Frisco's Edinson Volquez fanned 10 in just five innings on Monday while Freddy Guzman and Tug Hulett each went deep for Triple-A Oklahoma. Lone Star Dugout takes a look at all of the day's minor league action.

AAA: Oklahoma 8 – (@) New Orleans 4 (Suspended – Top 9)


Oklahoma’s Monday afternoon contest was suspended due to rain in the top of the ninth inning with the RedHawks leading 8-4.

Leadoff hitter Freddy Guzman was 3-for-5 with a home run and three stolen bases, giving him 19 steals on the year.

Second baseman Tim Hulett also went deep for his only hit of the game. It was his fourth round-tripper of the season.

Left fielder Jason Botts (2/5, 2B), right fielder Nelson Cruz (2/3, 2 2B, 2 BB), and third baseman Desi Relaford (2/5, 2B) each had multiple hits.

Mark Redman struggled with his control, walking five batters in just 4 2/3 innings. The Oklahoma product allowed three runs on six hits.

The game will be resumed in late-August.
