FULL FLOWER MOON

Flowers spring forth in abundance this month. Depending on the Native American tribe, May’s Full Moon was called the Full Flower Moon as well as Mother’s Moon, Milk Moon, and Corn Planting Moon. The May Moon marked a time of increasing fertility with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom.

Garcia’s eighth inning run-scoring double gives Dragons 2-1 May 29 win over Western Michigan Whitecaps

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

 

May 29, 2018

 

Dayton, Ohio.—Jose Garcia doubled to bring in Miles Gordon from first base and break a 1-1 tie in the eighth inning and relief pitcher John Ghyzel pitched out of a bases loaded jam in the ninth as the Dayton Dragons defeated the West Michigan Whitecaps 2-1 on Tuesday night.  A crowd of 7,310 was in attendance at Fifth Third Field for the start of a three-game series.

 

Dragons starting pitcher Hunter Greene fired a professional career high five innings, allowing just one run on a solo homer by West Michigan’s Jordan Pearce in the fourth inning.  The home run by Pearce was the first hit against Greene.  He finished the night allowing three hits and two walks with four strikeouts.  He was not involved in the decision.  Greene threw 79 pitches, also a career high.

Jose Garcia

 

West Michigan led 1-0 until Dayton’s Montrell Marshall blasted a solo home run in the seventh to tie the game.  The homer was Marshall’s third of the year.

 

Gordon led off the eighth with a single to right field, just the fourth hit of the night for the Dragons.  One out later, Garcia connected on a line drive over the head of the West Michigan center fielder to bring Gordon in from first base and give Dayton a 2-1 lead.

 

Ghyzel retired the first two batters in the ninth inning on a ground out and strikeout.  He got the third batter, Dylan Rosa, to swing and miss at a third strike in the dirt.  The ball bounced several feet from catcher Hendrik Clementina and Rosa reached first base on the play.  Dragons manager Luis Bolivar argued that the hitter had made contact with the baseball after he swung at it, and had deflected the ball further away from Clementina, a rules violation that would result in the hitter being called out.  The plate umpire stayed with his original call and the game continued with Rosa at first base and two outs.

 

Ghyzel walked the next two batters to load the bases, pushing the tying run to third and the potential run to second.  But he struck out pinch hitter Brady Policelli looking to end the game and earn his league-leading 10th save.

 

Dragons reliever Wendolyn Bautista (3-3) worked three scoreless innings to earn the win.  He allowed four hits and no walks with four strikeouts.

 

The Dragons finished with five hits.  No one had more than one.  Stuart Fairchild’s 11-game hitting streak ended with a 0 for 3 night.
