Player of the game
Rangel Ravelo continued his incredible start to the season. He hit two homers on Friday and drove in six runs and is still hitting above .400 for the year. Truly incredible.
Triple-A Oklahoma City
The Dodgers offense piled on the offense early on as they took down the Skeeters, 10-1. Back-to-back doubles from Zach Reks and Keibert Ruiz in the first inning gave them the early lead. They would hold onto the lead the entire game.
Ruiz hit a solo homer in the third and was followed by a solo home run from Rangel Ravelo. The Dodgers then added five runs an inning later. Remember how I just mentioned Ravelo? Yeah, he’s back. He hit a grand slam in the fourth inning, his seventh homer of the season. He’s now hitting .413 on the season with an incredible OPS of 1.295.
Yefry Ramirez made the start for OKC. He went four innings, allowing only one run on two hits. He also had three strikeouts.
The Drillers out-hit the Naturals, but they couldn’t deliver the runs when needed as they lost, 4-3. For the game, Tulsa was 3-for-14 with runners in scoring position and stranded 11 runners on base. The game could have been blown open multiple times, but they just didn’t capitalize on all their opportunities.
Ryan Noda and Romer Cuadrado each had three hits and Jeren Kendall had two.
Michael Grove started for Tulsa, throwing 4 1⁄3 innings while allowing two runs. He also had six strikeouts.
High-A Great Lakes
The Loons scored eight runs over a three-inning stretch as they defeated the Whitecaps, 9-4. After falling behind in the fifth inning, Zac Ching and Andy Pages each hit solo homers to put Great Lakes up, 3-2.
They fell behind again in the sixth, but responded with two runs again to re-take the lead. With two outs, Ching tripled in two runs to put the Loons up a run. They then scored four runs an inning later while recording only two hits.
Alec Gamboa had his best outing of the season. He went five innings and allowed two runs while striking out three.
Low-A Rancho Cucamonga
It was a forgetful night for the Quakes, as they fell to the 66ers, 14-5. There was actually a pitcher who came out of the game looking pretty good. Carlos De Los Santos struck out four and didn’t allow a hit in 2 1⁄3 innings of action. Every other pitcher combined to allow 14 runs in 6 2⁄3 innings of action.
