May 8, 2018

 

Dayton, Ohio—John Sansone blasted a three-run home run and Narciso Crook delivered a three-run double as the Dayton Dragons erased a 6-0 deficit to defeat the Cedar Rapids Kernels 8-6 on Tuesday night.  A crowd of 8,646, the Dragons largest of the year, saw the Dragons win for the eighth time in the last nine games.

 

Tuesday’s win marked the second time in the last eight days that the Dragons have won a game in which they trailed by six runs.  The Dragons rallied from a deficit of at least six runs to win a game only once over the previous four seasons from 2014-17.

Dragons reliever Tyler Buffett pitched a scoreless eighth inning, stranding two runners.  Cory Thompson gave up a lead-off single in the ninth but retired the next three hitters to earn his second save.  Sarkis Ohanian, the second of four Dragons pitchers, was credited with the win after tossing one and one-third innings of scoreless relief.  Dragons starting pitcher Austin Orewiler worked the first five and two-thirds innings, allowing six runs (five earned) on eight hits with four walks and three strikeouts.

 

The Dragons finished with nine hits.  Crook led the way, going 2 for 4 with four runs batted in.  Gordon had two hits, a walk, and two runs scored. Hendrik Clementina had two hits to raise his batting average to .397.

Cedar Rapids scored two runs in the first inning, another in the third, and three in the fourth to open a 6-0 lead.  But the Dragons responded with four runs in the bottom of the fourth to climb back to within striking distance.  Crook’s run-scoring double brought in Miles Gordon from first base, and later in the inning, Sansone connected on a home run with two men on base to make it 6-4.  The homer was Sansone’s third of the season.

 

There was no more scoring until the seventh inning when the Dragons took the lead.  They loaded the bases with two outs before Crook lined a double to the left field fence to drive in three runs and give the Dragons a 7-6 lead.  Stuart Fairchild followed with a single to center to bring in Crook and make it 8-6.

Dayton, Ohio—Four Dayton pitchers combined to scatter 10 hits and Jose Garcia collected two hits and drove in two runs as the Dragons defeated the Cedar Rapids Kernels 3-2 on Monday night.  The win was the seventh in the last eight games for the Dragons as they won the first game of a six-game home stand before a crowd of 7,741 at Fifth Third Field.

The Dragons held a 3-2 lead when they turned the game over to their bullpen with two outs in the sixth inning.  Ryan Nutof, Dauri Moreta, and John Ghyzel combined for the final 10 outs without allowing a run to preserve the win.

Dragons starting pitcher Wendolyn Bautista had his best start of the season.  He worked five and two-thirds innings, allowing two runs on nine hits with one walk and seven strikeouts to earn the win and improve to 2-1.  Ghyzel pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his sixth save.  He allowed a one-out single, followed by a walk, but retired the next two hitters on fly balls to end the game.

The Dragons got the scoring started in the bottom of the fourth inning.  Mark Kolozsvary walked and scored on Garcia’s double off the fence in center field as Garcia advanced to third on the throw home.  Leandro Santana followed with a sacrifice fly to bring in Garcia and make it 2-0.

 

Cedar Rapids scored one run in the top of the fifth before the Dragons answered with a run in the bottom of the inning.  After Montrell Marshall walked with one out, Kolozsvary doubled to move Marshall to third, and Garcia’s run-scoring single brought Marshall in to make it 3-1.  Cedar Rapids picked up a run in the sixth to again make it a one-run game at 3-2 before the Dragons bullpen closed out the game.

The Dragons finished with six hits.  Garcia, Kolozsvary, and Morgan Lofstrom each had two.
