Oklahoma City Dodgers overwhelm Round Rock Express


The Oklahoma City Dodgers had 19 hits in a 19-1 victory over the Round Rock Express in Oklahoma on Wednesday night.

The Dodgers scored nine runs in the third inning and then seven more in the fifth to grab a strong foothold in the contest.

Donovan Solano went 3-for-4 with a run scored and three RBIs. Rocky Gale also drove in three runs while going 1-for-4 with two runs scored and a home run.

Round Rock managed just five hits against the Dodgers pitching staff. Buehler earned the win, allowing just one run on four hits through five innings. He struck out six and walked just one batter.
