Dayton, Ohio—Lorenzo Cedrola blasted a grand slam home run to highlight a five-run seventh inning as the Dayton Dragons battled back from a five-run deficit to defeat the Fort Wayne TinCaps 8-6 on Friday.  The Dragons took two-of-three in the series from Fort Wayne.  A crowd of 7,912 was in attendance.

 

Fort Wayne built a 5-0 lead over the first four innings before the Dragons started back in the bottom of the fourth with a two-run home run by Mark Kolozvary, his second homer of the year.  Fort Wayne responded with a run in the top of the fifth, but the Dragons got a run-scoring single from Andy Sugilio in the bottom of the fifth to make it 6-3.

In the seventh, Cedrola came to bat with the bases loaded and one out and lifted a high drive down the left field line that hit the netting just to the right of the foul pole to give the Dragons a 7-6 lead.  Jeter Downs, on his 20th birthday, followed with his 11th home run of the season to make it 8-6.  The home run by Cedrola was the first grand slam of the year for the Dragons, and the back-to-back home runs capped off a five-run inning.

 

Dragons reliever Dauri Moreta, who re-joined the team from Billings earlier in the day, entered the game to start the eighth and pitched a perfect inning, striking out two.  Moreta remained in the game for the ninth and retired the first two batters before allowing a single to bring the tying run to the plate.  But Moreta got strikeout on a 3-2 pitch to end the game and notch his first save.

 

Left-handed reliever Andy Cox (1-0) was credited with the win.  He tossed two scoreless innings, allowing one hit and one walk with two strikeouts.  Dragons starting pitcher Packy Naughton had one inning and left after the fifth.  He gave up six runs on 11 hits with no walks and five strikeouts.

The Dayton Dragons announced the following roster changes today:

 

Right-handed pitcher Aaron Quillen has been placed on the disabled list.

 

Right-handed pitcher Dauri Moreta has been promoted to Dayton from Billings (Pioneer League).

Dragons’ Greene becoming another Aroldis Chapman with triple-digit pitch speeds; Dayton wins 2-1 Thursday night

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

 

Dayton, Ohio—Five Dayton pitchers combined to allow just five hits and one run as the Dragons edged the Fort Wayne TinCaps 2-1 on Thursday night.  The win evened the series at one win apiece with the rubber match set for Friday night.  A crowd of 7,542 was in attendance at Fifth Third Field.

 

Dragons starting pitcher Hunter Greene broke the Fifth Third Field record for fastest pitch when he fired a fastball at 102 mph as the last pitch of the first inning, getting a called third strike with the pitch.  Greene, big league all-star Aroldis Chapman, and current Dragons reliever Aneurys Zabala had previously reached 101 mph on the speed gun at Fifth Third Field.  Chapman was on a major league injury rehabilitation assignment with the Dragons when he reached 101 in 2014.

 

Greene fired two scoreless innings, striking out four without allowing a hit, and left the game unexpectedly after the second inning. Dragons manager Luis Bolivar said after the game that Greene’s exit was due to an upset stomach and was not injury-related.

 

The Dragons broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the sixth inning.  Jeter Downs singled, stole second and third with one out, and after a walk to Leandro Santana, Downs scored on Alejo Lopez’s single to right field to give the Dragons a 1-0 lead.

 

The Dragons added another run in the seventh, putting together a two-out rally.  Andy Sugilio reached on an infield single, stole second, and scored on a pair of wild pitches to make it 2-0.

 

Fort Wayne scored one run with two outs in the ninth inning before Dragons closer John Ghyzel notched a strikeout to end the game with the tying run at first base.  Ghyzel picked up his league-leading 18th save.

 

The victory was credited to Wendolyn Bautista (4-5), who tossed four scoreless innings in relief of Greene.  Brian Hunter and Ryan Nutof each pitched a scoreless inning after Bautista left the game.

 

The Dragons finished with eight hits.  Lopez, Lorenzo Cedrola, and Jeter Downs each had two.
