Not a great day from the minor-league affiliates, as they went 1-3 on Saturday.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
Yeah, this one wasn’t pretty. OKC lost 13-1. For the game, they had three hits and two of them came from Rangel Ravelo, one of which was a solo home run. We’ll just call it a day with this one.
The Drillers scored all of their runs in the first inning. Luckily for them, it was enough as they took down the Naturals, 4-3.
After back-to-back walks to begin the game, Donovan Casey singled in a run to give them the lead. A few hitters later, Devin Mann doubled in two runs to give Tulsa the 4-0 edge. As mentioned, those would be the only runs for the remainder of the game. They had plenty of chances, too. For the game, they were 2-for-11 with runners in scoring position and stranded 12 runners on base.
Gerardo Carrillo started but didn’t last long. He threw 1 2⁄3 innings and allowed two runs. He also struck out four.
High-A Great Lakes
The Loons scored a run and recorded two hits in the first inning. They’d only have one hit the rest of the game, as they fell to the Whitecaps, 2-1. James Outman hit a solo home run in the first, and that was the lone run of the game.
Clayton Beeter started and threw a scoreless inning with three strikeouts. Jesus Vargas relieved him and threw four scoreless innings with three strikeouts. Jeff Belge later in the game threw 1 2⁄3 innings of scoreless ball and struck out three.
2020 No. 1 pick and former Sun Devil (GO ASU!) hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Low-A Rancho Cucamonga
The Quakes rallied late, but their deficit was just too much to overcome as they fell to the Nuts, 9-7.
Trailing by five runs in the seventh inning, the Quakes had a four-run inning to pull to within one run. Plus, they did it all with two outs. RC worked three straight walks and then Brandon Lewis singled in two. Alex De Jesus then singled, bringing in two runs to bring the Quakes to within one. With the go-ahead run on base, RC couldn’t capitalize and tie the game or take the lead.
They’d have multiple runners on base in the eighth and ninth, but failed to bring in any runs. For the game, the Quakes were 2-for-11 with runners in scoring position and stranded eight on base.
