The three Dodgers full-season affiliates in action on Wednesday all won, highlighted by a slump-busting hot streak.

Player of the day

Double-A Tulsa infielder Clayton Daniel singled home the winning run for the Drillers in the seventh inning on Wednesday. Daniel also walked and had another single, reaching base in all three plate appearances on Wednesday as the designated hitter.

Daniel, acquired from the Cubs in January 2020 for pitcher Casey Sadler, was in a hellacious slump in Double-A, going 0-for-21 from June 19 to July 11. But the 26-year-old snapped out of that with four multi-hit games in a row, going 10-for-13 (.769) with a home run. He’s reached base in his last six plate appearances.

Double-A Tulsa

Ryan Pepiot proved human, allowing three whole hits and two runs, but still pitched well in Tulsa’s home win over the Northwest Arkansas Naturals (Royals). Pepiot allowed a two-run home run in the first but that was it in his 5⅓ innings, striking out seven while only walking one.

Right-hander Andrew Schwaab struck out three in his 2⅓ scoreless innings of relief to earn the win. Third baseman Miguel Vargas also had a two-hit game.

Before the game, Tulsa bid adieu to outfielder Carlos Rincon, who was traded to the Mets for Billy KnKinney:

High-A Great Lakes

Four Loons pitchers combined to shut out the Lake County Captains (Cleveland). Alec Gamboa led the way with five strikeouts in his five scoreless frames, allowing only two singles. Lefty Franklin De La Paz struck out three in two scoreless innings of relief. The 22-year-old, signed out the Dominican Republic in 2017, has allowed only one unearned run in 9⅓ innings since getting promoted from Low-A, with 12 strikeouts.

Great Lakes hit three solo home runs, by Andy Pages, James Outman, and Joe Vranesh.

Low-A Rancho Cucamonga

Jorbit Vivas’ grand slam in the third inning was the big blow that lifted the Quakes over the Visalia Rawhide (Diamondbacks). Sauryn Lao, playing third base on Wednesday, doubled, singled twice, stole a base, and scored two runs in the win.

Sam McWilliams hit a two-run triple in the fourth inning.

Transactions

Triple-A: Sheldon Neuse was recalled from Oklahoma City. Darien Núñez was optioned. Jake Reed was designated for assignment.
