Woo Hoo! The kids are good!
The Dodgers Single-A farmclub Rancho Cucamonga Quakes swept the San Jose Giants in convincing fashion. They recorded five runs on seven hits to win their first championship since 1994.
Leading the way was 2013 4th round draft pick Cody Bellinger. He batted 3-5 with two doubles and a two-run home run, and was named the series MVP. Also, 2014 2nd round draft pick Alex Verdugo went 3-4 with a double and two RBI's. Verdugo was promoted to the Quakes just last month.
On the mound was 2014 7th round pick Trevor Oaks. He pitched 7.1 shut out innings for the win; scattering eight hits and recording four strike outs.
