Seager rips two homers for Oklahoma City

Dodgers' top prospect has third multi-homer game this season, but his error proves costly

Corey Seager continues to rake for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The Dodgers' No. 1 prospect (No. 5 overall) ripped two homers in Wednesday's 7-6 loss to Colorado Springs, including a line-drive shot to right-center on the first pitch he saw. In the fifth, he launched another dinger -- this one a two-run blast -- to right-center.

However, Seager's third multi-homer game this year ended on a sour note as he made a poor throw with two outs in the top of the ninth inning that allowed the game to continue. Brewers No. 21 prospect Yadiel Rivera promptly smacked a three-run home run to give Colorado Springs a 7-6 victory.

Seager has now made two errors in the past week and seven total since getting promoted to Oklahoma City on May 1. However, he has been fantastic at the dish. He's hitting .286/.342/.465 with six homers and 24 RBIs since the promotion.
