OKC Dodgers 4 vs Sugar Land Space Cowboys (Astros) 5

On the Mound

Jon Duplantier started for the Dodgers and had one of his best recent outings. He logged five scoreless innings giving up only two hits while walking three and striking out nine.

Blake Treinen on a rehab assignment followed Duplantier and  pitched a clean inning with three strikeouts.

Right-hander Hansel Robles was unable to hold down the fort and gave up two runs in the seventh inning on two hits and a walk.

Jake Reed climbed the hill for the eighth inning and pitched a scoreless inning on one hit along with a strikeout.

Carson Fulmer came on to pitch the bottom of the ninth inning and after allowing two base runners induced a double play to send the game into extra innings. Fulmer returned for the bottom of the tenth inning and was not able to shut down the Space Cowboys.  Following the placement of the ghost runner, Sugar Land scored two runs on a pair of doubles and the last runner advancing to third base on  a wild pitch. The next batter with one out was walked intentionally.

Heath Hembree was called upon to strand runners on first and third with one out.  The Space Cowboys then squeezed home the winning run on a bunt down the first base line.


At the Plate


The Dodgers scored a lone run in the top of the second inning on a James Outman walk, a Ryan Noda single and a Jacob Amaya RBI single.

In the top of the tenth inning Jacob Amaya started at second base and came home on a Devin Mann double. The Dodgers scored again on an Edwin Rios ground out following a Miguel Vargas IBB.

Great Lakes Loons 7 vs Lansing Lugnuts (A’s) 12

On the Mound

The Loons had scored 12 runs in three consecutive games against the Lugnuts  and it appeared they might need a dozen or so to win the game on Sunday.

Ryan Sublette pitched the first 1.1 innings in a relief pitcher game and gave up two unearned runs on a hit and walk while striking out three. He was the victim of his own mishaps with  a HBP and a  throwing error.

Ben Casparius was the Loons third pitcher and he allowed the flood gates to open giving up five earned runs over 2.1 innings pitched.

Jeff Belge took over for Casparius and stranded the runner he inherited in the  sixth inning before striking out the side in the bottom of the seventh inning.  Belge has struck out 9 out of the last 10 batters he has faced.

Braydon Fisher came on in the bottom of the eighth inning and things did not go  well. Following a double lost in the sun by Harold Restituyo and two walks,  a stolen base and two singles the Lugnuts scored three more runs taking an 11-6 lead.


At the Plate

In the top of the second inning the Loons pushed across four runs on RBI singles by Kekai Rios, Eddys Leonard and a two-run single by Jorbit Vivas.

They scored another run in the third inning on back-to-back doubles by Austin Gauthier and Luis Yanel Diaz.

Player of the Game

Kekai Rios was a bright spot with three hits and two runs batted in.
