Only three full-season Dodgers affiliates played on Tuesday, going 3-for-3. Highlighting the day was Leo Crawford’s debut with the Tulsa Drillers.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers were off on Tuesday and will begin a 3-game set against the Tacoma Rainiers on Wednesday.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers had it all going in their 10-0 win over the Springfield Cardinals.

Perhaps the most impressive performance of the day came from starting pitcher Leo Crawford, who made his Double-A debut on Tuesday. He carried a perfect game into the fifth inning. The perfect game and no-hitter was washed away when Lars Nootbar (USC alumnus) started a rally with a base hit. Two more batters followed with singles, but Crawford escaped the threat with 2-straight strikeouts.

Crawford finished his night after six scoreless innings. He only allowed the three hits and didn’t dish out a walk. His 11 strikeouts set a new season high for the left hander.

Behind the stellar pitching performance was the Drillers offense. They combined for 13 hits and seven walks on the night to score their 10 runs. Drew Avans and Errol Robinson each hit home runs while Omar Estevez and Cody Thomas both had three hits.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes powered to a 5-1 over Lancaster, despite being outhit.

Jeren Kendall and Marcus Chiu provided the dingers of the night, hitting their 14th and 13th homers of the year, respectively. Starling Heredia also brought power to the plate with an RBI triple. It was his sixth triple of the year, which is tied for third on the Quakes.

Michael Grove pitched 3 13 innings as the starting pitcher, allowing the JetHawks to get three hits in the no-decision. Austin Hamilton provided long relief out of the bullpen with a scoreless three inning appearance. He allowed seven hits and one walk while striking out three.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons battled against the South Bend Cubs, ending up on top with a 6-2 score.

It was the offense that carried the team to the win. Leonel Valera has been great in the batter’s box this series, getting five hits in 16 at-bats. In the final game against the Cubs, he hit a solo home run for his fourth of the season. Chris Roller, who has the fourth best batting average on the team, went 1-for-3 with two walks, two RBIs and two runs.

Kody Hoese found a way to get on base yet again, with a walk. This extends his on-base streak to 13 games.

Jose Martinez started on the mound and pitched six innings in a no-decision. He looked much better than his previous start, holding the opposing team to four hits, two walks and two runs.

Advanced Rookie Ogden

The Raptors are on their All-Star break and will continue play on Thursday against Idaho Falls (Royals).
