Player of the day

Rangel Ravelo had two hits for OKC and drove in two runs. In 16 games for the Dodgers this season, he’s hitting .382/.485/.709/1.194 with four home runs, six doubles and 13 runs driven in.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

Rangel Ravelo continued his hot start to the season, but the OKC offense couldn’t provide much more as they fell to El Paso, 6-4. Ravelo recorded two hits and drove in two runs, and is now hitting .390 with an OPS just under 1.200 on the season. He’s been the best hitter across all minor-league teams for the Dodgers so far.

Cody Bellinger and Zach McKinstry were each in the lineup and in the outfield. They each recorded one hit in their four at bats. The plan is still for them both to likely join the Dodgers at some point this weekend.

Yaisel Sierra allowed four runs on three hits in 13 of an inning. In 3 23 innings of action this season he’s allowed 10 runs to score on 15 hits.

Double-A Tulsa

After a slow offensive night, the bats woke up in the 13th (!!!) inning, as they took down Arkansas, 6-4. A 2-2 game entering the 13th, Tulsa added four runs. After a leadoff walk to Jacob Amaya, the Drillers had back-to-back outs. Devin Mann then doubled in two, putting Tulsa ahead, 4-2. Michael Busch then followed with a two-run home run, his sixth of the season.

Gerardo Carrillo started for Tulsa, striking out four in four innings while allowing one run (unearned).

High-A Great Lakes

A nine-run inning from the Loons was one of the craziest and most bizarre innings you’ll ever see, as they picked up a 10-1 win. To recap, here’s what happened in the sixth inning:

Error, walk, forceout, sacrifice bunt, hit by pitch, fielders choice, walk, sacrifice fly, walk, single, strikeout, single, groundout.

Talk about crazy!

Jesus Vargas pitched five innings for the Loons. He allowed only one run and struck out three.

Low-A Rancho Cucamonga

After coming from behind to tie the game in the ninth, the Quakes lost in extras, 5-3. Entering the ninth down two, RC recorded back-to-back singles. Brandon Lewis then doubled in both runs, tying the game up at three.

The Ports answered back with two in the top of the tenth to take the lead. Eddys Leonard led off the bottom of the tenth with a walk, bringing the game-winning run to the plate. The Quakes couldn’t deliver any last-minute magic, as they stranded both runners to lose the game.

Carlos Duran went three innings for the Quakes and eight of his nine recorded outs came via the strikeout.
