Ft. Wayne blasts Dayton with 9-run 6th inning en route to 12-0 win Wednesday night

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

 

Dayton, Ohio—The Fort Wayne TinCaps scored nine runs in the sixth inning to break open a 1-0 game as they defeated the Dayton Dragons 12-0 on Wednesday night.  The game was the start to a three-game series at Fifth Third Field before a crowd of 7,484.

 

Dayton starting pitcher Patrick McGuff and Fort Wayne’s Luis Patino engaged in a pitcher’s duel over the early innings.  Neither team had a hit until Fort Wayne produced a two-out single in the top of the fourth.  The two pitchers combined for nine strikeouts over the first four innings as the game remained scoreless.

 

But Fort Wayne pushed across an unearned run against McGuff in the fifth inning to take a 1-0 lead.  In the sixth, the TinCaps got a lead-off double followed by back-to-back bunt hits, the second of which brought in a run to make it 2-0.  McGuff was then replaced by Miguel Aguilar with two men on base and no one out, and Aguilar had a rough outing.  Aguilar recorded two outs but gave up six hits, two walks, and saw eight runs cross the plate after he entered the game.  Two of the eight were charged to McGuff, and six to Aguilar, before Cory Thompson came in to record the final out of the inning with the Dragons trailing 10-0.  Fort Wayne added two more runs in the ninth, getting a home run by Kelvin Melean, his second of the game.

 

McGuff (1-1) was charged with the loss.  His final line showed five innings of work with four runs allowed (three earned) on five hits with no walks and six strikeouts.

 

The Dragons finished the night with only two hits.  Alejo Lopez had two hits and a walk.

Beloit, Wisc.—Dayton pitchers Austin Orewiler and Wendolyn Bautista combined on an 11-hit shutout as the Dragons defeated the Beloit Snappers 3-0 on Monday afternoon.  The win gave the Dragons a split of their six-game Wisconsin road trip as they finished with a 3-3 record.  They won two-of-three in Beloit, who had won 13 of their last 15 games entering the series.

 

Orewiler (4-3), the Dragons starting pitcher, worked out of trouble in each of his six innings, getting three big double play balls to help him out of jams.  He allowed no runs on seven hits with two walks and three strikeouts.

Wendolyn Bautista replaced Orewiler in the seventh and was in immediate trouble, allowing three straight hits with one out to load the bases.  But Bautista notched back-to-back strikeouts to end the threat.  Bautista then pitched a perfect eighth inning, the only inning on the day in which Beloit did not have base runners.  Bautista allowed a lead-off single in the ninth but got the fourth double play ball of the day and finished the inning for his first save.

 

The Dragons scored single runs in the second and third to take an early 2-0 lead.  In the second, Mark Kolozsvary doubled to the fence in right-center field with two outs and scored on a single to right by Leandro Santana.  In the third, Jose Garcia reached on an error with one out, went to second on an infield single by Andy Sugilio, and scored on a base hit by Jeter Downs to make it 2-0.

 

Garcia blasted a solo home run to left field in the eighth, his second homer of the year, to close out the scoring.

 

The win lifted the Dragons record to 15-16 in the second half.  They are tied with Lake County for the wildcard position in the Midwest League East Division Second Half playoff chase.  Beloit fell to 19-10 in the second half.
