OKC lost 12-7.
The big news at OKC was the dominant outing by rehabbing pitcher, Dustin May. It was a huge improvement from his first start as he had much better command. May could be a big part of the Dodgers for the rest of the season.
Dustin May's second rehab outing with OKC was a dominant affair, the fastball got up to 99.9 mph, his curve got whiffs on 4/5 swings, and some of those hacks were pretty ugly. The line:
