two-run shot that gave the Raptors their three-run lead.

Pages has played the entire season at Ogden. He is hitting .284/.395/.617 with 18 doubles and 15 home runs. The 18-year old (he’ll turn 19 in December).

Pages also had the unique experience of hitting a home run a week ago at Rocky Mountain where the first game had started but then suspended due to weather. Pages hit his second home run at Ogden.

Elio Serrano was able to pitch eight innings for the win because he too started the game last week and then since he was still “pitching” he was able to pitch a season high eight innings.

The Vibes were able to hang on to their one-run lead in the second game despite a late rally by the Raptors.
