Osvaldo Hernandez shut down Dragons offense

Fort Wayne, Ind.—Fort Wayne starting pitcher Osvaldo Hernandez did not allow a hit until the seventh inning as the TinCaps defeated the Dayton Dragons 5-2 on Friday night.  Fort Wayne’s victory allowed them to win the series, two-games-to-one.


Fort Wayne built a 3-0 lead before Dayton’s Alejo Lopez looped a single to right field to start the Dragons half of the seventh inning. Lopez went to third base when Jonathan India followed with a double to the left field fence, and Andy Sugilio’s infield ground out brought in Lopez to make it 3-1.  With two outs, Leandro Santana doubled off the right field fence to score India and make it 3-2.


But Fort Wayne immediately answered with two runs in the bottom of the seventh to rebuild their lead to three runs at 5-2.  The Dragons picked up only one more hit, a ninth inning bunt single by Lopez.


Dragons starting pitcher Mac Sceroler pitched well over his first five innings, allowing only a solo home run to Gabriel Arias in the fourth.  Sceroler gave up a two-out, two-run single in the sixth that allowed Fort Wayne to extend their lead to 3-0.  Sceroler finished with five and two-thirds innings, allowing three runs on six hits with two walks and three strikeouts.


Reliever Cory Thompson replaced Sceroler with two outs in the sixth and finished the inning.  But Thompson was charged with two runs in the seventh as he threw wild pitches in the inning and gave up three hits.  Brian Hunter worked the final inning and two-thirds.


The Dragons finished with only four hits in the game after collecting 64 over the previous five games.  Alejo Lopez was 2 for 4 to lead the way, extending his hitting streak to seven straight games.

Dayton reliever Dauri Moreta pitched a perfect bottom of the eighth inning and went back to the mound for the ninth.  He allowed an infield single to start the inning and then issued a four-pitch walk to put runners at first and second with no outs.  Fort Wayne’s Kelvin Melean then bunted to the side of the mound.  Moreta fielded the bunt, but threw wildly to first base as the lead runner scored to tie the game, leaving runners at second and third with no one out.  Moreta got the first out on an infield pop up, but with the outfield drawn in, Fort Wayne’s Hunter Jarmon connected on a fly ball over the head of the Dragons center fielder, Cedrola, to bring in the winning run and end the game.


Dragons starting pitcher Austin Orewiler worked seven innings, allowing a two-run home run to the second batter in the first inning, and then settled in over the rest of his performance.  He allowed three runs on the night on five hits with three walks and five strikeouts, leaving the game with a 4-3 lead.  Moreta (1-1) was charged with the loss.
