Oklahoma City completes sweep of Round Rock Express


A solid start by Yohander Mendez went to waste as the Oklahoma City Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the Round Rock Express with a 3-1 win on Thursday night in Oklahoma City.

Mendez allowed three runs on six hits through 5 2/3 innings. Runs remained tough to come by for the Express (1-7), however.

Destin Hood’s sacrifice fly in the fourth inning provided the only run for the Express. Michael O’Neill scored on the play.

Manny Banuelos picked up the win as he gave up just one run on two hits through six innings.

Rob Segedin went 2-for-4 with two runs scored, a home run and two RBIs for the Dodgers.

Segedin drove in a run to start things for Oklahoma City (5-1) in the bottom of the second. His ground-ball single scored Alex Verdugo.

Breyvic Valera also hit an RBI single in the second to make it 2-0 for the Dodgers.

After Hood pulled Round Rock to within a run, Segedin responded with a home run in the bottom of the fourth to cap the scoring.

Brian Schlitter earned his first save of the season by inducing a ground out with two men on base.

The Express dropped the first game of the series by a single run but have been outscored in the last two games by a combined score of 22-2.

Round Rock next faces Colorado Springs on the road for a four-game set. The series begins on Friday at 7:40 p.m.
