MiLB Game Summary Reports – 04-27-2024

Weekends are tougher for me to write a post with a lot of away soccer and hockey games.  I got home and only had the energy to write up the MiLB Game Summary Reports.




Albuquerque Isotopes (Colorado) 10 – OKC Baseball Club 7

Eduardo Salazar started for OKC and was battered around in his 3.2 IP.  He gave up 9 runs which was one more than his previous 4 starts combined.  But then again, none of those were in Albuquerque.

Tanner Dodson allowed a HR in the 5th for the 10th run.  Braydon Fisher and Jesse Hahn kept the Isotopes off the board the final three innings.

In the 2nd inning, Ryan Ward singled and scored on a Kody Hoese double.  In the 4th, Andre Lipcius hit a 3-run HR, and this would prove to be the last time OKC was in the game.

OKC did load the bases with 3 singles in the 5th with one out, but did not score.

In the 8th, Ryan Ward drew a walk and scored on Kody Hoese’s 2nd double of the game.  Hoese came around to score on 2 wild pitches.

Miguel Vargas slugged his 5th HR, his first since April 3, for the final run by OKC, as they fell short by 3.

Trey Sweeney had 2 singles in his 5 AB.  Sweeney has now reached base in each of the 25 games he has appeared in this year.  He is on a 7-game hitting streak (16-35 – .457).

Kody Hoese had 2 doubles, and has a hit in 16 of the 18 games he has played this year.  How he has started the season, has to raise the eyebrows of all who had given up on him.  I do not think he will get a legit chance at LAD, but he sure deserves a chance at trying to show what he has at the MLB level.

  • Miguel Vargas – 2-5, 2 runs, 1 RBI, HR (5)
  • Trey Sweeney – 2-5
  • Andre Lipcius – 2-5, 1 run, 3 RBI, HR (3)
  • Ryan Ward – 3-4, 1 BB, 2 runs
  • Kody Hoese – 2-4, 1 run, 2 RBI, 2 doubles (6)


Box Score


Great Lakes Loons 14 – Fort Wayne TinCaps (Padres) 3

This was a much anticipated match between a pair of young first round picks.  22 year old LHP Maddux Bruns was making his 2024 debut for the Loons, and 20 year old RHP Dylan Lesko starting for the TinCaps.  This was the second time Lesko has faced the Loons.  The last time he threw four shutout innings, no hits, 3 BB, 1 HBP, 1 K.

Well the anticipation was short lived as Bruns did not get out of the 2nd inning and Lesko did not get out of the 3rd.

Bruns struck out the first two on 7 pitches, and got a F-7 3rd out.  That was 11 pitches, with the first 8 strikes and 9 of the 11.

In the 2nd, Great Lakes broke out with 3 on an Alex Freeland 3-run HR, following a Yunior Garcia double and a Jake Vogel BB.

After Bruns’ 1st inning, it was set up for him to pitch and not to throw. 1st batter drew a BB, followed by a single.  On a sac bunt, Bruns made an errant throw and one run scored with runners on 2nd and 3rd.  After a ground out, the 2nd run scored on a sacrifice fly.  The next two batters walked, and Bruns was lifted after 32 pitches in the 2nd for Kelvin Bautista.

Bruns final line –  1.2 IP, 3 runs (1 earned), 1 hit, 3 BB, 2 K, 43 pitches (25 strikes).

With the score knotted at 3-3, Lesko was in a position to take charge.

Dylan Campbell doubles to open the inning.  Chris Newell drew a 1 out BB.  Yunior Garcia drew a 2 out BB to load the bases.  Campbell scored on a WP.  Nick Biddison walked to load the bases again.  Jake Vogel drew a walk that plated Newell.  Lesko was pulled after 2.2 IP and 70 pitches.  The next pitcher hit Alex Freeland to force in the third run.

Singles by Campbell, Kyle Nevin, and Chris Newell brought in the Loons’ 7th run in the 4th.

The Loons scored their 8th run in the 6th with Kyle Nevin leading off and singling.  With one out, Tharon Liranzo singled and Nevin moved to third.  Nevin scored on a Garcia sac fly.

In the 7th, Thayron Liranzo hit a 3 run HR.  In the 9th, Liranzo was the key bat once again.  He hit a 2 run double, and scored the third run of the inning on a ground out.  Liranzo is finally showing signs of life.  He is 4-9 in the last two games with 2 doubles, a HR, and 5 RBI.

The Loons pitchers were dominant after the 2nd inning.  Kelvin Bautista and Michael Martinez pitched a scoreless and hitless inning each, before Christian Romero entered in the 5th.  He had help from a pair of DP, but in no inning did he allow 2 runners on the bases until the 9th.  He got the K to end the game.  Romero pitched 5.0 scoreless innings, 2 singles, 3 BB, and 4 K.  Romero threw 68 pitches in his 5.0 IP.

