Oklahoma City snaps 'Cakes win streak

Baby Cakes drop series finale to end four-game win streak

Edwin Rios drilled a two-run homer to lead the Oklahoma City Dodgers to a 4-2 win over the New Orleans Baby Cakes on Sunday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

The Baby Cakes saw their season-high four-game win streak snapped.

Wilmer Font held the Baby Cakes to one run over six innings as he picked up his seventh victory of the season.

On the heels of his game-winning two-run pinch single in his first Triple-A at-bat the night before, Brian Anderson homered in his first at-bat on Sunday to give the 'Cakes a brief 1-0 lead.

Rios put the Dodgers in front in the bottom of the frame, but those were the only two runs to score against New Orleans starter William Cuevas (1-2), who posted a quality start by allowing five hits in six innings.

Oklahoma City tacked on a pair of insurance runs in the seventh on a fielder's choice when Mike Freeman scored on a bases-loaded grounder by Alex Verdugo, with a second run scoring on Christian Colon's errant throw to the plate.

Peter Mooney delivered a two-out RBI double in the eighth to bring the tying run to the plate, but the Baby Cakes could get no closer as LSU alum Joe Broussard retired the side in order in the ninth for his second save.

The 'Cakes continue their eight-game road trip on Monday in Round Rock with the first of four meetings with the Express. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m.
