Dodgers Fall To Fresno On Duffy's Home Run

Posted: Updated:

A two-run homer by Matt Duffy provided all of the Fresno Grizzlies' offense in a 2-1 win against the Oklahoma City Dodgers Saturday in front of a crowd of 10,099 at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

The win evened up the series between the teams, 1-1, as the Dodgers (33-15) lost for just the second time in nine games.

Fresno starting pitcher Dan Straily (4-3) racked up a season-high 10 strikeouts in the win. He combined with former Oklahoma City RedHawks relievers Jason Stoffel and Kevin Chapman to hold the Dodgers to one run.

The Dodgers' offense tied a season high with 13 strikeouts in the loss, and tied a season low with four hits.

Oklahoma City took the first lead of the night.

Darnell Sweeny led off the bottom of the first inning with a triple for the Dodgers to left center field. He then scored on a two-out single by Andy Wilkins for a 1-0 Dodgers lead. Wilkins went 2-for-3 to lead the Dodgers as he extended his hitting streak to five games.

Former RedHawk Joe Sclafani led off the third inning by drawing a walk for the Grizzlies, then scored when Duffy – another former RedHawk – hit a two-run homer to left center field.

Fresno is the current Triple-A affiliate of the Houston Astros and brought many familiar faces back to Oklahoma City, which served as the Astros' Triple-A affiliate the past four seasons. Sixteen of the active players on the Grizzlies' roster, as well as manager Tony DeFrancesco, hitting coach Leon Roberts and developmental specialist Jeff Murphy, spent time with Oklahoma City in 2014.

Pitcher Chapman earned his fourth save of the season for Fresno.

Dodgers starting pitcher Deck McGuire (1-1) was pegged with the loss. He allowed two runs on four hits, issued four walks and struck out five over 7.0 innings.

The Dodgers continue their series against the Grizzlies at 2:05 p.m. Sunday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. Each Chaparral Energy Family Sunday is filled with family fun activities everyone can enjoy, including pregame autographs and kids can run the bases after the game.
