On the season between High-A and Low-A, Leonard is hitting .309 with an OPS of .987 to go along with 21 home runs and 74 RBI.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

It was an exciting seventh inning, as the Las Vegas Aviators (Athletics) tied the game at four. Oklahoma City responded back with a run of their own, as they went on to win 5-4. Deacon Liput hit the go-ahead homer in the seventh inning, his third homer of the season.

Gavin Lux reached base three times as he had two hits and a walk. Zach McKinstry hit a homer, his third of the season.

Yefry Ramirez started the game, tossing five innings while allowing three runs.

Double-A Tulsa

They scored early, but the Drillers’ offense went quiet over the second half of the game as they fell to the Wichita Wind Surge (Twins) 8-6.

Kody Hoese singled in a run in the first inning and Devin Mann brought in a run on a sacrifice fly, putting the Drillers up 2-0 right away. Clayton Daniel then hit a two-run double in the fourth inning, doubling Tulsa’s lead to two runs. Michael Busch drove in two runs in the ninth inning to make it an 8-6 game, as the Drillers brought the tying run to the plate. Sadly, they couldn’t pull off the comeback.

Austin Drury struck out six in 3 13 innings and allowed two runs.

High-A Great Lakes

It was a home run party in Lake County, as the Loons hit five home runs in their 10-2 victory over the Lake County Captains (Indians).

Eddys Leonard led the way, as he hit three homers himself. His first came in the fourth inning as he hit a solo shot to put the Loons up 3-1. He then hit a two-run shot an inning later, putting GL ahead 7-1. Leonard then hit his third in the ninth inning, another solo shot. The 20-year-old continues to have an amazing season in the minors, as he’s split time between Low-A and High-A. In 23 games with the Loons he’s hitting .348 with an OPS of 1.116. On the season he has 21 total homers.

Brandon Lewis hit his 18th homer of the season for the Loons and his 29th overall, which leads the Dodgers’ affiliates. Andy Pages is right behind him, as his homer in the eighth gave him 26 on the season.

Quiet day from the offense, as the Quakes fell to the Visalia Rawhide (DBacks) 8-1. Rancho actually scored first, as Ismael Alcantara singled in a run in the second inning. The Rawhide then scored eight unanswered runs.

Kendall Williams got the start and allowed only one run in five innings. He also added four strikeouts. Braydon Fisher followed and allowed five runs and recorded only two outs.
