Today’s Game: The Oklahoma City Dodgers and Tacoma Rainiers wrap up their current and season series at 2:05 p.m. at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark…After an OKC loss Saturday and wins by El Paso and Round Rock, the Dodgers fell out of first place in the PCL East Division. El Paso now leads the division by one game ahead of OKC and Round Rock with 16 games to play. The Dodgers have only four home games remaining in 2022.

Last Game: Michael Busch collected a game-high three hits, but the Oklahoma City Dodgers were held to three runs for the fourth time in the last five games in a 4-3 loss to the Tacoma Rainiers Saturday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. Tacoma grabbed a quick lead when Kyle Lewis hit a solo home run out to right-center field in the first inning. The Dodgers answered in the bottom of the inning with a RBI single by Edwin Ríos to tie the score, 1-1. The Rainiers added two runs in the fifth inning via a RBI groundout and RBI single by Forrest Wall for a 3-1 advantage. Wall added another RBI single in the seventh inning for a 4-1 Tacoma lead. Busch’s RBI single in the bottom of the seventh inning trimmed the deficit to two runs. In the eighth inning, James Outman connected on a one-out double before scoring on a RBI single by Jason Martin to cut Tacoma’s lead to 4-3. Rainiers pitchers then retired the final five Dodgers batters of the game as Tacoma took a 4-1 lead in the six-game series.

Today’s Probable Pitcher: Robbie Erlin (5-3) is scheduled to make his 12th start of the season and first appearance in nearly one month…Although he’s remained on the active roster, Erlin last pitched Aug. 13 against Round Rock in Oklahoma City, allowing three runs and five hits over 5.0 innings with three walks and two strikeouts. He did not factor into the decision of OKC’s 9-5 win…Erlin has split time as a starter and bulk reliever this season while with OKC. In his 11 starts, Erlin is 1-3 with a 6.46 ERA and the Dodgers as a team have gone 6-5. He’s tended to perform better at home than on the road, with a 4.78 ERA…
