Dragons late rally falls short in July 31 loss to Lansing Lugnuts, 8-7

GAME RECAP WRITTEN BY Tom Nichols; COURTESY DAYTON DRAGONS MEDIA RELATIONS

 

Dayton, Ohio—The Lansing Lugnuts held off a furious Dayton comeback bid to edge the Dragons 8-7 on Tuesday night.  The game included a second inning rain delay of one hour, 26 minutes and was played before a crowd of 7,786 at Fifth Third Field.

 

Lansing built an 8-2 lead going to the bottom of the eighth inning before the Dragons exploded for a five-run frame.  J.D. Williams and Andy Sugilio each had run-scoring singles in the inning before Hendrik Clementina blasted a three-run home run to make it 8-7.  The homer by Clementina was his 14th of the season.

 

The Dragons got a lead-off single from Alejo Lopez in the bottom of the ninth, but they could not advance him past first base as the next three batters were retired and Lansing held on for the win, allowing them to take three-of-four in the series.

 

Lansing scored four runs in the top of the second inning to take an early 4-0 lead.  The Dragons answered with two runs in the third, as Reds 2018 first round draft pick Jonathan India picked up his first Midwest League RBI with a two-out run-scoring single.

 

The Dragons finished the night with 11 hits.  Lopez led the way with three and went 8 for 16 in the series to raise his batting average to .307.  Clementina’s homer was his only hit, but he went 7 for 15 in the series with two home runs and three doubles.  Andy Sugilio had two hits after going 0 for 12 in the first three games of the series.

 

Dragons starting pitcher Wendolyn Bautista (4-6) took the loss.  He worked five innings and gave up seven runs on nine hits with one walk and four strikeouts.

Dayton, Ohio—The Lansing Lugnuts broke a scoreless tie with six runs in the sixth inning on the way to an 8-3 victory over the Dayton Dragons on Monday night.  A crowd of 8,217 attended the game at Fifth Third Field.

 

The game marked the Dragons debut of Reds 2018 first round draft pick Jonathan India.  He collected one hit in four at-bats, a third inning single, and also added a walk.

 

Dragons starting pitcher Patrick McGuff was outstanding over the first five innings before running into trouble in the sixth.  McGuff allowed a base hit to the first batter of the game, then held Lansing without a hit until the sixth.  McGuff retired the lead-off hitter in the sixth inning before allowing back-to-back walks and a run-scoring single that gave Lansing a 1-0 lead.  Dauri Moreta replaced McGuff and allowed hits to the first three batters he faced as Lansing scored six runs in the inning to take a 6-0 lead.

 

The Dragons scored one run in the seventh on an RBI single by Alejo Lopez, and after Lansing scored one in the eighth, the Dragons scored two in the bottom half of the inning on a triple by Raul Wallace that brought in Hendrik Clementina and Mitch Piatnik to make it 7-3.  Lansing close out the scoring with a run in the top of the ninth.

 

McGuff (1-2) was charged with the loss.  He worked five and one-third innings and was charged with three runs on only two hits with four walks and three strikeouts.  For the second straight start, McGuff left the game in the sixth inning with two men on base but was charged with both runs when the Dragons reliever who replaced him allowed the frame to become a big inning for the opponent.

 

The Dragons finished with 11 hits.  Clementina went 3 for 3 with a long double and a walk.  Garcia and Wallace each had two hits.

India homers but Dragons lose series opener at West Michigan, 4-1

GAME RECAP WRITTEN BY Tom Nichols; COURTESY DAYTON DRAGONS MEDIA RELATIONS

 

August 4, 2018

 

Grand Rapids, Mich.—Three West Michigan pitchers combined to allow just three hits while striking out 12 as the Whitecaps topped the Dayton Dragons 4-1 on Saturday night.  The game was the opener to a three-game series in Grand Rapids.

 

West Michigan took command of the game early, scoring single runs in the first two innings, and then adding two in the third to take a 4-0 lead.

 

The Dragons scored their only run in the sixth inning on a solo home run to left field by Jonathan India.  The homer was the first with the Dragons for India, the Reds first round draft pick earlier this summer.

 

Dragons starting pitcher Patrick McGuff (1-3) endured his first rough start with the team and was charged with the loss.  He worked two and two-thirds innings, allowing four runs on seven hits with two walks and no strikeouts.  He also committed a balk that brought in a run.

 

The Dragons bullpen had a good night, keeping the team within striking distance.  Wendolyn Bautista worked three and one-third scoreless innings, allowing just one base runner.  Aaron Quillen followed Bautista and worked two perfect innings, striking out one.

 

But the Dragons could not mount a productive attack at the plate.  After India’s homer in the sixth, they did advance runners to third base later in the sixth and again in the eighth inning, but they could not get the big hit.

 

The Dragons finished the night with only five hits.  Alejo Lopez was 1 for 4 to extend his hitting streak to eight straight games.
