Player of the day

Aldrich De Jongh had himself quite a game for the Quakes, as he finished with four hits. Two of those hits were home runs, his first two of the season.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

A late attempt of a rally wasn’t enough, as the Dodgers fell to the Isotopes, 8-4. Nothing really to take away from this game, aside from it being the 1,000th career pro game for Andy Burns!

Friday’s OKC game will have added interest, as Cody Bellinger and Zach McKinstry are expected to begin their rehab assignments with them.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers had only three hits for the game, but it was enough as they picked up the 4-3 win. Tulsa scored three runs in the second inning to take the early lead. After a Devin Mann walk, Jacob Amaya hit his second homer of the season, putting the Drillers ahead 2-0.

After back-to-back runners reached base, Kody Hoese drove in a run with a single to extend the lead to three. The offense would go quiet until the eighth, as their next hit wasn’t until Mann hit a home run to give them what ultimately ended up being the game-winning run.

Ryan Pepiot started for Tulsa and threw four innings of shutout baseball. He allowed only one hit and struck out three.

High-A Great Lakes

After falling behind 1-0 in the top of the first, Carson Taylor singled in two to give the Loons a lead. The Captains retook the lead in the second, but the Loons answered back in the bottom of the third. Miguel Vargas led off the inning with his third homer of the season to tie the game. Taylor then singled in another run, his third RBI of the night, giving GL a 4-3 lead.

Andy Pages led off the fifth inning with a homer, his first of the season. His solo shot gave the Loons a two-run lead, and that would be enough for the remainder of the game.

The pitching was solid. Jose Martinez went four innings and allowed two runs. He punched out three and issued only one free pass. Cole Percival threw three innings of scoreless ball with three strikeouts and Melvin Jimenez closed the door with two scoreless innings with two strikeouts.

Low-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Storm tied things up in the 9th and then won it in the 10th, beating the Quakes, 7-6. Kendall Williams got the start for Rancho, allowing three runs in 4 13 innings with three strikeouts. Braydon Fisher relieved him, allowing one run in 3 13 innings with five strikeouts.

Aldrich De Jongh had the hot bat for the Quakes, as he finished the game with four hits, including two home runs.
