Dayton Dragons, Wright State University’s College of Education and Human Services to honor Top Teacher on Tuesday



Missy Nix to be honored at Fifth Third Field on May 8



Dayton, Ohio – The Dragons and Wright State University’s College of Education and Human Services will honor Missy Nix as a Dragons MVP Program Top Teacher on Tuesday, May 8 at 7:00 p.m. when the Dayton Dragons take on the Cedar Rapids Kernels at Fifth Third Field.


The Dragons MVP Program Top Teacher Award honors teachers for their outstanding accomplishments in his or her classroom and community.


Missy Nix- Top Teacher Award Honoree


Missy Nix is a 4th grade teacher at Shawnee Elementary. She is a proud Wright State University alum, earning both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees there.


She grew up thinking she would be an accountant, but the further along she went in life, she knew she was being called to something different. That something different was a career as a teacher.

“I believe God put me in the teaching position I am in,” Missy said. “I receive strength and joy from this direction he gave me.”


Missy also knows that teaching our children is definitely a team effort. “A lot of recognition belongs to the parents of these MVPs. They have instilled the values necessary for student success academically, behaviorally, and personally.”


Of many great stories Missy has, one student sticks out from the rest. Six years ago, Missy had a student who was struggling to improve his reading level from one year to the next. That summer, Missy was determined to help him improve his reading level. Every week the pair would get together and Missy would challenge him with progressively difficult passages to read. They would even talk each day on the phone so he could read the passage out loud to her. By the end of that summer, the student had made huge strides and caught up with his peers.


Missy has been using the Dragons MVP Program since the beginning. Her favorite part of the program is being able to give her students the power to nominate their peers for recognition as a Dragons MVP winner.


For her dedication to go above and beyond for her classroom and all of the students at Shawnee Elementary, Missy Nix is being honored as a Dragons MVP Program Top Teacher. This award is made possible by Wright State University’s College of Education and Human Services.


LumberKings four-run ninth inning rally outlasts Dragons 9-8 Sunday afternoon




Clinton, Iowa—Clinton’s Jack Larsen belted a walk-off home run leading off the bottom of the ninth inning as the Lumber Kings battled back from a four-run deficit and defeated the Dayton Dragons 9-8 on Sunday afternoon.  The loss snapped the Dragons six-game winning streak and ended their bid for a perfect road trip.  They finished their six-game Western Division swing with a 5-1 record.


The Dragons led 8-4 going to the bottom of the sixth inning before Clinton scored in the sixth and three in the seventh to tie the game.  Larsen’s homer snapped Clinton’s five-game losing streak.

The Dragons broke a 1-1 tie with three runs in the third inning.  Miles Gordon walked to start the inning and Jeter Downs reached on a bad hop single to move Gordon to second.  With one out, Michael Beltre singled to left field to drive in Gordon, and after a wild pitch, Stuart Fairchild singled to left field to drive in both Downs and Beltre to make it 4-1.


Clinton battled back with three runs in the fourth to tie the game, 4-4.  But the Dragons responded with three runs in the top of the fifth.  John Sansone delivered a two-run triple with two outs to break the tie, and he scored on Jose Garcia’s single to center field to make it 7-4.  The Dragons tacked on another run in the sixth to extend their lead to 8-4.

The Dragons finished with 11 hits.  Fairchild led the attack with two hits and three runs batted in.  Sansone also had two hits and drove two runs. Downs and Crook each collected two hits as well.  Beltré had one hit to extend his hitting streak to 11 straight games, the longest of the year for a Dayton player.

Dragons starting pitcher Tyler Mondile went five innings, allowing four runs on nine hits with one walk and five strikeouts. Sarkis Ohanian took over to start the ninth and threw only one pitch as Larsen ended the game with a home run.  Ohanian (1-1) was charged with the loss.

In the Standings:  The Dragons fell to 15-12 with the loss.  They dropped back into fourth place in the Midwest League East Division, two games behind Bowling Green, who took over first place from Lansing, as the Hot Rods picked up their eighth straight win on Sunday by completing a series sweep in Burlington.

Game Broadcast:  All Dragons games are broadcast on radio on Fox Sports 980 WONE and on the internet at Games are also available on the Dayton Dragons mobile app.

2018 Team Notes

  • The Dragons came one win short of sweeping their six-game road trip when they lost on Sunday. The last time the Dragons swept two straight road series was July of 2014 when they swept three-game sets at Bowling Green (July 4-6) and at Beloit (July 16-18). The Dragons have not swept two straight road sets that were scheduled back-to-back since July 4-9, 2010, when they won three straight at West Michigan followed by three straight wins at Bowling Green.
  • The Dragons have been the streakiest team in professional baseball in 2018. They started the year with a three-game losing streak, won the next nine games, lost the next eight, and won the next six prior to losing Sunday.
  • The Dragons scored 50 runs in the six games (8.3 runs/game) on the road trip at Burlington and Clinton, including at least seven runs in every game.
  • The Dragons hit 11 home runs in the six games on the road trip after hitting 10 homers in their first 21 games of the season.
  • The Dragons team ERA in their 15 wins is 3.71 (136 IP, 56 ER). The ERA in the 12 losses is 7.65 (100 IP, 85 ER).

2018 Individual Notes

  • Hendrik Clementina on the Burlington-Clinton road trip: 5 G, 8 for 15, 4 home runs, one triple, 11 RBI, and seven walks.
