The Dodgers now have two affiliates that have advanced to their championship series. Tulsa, who will start play tonight, is in their third straight Texas League Championship series and they will be going for back-to-back championships. JoJo Gray will be on the mound for them to start this series.
Ogden, who won the Pioneer League title in 2017 is now back playing for the Pioneer League championship. They won their first series 2 games to none over the Grand Junction Rockies. They will play either Billings or Idaho Falls in the championship series later this week.
Advanced Rookie Ogden
The Raptors got a two-out walk-off single to beat the Rockies 6-5 in ten innings on Monday. The win gave the Raptors a 2-0 sweep of their playoff series. They will advance to the Pioneer League Championship series that begins later this week.
The bottom of the tenth started when Jorbit Vivas was hit-by-a-pitch with one out. Marco Hernandez singled Vivas to third. After a strikeout, an error on the ball hit by Ramon Rodriguez allowed Vivas to score and give the game and the series to the Raptors.
Andy Pages had hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth to give the Raptors a one-run lead. Then in the eighth inning, after the Rockies had tied the score, Sauryn Lao hit a solo home run to put the Raptors back in front.
The Rockies would come back to tie the game again in the top of the ninth setting up the final rally by the Raptors in the tenth inning.