  • Alex Freeland – 2-4, 1 BB, 1 HBP, 1 run, 4 RBI, double (6), HR (2)
  • Dylan Campbell – 3-5, 1 HBP, 3 runs
  • Kyle Nevin – 3-6, 2 runs
  • Thayron Liranzo – 3-6, 2 runs, 5 RBI, double (4), HR (1)
  • Yunior Garcia – 1-4, 1 BB, 2 runs, 2 RBI, sacrifice fly, double (1)
  • Jake Vogel – 1-2, 3 BB, 1 run, 1 RBI
  • Chris Newell – 1-4, 2 BB, 2 runs, 1 RBI


Box Score


Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 7 – Lake Elsinore Storm (Padres) 4

Edgardo Henriquez started and completed 2.0 innings.  He faced 7 batters.  He walked 1 and struck out 6.

RC got on the board in the 1st.  Kendall George led off with a single and scored on 3 wild pitches.

Jose Rodriguez continued his stellar pitching.  He was not as dominant as he was in his last outing (04-21), he was still very good.  He completed 4.0 innings, 2 hits, 2 BB, and 6 K.  He did allow an unearned run in the 4th.  After the leadoff hitter reached on a fielding error, Rodriguez issued a walk. A single brought home the unearned run.  Rodriguez proceeded to strike out the next three batters after the single to retire the side.

RC got the run back in the bottom of the 4th.  A walk, single, and two HBP forced in a run.

RC broke it open in the 6th while scoring 5.  Carlos Rojas singled, and Jordan Thompson drew a BB.  Both runners came home on a Logan Wagner triple.  Wagner scored on a single by Jefferson Valladares.  Juan Alonso doubled putting runners on 2nd and 3rd.  Both runners scored on a WP and sac fly.

Joseilyn Gonzalez allowed two runs in the 7th and another in the 8th to let the Storm creep back into the game.  But Reynaldo Yean entered in the 9th to close it out.  He walked one but struck out the side for his 2nd save.

  • Carlos Rojas – 2-3, 1 run
  • Logan Wagner – 1-3, 1 HBP, 1 run, 2 RBI, triple (1)
  • Jeral Perez – 1-4, Sac Fly, 1 RBI
  • Juan Alonso – 1-2, 1 BB, 1 HBP, 1 run, 1 RBI, double (4)
  • Zyhir Hope – 1-4, double (8)


Box Score

Dylan Campbell: a guy?

Last edited 19 days ago by Dionysus

Sure seems to be… . He was a 3-year starter at University or Texas, so he’s a bit older and more experienced than Rancho guys like Kendall George, Zyhir Hope and De Paula.
Here’s what MLB Pipeline said after the Dodgers drafted him with the 136th overall pick. :

Though Campbell rushed for 1,569 yards and 21 touchdowns as a Texas high school senior in the fall of 2019, he had a brighter future in baseball than football. He has improved throughout three seasons at Texas, boosting his OPS from .564 as a freshman to .864 last year to 1.039 this spring while compiling a Big 12 Conference-record 38-game hitting streak. Some scouts consider him the best pure hitting prospect among Lone Star State collegians. Campbell makes good swing decisions and repeated line-drive contact against all kinds of pitching from the right side of the plate. He puts the ball in play almost too easily and could get more out of his hitting ability if he strays out of the strike zone less frequently. He won’t be a big power threat but can drive balls to his pull side enough to produce 15 homers per season. Despite his stocky 5-foot-11, 205-pound build, Campbell possesses solid speed and is a proficient basestealer. His profile would be enhanced if he showed he could handle center field, but he hasn’t gotten that opportunity with the Longhorns. He’s better suited for right field and has the plus arm strength for that position.


Cool, thanks


Make him a penguin and put him at third.


Edgardo Henriquez!

Exciting talent…
Every season I try to figure out who the Dodgers front office should try to acquire as a “win now” option. The target has to be plausible. So it can’t be a superstar on a contender. Willy Adames is often mentioned, and now the Brewers could easily replace him with Joey Ortiz, one of the prospects they got from the O’s for Burnes.
But right now I’m feeling pretty good about the Betts/Lux/Rojas mashup in the infield. Playing in the infield seems to have improved Mookie’s offense. The defense hasn’t sucked. So maybe this strategy is sustainable.
So now I find myself fantasizing about another potential target: the A’s second-year closer Mason Miller.
He’s been lights-out, throwing gas up to 103mph with movement. So far this year, he’s 7 for 7 in save opportunities, with 25 Ks in 12.1 innings and an 0.89 WHIP. In a recent outing against the hot O’s, he was tasked with preserving a one-run lead in the 10th inning. So he started with a runner on 2nd base–and he was facing the heart of the O’s lineup, with early MVP contender Gunnar Henderson up third.
Strike out, ground out, strike out.
Evan Phillips has been very good, but is he a true closer like Kenley? Or would he better suited as a set-up man. As a small-market team with acute instability–with plans to move from Oakland to Sacto and then Vegas–the A’s may want to sell high with Miller.
He’s 25, and this is only his second season in the majors, so there is a lot team control on his contract. He wouldn’t be cheap–but the Dodgers have a lot of prospect capital…


Send them Hoese and a couple of Quakers. And do it soon as 103 mph signals a blow out before the final turn.

