Hot Rods score early, often to put away Dragons in Sunday action, 8-4




June 10, 2018

Dayton, Ohio—The Bowling Green Hot Rods jumped out to a 6-0 lead over the first innings and held on to defeat the Dayton Dragons 8-4 on Sunday afternoon at Fifth Third Field before a crowd of 7,706.  The Hot Rods handed the Dragons their sixth straight loss and will try for a sweep of the four-game series on Monday night.


The start of the game was delayed by two hours, three minutes.  When it began, Bowling Green’s Vidal Brujan hit the second pitch for a triple off the right field wall.  He scored later in the inning on Zach Rutherford’s sacrifice fly to make it 1-0.  The Hot Rods added five more runs in the second, keyed by a three-run home run by Carl Chester, to take a 6-0 lead.


The Dragons battled back and eventually got back to within three runs, but they could not get any closer.  The Dragons scored in the third on an RBI single by Jeter Downs, and then added another run in the fourth when Stuart Fairchild tripled and scored on John Sansone’s single to make it 6-2.


Bowling Green added one run in the top of the fifth, but the Dragons responded with two in the bottom of the same inning.  The first run scored on Montrell Marshall’s RBI single, and Sansone was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to make it 7-4.  But the Dragons did not have another base runner until the bottom of the ninth and did not score again.  Bowling Green added a run in the seventh to close out the scoring.


Dragons starting pitcher Andrew Jordan (1-2) was charged with the loss.  He worked four and one-third innings, allowing seven runs on 10 hits with three walks and three strikeouts.  Reliever Wendolyn Bautista worked three and two-thirds, allowing one run on one hit with four strikeouts, and Dauri Moreta pitched a scoreless ninth inning.


The Dragons finished with nine hits.  Downs, Fairchild, and Mitch Piatnik each had two.  Fairchild’s triple was the only extra base hit.


The loss dropped the Dragons to 29-32 in the first half with seven games to play.  Bowling Green improved to 40-21.  The Dragons have a combined record of 4-18 against Bowling Green and Lansing, the top two teams in the East Division.  They are 25-14 against the rest of the league.

Reds’ prospect Hunter Greene reaches 100-plus mph pitching speeds in 1-0 Dragons loss to Hot Rods in Saturday’s action




June 9, 2018

Dayton, Ohio—Bowling Green pitchers Tommy Romero and Tyler Zombro combined on a three-hit shutout as the Hot Rods edged the Dayton Dragons 1-0 on Saturday night.  A crowd of 7,883 was in attendance at Fifth Third Field.


Dragons starting pitcher Hunter Greene reached 101 mph on approximately 10 pitches in the game, an achievement never before reached in Dragons history in that frequency.  Greene’s 101 mph fastballs matched the Fifth Third Field record for hardest pitch in a game set originally by Aroldis Chapman on a Major League rehab assignment in 2014.  Greene had also reached 101 on three previous pitches in 2018.

Greene worked five innings, allowing four hits and the only run of the game with two walks and six strikeouts.  Greene allowed one run or less for the fifth time in his last six starts.  He was charged with the loss and fell to 1-4.


The game’s only run came in the second inning.  Bowling Green’s Devin Davis bounced a single to center field to start the inning. Greene struck out the next batter before Chris Betts lined a 100 mph fastball into the right field corner for a double, moving Davis to third.  Davis scored when the next batter, Emilio Gustave, grounded out to shortstop.


The Dragons only three hits were a single by Andy Sugilio in the first inning, a double by Jeter Downs in the fourth, and a single by John Sansone with one out in the ninth.  Downs’ double came with no one out in the fourth and gave the Dragons their best chance to score.  He advanced to third on Andy Sugilio’s fly out to center.  With one out, Sansone hit a hard grounder to third.  Downs tried to score and was tagged out at the plate.  The next two batters, Stuart Fairchild and Hendrik Clementina, both walked, but the inning ended when Miles Gordon’s soft looper to shallow right was caught with a leaping grab by Bowling Green second baseman Vidal Brujan as the Dragons left the bases loaded.


Dragons relievers Cory Thompson and John Ghyzel, both headed to the Midwest League All-Star Game, combined to work the final four innings without allowing a run.  Thompson tossed three scoreless innings in relief of Greene.


The Dragons fell to 29-31 in the first half.  They have lost five straight games.  Bowling Green improved to 39-21.

2018 Individual Notes

  • Hendrik Clementina is hitting .338 on the year with a .640 slugging percentage. He is tied for fourth in the MWL in home runs with nine and tied for ninth in RBI with 34 despite not having enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting lead (he is three short of the minimum). With his current averages, he would lead the league in slugging percentage and OPS, and rank third in batting average if he qualified. Clementina was named the Cincinnati Reds Minor League Hitter of the Month for May after batting .329 with seven home runs and 20 RBI in the month.
  • John Ghyzel ranks first in the MWL lead in saves with 11.
