Dodgers prospects Choi Hyun-il pitched seven innings

Choi Hyun-il, a member of the Triple-A Oklahoma City Baseball Club under the Los Angeles Dodgers, started the game against Reno Aces (Triple-A under the Arizona Diamondbacks) at Chickasow Bricktown Ball Park on the 23rd (Korea Standard Time) and recorded four hits, three strikeouts and one run in seven innings.

Choi's team won 5-1, its second win this season and its first win in Triple-A. Choi, who has been playing both Double-A and Triple-A this season, has two wins, three losses and a 4.82 ERA in eight games this season. He has a 3.70 ERA in five Triple-A games.

Choi allowed Adrian Del Castillo a double to right field after one out in the first inning, but struck out a follow-up batter and hit a fly ball to left field to overcome the crisis. Other than giving up one hit in the second inning, Choi displayed perfect pitching through the fifth inning.

Choi's first loss came in the top of the sixth inning when the game was tying 0-0. With runners on the second base with one out, Choi gave up a hit to right field to Del Castillo, and lost the point. However, he did not allow additional runs as he induced Kyle Garlick to ground out to shortstop with one out and a runner on the first base.

Oklahoma City's batters turned the game around 2-1 in the bottom of the sixth inning, easing Choi's shoulders. Choi took the mound in the top of the seventh inning as well, and gave up three outs before finishing the game on the day.
