After neither team scored for the next four innings, the Bandits added to their lead in the sixth.  Angarita opened the inning with a triple that landed on the warning track in right field.  Castro drove him in by lifting a sacrifice fly into center field and the lead was 5-0.


In the top of the eighth, Shaver and Chandler Taylor opened the frame with back-to-back singles.  Miguelangel Sierra took advantage by lining an RBI single into left field to score Shaver and widen the gap to 6-0.

Dominating pitching performance by Mac Sceroler aids Dragons in 8-2 Sunday win over Lugnuts




July 29, 2018


Dayton, Ohio—Dayton starting pitcher Mac Sceroler (suh-ROLL-er) allowed just two hits over six scoreless innings as the Dragons defeated the Lansing Lugnuts 8-2 on Sunday afternoon.  A crowd of 7,725 was in attendance at Fifth Third Field.


Sceroler, who began the season with the Dragons but made only four starts in April, returned with a dominant performance.  He did not allow a hit until the fifth inning and struck out six while walking two.  Sceroler retired 13 straight Lansing batters over one stretch and earned the win to improve to 2-2 with the Dragons.  Sceroler also made seven starts at Billings, going 2-2 with the Mustangs.

Mac Sceroler handcuffed Lansing allowing 2 hits


The Dragons collected 16 hits in the game, including three hits apiece for Jose Garcia, Alejo Lopez, J.D. Williams, and Raul Wallace. Lorenzo Cedrola added two more.


The Dragons took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Williams tripled and scored on Wallace’s infield single.  Cedrola added a two-run single in the third to make it 3-0, and Lopez was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the fourth to force in a run and give the Dragons a 4-0 lead.  In the sixth, Lopez lined an RBI double to left-center to bring in one run, and two batters later, Hendrik Clementina doubled to drive in Lopez and make it 6-0.


Sceroler was replaced by Ryan Nutof to start the seventh inning, and Nutof struggled to throw strikes.  He gave up a hit and walked three including one that forced in the first Lansing run of the day.  Nutof was replaced by Miguel Aguilar with the bases loaded and two outs, and Aguilar walked the first batter he faced to force in the second run of the inning before Ryan Noda lined out hard to second base to end the inning.


The Dragons responded with a two-run single from Garcia in the bottom of the seventh to make it 8-2 and close out the scoring. Aguilar was credited with a save, working the final two and one-third innings and allowing one hit but no runs.

Lansing rallies late to defeat Dayton, 5-4 in Saturday’s action



July 28, 2018


Dayton, Ohio—The Lansing Lugnuts scored the tie-breaking run on an unusual play in the top of the eighth inning and held on to defeat the Dayton Dragons 5-4 on Saturday night.  The game was played at Fifth Third Field before a crowd of 7,881.


The Lugnuts scored four runs in the top of the second inning to take an early 4-0 lead.  The Dragons battled back with single runs in four different innings to tie the game 4-4 in the sixth, getting solo home runs from Hendrik Clementina in the second and Raul Wallace in the fifth.


In the top of the eighth, Lansing’s Ryan Noda reached on a single to right field with one out to start their rally.  Brandon Grudzielanek followed with an excellent bunt to the left side.  Dragons third baseman Leandro Santana fielded the bunt, but his throw to first was late and sailed over the head of Reshard Munroe, skipping off the back of the Lansing bullpen catcher.  Munroe retrieved the ball as Noda rounded third and tried to score.  Munroe threw home and Noda was tagged out by Dragons catcher Mark Kolozvary as Grudzielanek tried to advance all the way to third base on the play.  Kolozsvary fired to third, but the throw glanced off the glove of shortstop Jeter Downs, bounced into foul territory, and Grudzielanek came in to score.  Santana was charged with a throwing error on the play and Downs was given an error on the missed catch at third.


The Dragons could not advance a runner past first base over the final two innings as they fell to the Lugnuts in the first game of the four-game series.


Clementina had a good night at the plate for the Dragons, going 2 for 3 with his 13th home run of the year, a double, walk, and two runs scored.  Wallace also had two hits including a 414 foot home run off the batter’s eye in center field that was clocked off the bat at 110 mph.


Dragons starting pitcher Austin Orewiler allowed four runs (two earned) in the second but settled down and followed that rough inning with four scoreless frames.  Over his six innings, Orewiler allowed five hits with no walks and one strikeout.


Cory Thompson (5-4) worked two innings in relief of Orewiler and was charged with the loss, allowing the unearned run in the eighth.

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.

Lorenzo Cedrola


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.
