Miguel Aguilar pitched well in relief to get win in wild game

Nutof retired all three batters he faced in the bottom of the 10th.  Dragons shortstop Jose Garcia made a great diving catch of a line drive to his left to end the game.


Dragons reliever Miguel Aguilar pitched out of a tough jam in the bottom of the ninth with the score tied 5-5 to send the game to extra innings.  Fort Wayne had a runner at third base with one out when Kelvin Melean hit a tapper to the side of the mound.  Aguilar fielded the ball and make an accurate throw home to get the lead runner on a tag play at the plate for the second out, and then got a fly out to right field to end the threat.

Fort Wayne battled back, scoring one run in the second and four more in the fifth to take a 5-2 lead.  But the Dragons responded with a three-run sixth inning to tie the score.  Mitch Piatnik delivered a run-scoring single, and Alejo Lopez added a two-run double to even the game at 5-5.
