During Thursday night’s exciting Cal League game between the Dodgers Advanced Single-A affiliate Rancho Cucamonga Quakes and the High Desert Mavericks (Mariners), something occurred that falls under the category of “Just when you think you’ve seen everything.” Trailing 10-5 with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and a runner on second base, rehabbing […]

AGon returning to form at just the right time

To say that Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez had a down year through the first half of the 2014 season is being kind. And even though most major leaguers would gladly take his first-half triple-slash numbers of .250/.312/.429, these numbers are well below AGon’s career triple-slash of .291/.364/.497. Be even as the rest of the Dodgers […]

After their remarkable record-setting nine-game winning streak, the Dodgers Advanced Single-A affiliate Rancho Cucamonga Quakes went on an excruciatingly painful 10-game losing streak which, mercifully, came to an end on Monday night with a dominating 10-4 win over the Bakersfield Blaze (Reds) at historic Sam Lynn Field in Bakersfield.
