Darnell Sweeney‘s two-run single highlighted a 4-0 win for a team of Dodgers prospects Sunday over Yaquis de Obregon, a Mexican Pacific League squad, at the “Vamos a Tucson Mexican Baseball Fiesta” in Tucson.
The Dodgers scored all four runs in the eighth inning. After Sweeney’s single, RBI singles by Adam Law and Cody Bellinger drove in the Dodgers’ final runs.

Tom Windle, the Dodgers’ second-round pick in June, allowed no hits over the next 1 ⅓ innings.
