Game Summary: A seven-run seventh inning by the Reno Aces sent the Oklahoma City Dodgers to a 10-3 loss Sunday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. The Dodgers led, 3-2, heading into the seventh inning before the Aces took the lead for good, sending 12 batters to the plate and collecting five hits in the inning. Reno (40-24) took a 1-0 lead in the first inning before the Dodgers went in front, 2-1, in the bottom of the inning on a sacrifice fly and RBI triple by DJ Peters. Matt Davidson’s 13th homer of the season — a solo shot out to right-center field — gave Oklahoma City a 3-1 lead in the fifth inning. The Aces then scored nine straight runs over the sixth, seventh and ninth innings to take a 10-3 lead. The Dodgers fell to 34-30 overall on the season.

Of Note:

-DJ Peters went 4-for-4 with two singles, a double, triple and a RBI as he extended his hitting streak to 10 games. He also made a stellar grab at the wall in foul territory on a fly ball hit to right field for the first out of the fifth inning. Sunday was his second four-hit game of the season — and his second four-hit game in nine days — as he tied his career-high with four hits. He went 4-for-5 July 9 in El Paso with a homer, three RBI and two runs scored. Over the 10-game streak, Peters is 16-for-42 (.381) with four doubles, two homers, seven RBI and four runs scored. He is in the midst of his longest hitting streak since also hitting safely in 10 consecutive games Aug. 12-22, 2017 with High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

-The Triple-A West-leading Aces tied up the series with the Dodgers, 2-2, sending OKC to just its second loss in the last six games and third loss in the last nine games.

-Matt Davidson hit his ninth homer in the last 14 games and 11th homer in his last 20 games Sunday. He finished the game 1-for-2 with a walk and two RBI and has 13 extra-base hits and 22 RBI over the last 14 games.

-The seven runs scored by the Aces in the seventh inning Sunday set a season-high for runs allowed in an inning by the Dodgers this season. The former season high was six runs allowed in an inning, which had happened six times this season, including most recently in the fifth inning July 11 at El Paso.

-Dodgers starting pitcher Mitch White tossed 5.0 innings, allowing one run on three hits with three walks and a season-high nine strikeouts. His nine K’s were the most he’s recorded in one game since he had nine strikeouts June 1, 2019 with the Oklahoma City Dodgers at Memphis and one shy of the Dodgers’ season-high mark set by Josiah Gray with 10 strikeouts May 6 at Round Rock.

-OKC catcher Juan Zabala lined a single into center field during his first Triple-A at-bat in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday after entering the game as part of a double switch in the eighth inning. Infielder Kenneth Betancourt also made his Triple-A debut Sunday with OKC and grounded out in his lone at-bat as a pinch hitter in the sixth inning.
