Dodgers Farm Clubs go 0-for-Thursday

It was a dark and stormy night for Dodgers' minor league hitters, with all six teams that played losing while scoring only 10 runs between them. Las Vegas (13-0), Inland Empire (7-0) and the Gulf Coast Dodgers (3-0) were shutout, Jacksonville lost 9-3, Great Lakes 6-5 and the Dominican Dodgers 3-2. Ogden was probably thankful they had the day off.

Former Dodger Hurts Las Vegas
Former Dodgers' minor league catcher Ed Bellorin, smacked a pair of home runs, the first an inside-the-park job, and drove in four runs and Colorado Springs pitching held the 51s to four singles in a 13-0 blowout.

The loss, coming in the second game of a five-game series, snapped the 51s' three-game win streak.

Bellorin hit a two-run shot in the second inning and a solo blast in the third, both off Las Vegas starter Eric Cyr (2-2). Bellorin added a run-scoring single in the fourth.

Colorado Springs battered Cyr, Francisco Felix and Brandon Tuten for 16 hits.

Las Vegas had only two hits after the second inning and none over the final three frames.

The series, the final road series of the season for Las Vegas, continues tonight.

Suns Thumped 9-3
Jacksonville scored three times in the first inning, then went silent as Chattanooga rolled up a 9-5 victory. Jesus Rodriguez started and worked a scoreless first inning before being tagged with 10 hits, seven runs (five earned) and his fifth loss against four wins. Three of the hits he allowed left the park.

Ivan De Jesus singled with one out in the first, Jamie Hoffman added a single and Russell Mitchell launched his 13th homer of the season over the left field wall for a brief, 3-0 lead.

The Suns managed only two hits after the home run, with Shane Justis singling in the third (#4) and Juan Gonzalez added the fifth hit in the fourth. The final 18 Jacksonville batters went out in order after Gonzalez's hit.

Anthony Tomey served up the fourth Chattanooga home run before Scott Elbert worked a scoreless ninth inning.

Five different Suns shared their five hits.

Inland Empire Blanked by Storm
A four-game winning streak dissolved in a 7-0 beating administered by Lake Elsinore, who celebrated their first shutout of the season.

Starter Steve Johnson was thumped for nine of the 12 Lake Elsinore hits and all seven runs in before being KO'ed with one out in the fifth inning.

Luis Vasquez and Chris Withrow allowed only three hits over the final 4.2 innings but the game was in the bag by then.

With the loss, the 66ers (62-68) fall to one game behind the Storm (63-67) for the final wild-card spot in the California League's South Division.

Bridger Hunt, Jaime Pedroza and Austin Gallagher each had a pair of hits and Drew Locke added a double.

The 66ers will close out the series against Lake Elsinore tonight. They will then host Rancho Cucamonga in the final three home games before going on the road to finish the season.

Loons Errors Help Silver Hawks
  Great Lakes, playing before their 15th sellout of the season, saw a 4-3 lead disappear like summer wages as the team dropped a 6-5 decision to South bend. The Loons are now 15-27 in one-run games.

The Loons made good use of their seven hits, but starter Juan Cedeño (0-3) and Miguel Sanfler were unable to stem the SilverHawks offense and an error allowed he final, and ultimately the deciding run in the eighth inning.

Trailing 3-0 in the third inning, the Loons countered with Erik Kanaby's RBI single to make it 3-1 before Jovanny Rosario lined a clutch, opposite-field, go-ahead, three-run double to clear the bases and give the Loons a 4-3 lead in the fifth.

South Bend picked up a pair of runs when the Loons infield had trouble turning a double plays. First baseman Jaime Ortiz had two chances and shortstop Brandon Taylor botched another to allow South Bend to escape.

Rosario scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the eighth to cut the lead to 6-5. After that, the final five Loons went out in order. 

Kanaby was the only Loon who could manage more than one hit. Rosario and Kanaby collected the only Inland Empire runs batted in.

The two clubs continue their four-game series tonight from Dow Diamond.

GCL Dodgers Lose Rain-Shortened Game
In the completion of a earlier rainout and between the almost constant raindrops, the Gulf Coast Dodgers and Nationals both dropped games, keeping the pair on top the East Division of the league.

The Coasties were held to five hits and the game only went 5 1/2 innings as the Marlins stopped them 3-0.

Matt Magill (1-1), the Dodgers 31st pick in 2008, drew the start and worked into the fifth inning, allowing only five hits and striking out four. Roberto Feliciano closed out the fifth but after the Dodgers went down in order in the top of the sixth, the rains came again and the umpires called the game.

Garrett Green doubled twice to lead the Dodgers offense. Albie Golder, Pedro Guerrero and Jake New had the other three hits.

Cubs Edge DSL Dodgers 3-2
The Cubs scored twice in the first inning off starter Ernesto Antuan (1-1) and the Dodgers were never able to catch up, losing a tight, 3-2 decision.

Dodger pitchers allowed only two hits. Antuan surrendered one of the hits and a pair of errors helped the Cubs score two runs, one earned, in the third inning. He pitched four innings.

Amauri Guzman was perfect in the fifth and sixth, allowing no hits and striking out four before Carlos De Aza was tagged for the deciding run in the eighth without allowing a hit, on a walk, a passed ball, and a wild pitch.

The Dodgers cut the Cubs lead to 2-1 in the seventh on Wilner Charles' sac fly and in the ninth, now trailing 3-1, Rafael Aybar walked with one out and moved to second on a wild pitch. With two out Charles dropped a single into center field.

With runners on first and third, Charles stole second and when the throw went into center field, Aybar scored on the error. Alexis Crispin was hit by a pitch. With the tying and winning runs on base, a force out at second ended the Dodgers' threat and the game.
