Oklahoma City - The New Orleans Baby Cakes held the Oklahoma City Dodgers to one run and three hits as they evened the series between the teams by sending the Dodgers to a 3-1 loss Wednesday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

Oklahoma City's lone run of the night came via Jake Peter's solo homer in the second inning as New Orleans' pitchers retired the final 14 Dodgers batters of the night.

Wednesday marked the seventh time this season the Dodgers were held to three or fewer hits in a game and the 14th time this season they scored one run or less.

New Orleans tied the game, 1-1, in the fourth inning when Lewis Brinson hit a home run out to right-center field with two outs.

Yangervis Solarte gave the Baby Cakes a 2-1 advantage in the sixth inning with a home run out to right field that landed in the New Orleans' bullpen.

The Baby Cakes (31-46) added a run in the ninth inning. Heineman reached on a fielding error by Dodgers pitcher Stetson Allie, advanced to second base on a wild pitch, stole third base, then scored on a RBI single by the middle by Rosell Herrera for a 3-1 Baby Cakes lead.

New Orleans starting pitcher Joe Gunkel (1-1) picked up the win, holding OKC to one run and three hits over 5.0 innings. He did not issue a walk and had five strikeouts.

Pitchers Jeff Brigham and R.J. Alvarez held the Dodgers without a hit or run between the sixth and eighth innings. Kyle Keller then pitched a perfect ninth inning for his sixth save with New Orleans.

Dodgers starting pitcher Logan Bawcom (0-1) was charged with the loss. He held the Baby Cakes to two runs and seven hits with one walk and seven strikeouts as he made his first appearance with the team since early May.