The Dodgers don’t need anything but to stand the test of time. Mookie makes offense look too easy, it just ain’t that easy for 180 games and his off target throws to first might make Freddie strain his quadragodzilliac muscles.

The Dodgers have outscored opponents 43-7 recently. Wasn’t that the average score of USC games during the Pete Carroll Reggie Bush years?

Chris Taylor is close. To quote Rodney Dangerfield “to what I have no idea”.

Singing the Blue

I’m in on Miller! We’ve got enough prospect capital to overpay for him and he’s controllable for long enough that we could put up with the inevitable year he’ll miss when he ultimately has his TJ surgery.


I was interested but now I am having second thoughts.


I’m still having issues with first thoughts.


Glasnow was pulled from the game due to cramping. I thought that was an old man’s disease. When I get those suckers, they hurt for hours. Phillips is second in the league in saves with 8. Helsley of the Cardinals has 9.


Did you ever play football in the heat? Cramps were common.


Senior year at Narbonne. Yep, especially after doing wind sprints at the end of practice. Playing softball while I was in the Army in El Paso during the summer wasn’t all that much fun either.


Badger did they feed you those salt tablets for cramping? We took em like aspirin with warm water out of a hose.


Yep, sure did. They were given as a preemptive measure.


Well my suspicions were confirmed yesterday.  Doc is reading my posts on this site.  Why else would he have Chris Taylor sac bunt in the 9 hole to set up Mookie’s rbi knock?  I’ve been lobbying for this for awhile now, especially from Barnes but it works for CT3 too.  And damned if it didn’t happen.
We have had 4 absolutely outstanding starting pitching performances in a row. Knack, Yamamoto, Stone and Glasgow have gone at least 6 innings, In 25 innings they have given up only 11 hits and 4 earned runs. And stretched out to The 94 pitch range. Nice to see
Got a nice appearance from Joseph with his 101 heat seeker. He retired Slider Joe for the day.
Keep up the good work.

4 in a row is great and frankly unexpected for me. Didn’t look for 5 and got what I wasn’t looking for.

CT. Agree. And I was thinking squeeze the at bat he singled. Haven’t seen one of those in a long time.

Watford Dodger

Getaway Sunday going as expected…..


I really dislike bullpen games.


What is the Dodger record in these games?


I looked. It’s better than .500.


Lame effort by the offense today. 0 for 9 RISP, 7 LOB. Pitching was more than adequate.


Give some credit to the opposing pitcher and his defense, which saved him a couple of times. They hit some balls pretty hard.


Toronto pitching and defense was good. But, our offense was still lame.


Maybe, just maybe, because their pitching was good????? Sheesh.


To be a championship team, you have to prevail against good pitching. And the Dodgers failed today. It was lame. Sheesh. SMH


Always gonna lose when the offense doesn’t outscore the other team.

The change in tone in posts on this site after losses is annoying to me. Not sure why it bothers me so.


Irritates me too. Especially when the other team’s pitcher pitches a good game, and then all the fans blame the offense.


The pitching was good. But I don’t think it’s being negative to say the offense wasn’t good. 0 for 9 WRISP is not good. And though there were a few good defensive plays by Toronto, one in particular by Springer, the Dodgers have exhibited a lot of warning track power of late. A couple of those alleged great plays were just long fly balls that didn’t leave the park.

Grove’s ERA is now 6.88. One inning at a time should maybe be his workload.


Let’s give credit where it is due. Gausman pitched a very good game, and he was aided by some outstanding defense. They are 5-1 on the trip so far and have three games to make it an excellent road trip. Braves into Dodger Stadium for 3. Marlins after that.

Phil Jones

Nice job by Toronto. they played a good game and Glausman used his fastball very effectively. They also made some great players. A couple in the outfield didn’t included the cleanest routes but the object is to catch the baseball. They did.
We had our chances but we didn’t get the timely hit of two.
I have always been entertained by Alejandro Kirk. Yogi was 5″8″but not 245. And he can play. He had a day against us.
Neither he nor Davis Schneider, look like prototypical big leaguer but we’re not selling jeans here.
Play better.

Must See
