Dodgers Win On Barney's 15th Inning Walk-Off Home Run

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Darwin Barney drilled a three-run home run to left field in the bottom of the 15th inning to give the Oklahoma City Dodgers an 8-5 win against the Reno Aces Wednesday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

The Dodgers (75-49) trailed, 5-2, entering the bottom of the ninth inning and scored three runs to tie the game and force extra innings in front of a crowd of 3,828.

Wednesday marked the first time a game extended into the 15th inning for Oklahoma City since a 10-8 loss to New Orleans April 25, 2013 in Bricktown.

Barney finished the night 2-for-7 with a game-high three RBI and two runs scored. Austin Barnes led all players with five hits, going 5-for-8 with a RBI and a run scored. Three of Barnes’ hits came in extra innings.

Reno (60-64) took the first lead of the night.

Michael Freeman and Danny Dorn drew back-to-back walks to lead off the game. Both then scored on a two-run double by Peter O’Brien in the first inning for a 2-0 Reno lead.

The Dodgers quickly tied the game in the bottom of the opening frame. Scott Schebler led off with a double and Corey Seager hit a one-out single. A RBI groundout by Andy Wilkins brought home Schebler to cut the Aces’ lead in half. Barnes followed with a RBI single to tie the game, 2-2.

A sacrifice fly by former RedHawk catcher Gerald Laird, who is with the Aces on rehab assignment, gave Reno a 3-2 lead in the fourth inning. Pitcher Jhoulys Chacin hit a one-out RBI double for a 4-2 Reno lead and the Aces added another run when Dorn hit into a fielder’s choice to put Reno ahead, 5-2.

Schebler hit a two-run single to right field with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to cut Reno’s lead to 5-4. He advanced to second base on a wild pitch with pinch hitter Shawn Zarraga at the plate. With the count full, Zarraga then hit a RBI single to bring home Schebler and tie the game, 5-5.

The Dodgers loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth, but Barnes grounded out to send the game to extra innings.

In the 10th inning, Reno pitcher Kaleb Fleck intentionally walked Elliot Johnson and Schebler to load the bases for pitcher Joe Wieland who entered the game to pinch hit for Oklahoma City. Wieland struck out looking to send the game to the 11th inning.

In the bottom of the 15th, Barnes and Jensen hit back-to-back two-out singles, putting runners at first and third base for Barney. Barney then hit his fourth home run of the season and gave the Dodgers their 10th walk-off win.

The Dodgers used eight different pitchers in the game, as Oklahoma City held Reno without a run over the final 11 innings. Reliever Ramon Troncoso (5-1) pitched a scoreless and hitless top of the 15th inning to earn the win.

Reno starting pitcher Chacin tossed 8.1 innings, but finished with a no decision. Matt Reynolds (3-6) was charged with the loss. He allowed three runs and four hits over 1.2 innings.

The Dodgers improved to 6-4 in extra-inning games this season.

The Dodgers continue their series against the Reno Aces at 7:05 p.m. Thursday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. Tomorrow is a $2 Thursday and fans can enjoy soft drinks, bottled water and select 16-ounce beers for just $2.
