Farm Fresh: August 24 minors highlights
By Miranda Perez
Highlights from the Dodger farm system from Wednesday, not including Cody Bellinger absolutely getting robbed of a home run (in the video above) …
- Single-A Great Lakes lefty Caleb Ferguson had a masterful performance despite the Loons’ disappointing 2-1 loss to the Fort Wayne TinCaps, providing five no-hit innings on just 59 pitches. Ferguson has performed much better at home this season (2.14 ERA) than on the road (4.14 ERA). Luis De Paula came on in relief and took the combined no-hit bid into the seventh before Fort Wayne knocked in the tying run.
- Single-A Rancho Cucamonga made a late comeback to beat Lake Elsinore, 4-2, thanks to clutch hitting by Will Smith, Mike Ahmed and Brandon Trinkwon. Smith tied the game in the sixth with an RBI single, and Ahmed hit a pair of doubles to go 2 for 3 with a walk and a run scored. Trinkwon knocked in three runs, going 3 for 4 with a stolen base. Adam Bray, who has yet to lose a game in the minors this season, started the game and tossed six quality innings, allowing two unearned runs while striking out seven, but Rob Rogers came away with the win after tossing two scoreless innings of relief.
- A solo homer by Jack Murphy (2 for 4) provided the only run for Triple-A Oklahoma City, which struck out 15 times in its 5-1 loss to the Colorado Springs Sky Sox.
- Rookie League Ogden walked off in the 10th on Errol Robinson’s RBI single for an 11-10 victory over Grand Junction. DJ Peters and Brandon Montgomery each homered and went 2 for 5.
