ICYMI: Hunter Greene shines in outing; Peoria Chiefs rally from deficit to beat Dragons, 4-3 to take series on 5/12/18

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

 

May 12, 2018

Dayton, Ohio—Dragons starting pitcher Hunter Greene enjoyed his best outing of the season and was nearly perfect over four scoreless innings.  Greene allowed only two base runners, one of whom reached on a misplayed infield popup that was scored as a base hit.  Both hits against Greene were singles and he struck out five while walking no one.  Greene’s fastball reached 100 mph in three of his four innings including his last pitch of the night, a called third strike.  Greene threw 57 pitches on the night, and threw almost exclusively fastballs over his first three innings.

Hunter Greene had his best outing of the season

However, The Peoria Chiefs erased a three-run deficit and broke a 3-3 tie with a run in the ninth inning to defeat the Dayton Dragons 4-3 on Saturday night before a crowd of 8,788 at Fifth Third Field.  The Chiefs swept the three-game series with the Dragons.

The loss was charged to Dragons reliever John Ghyzel, who worked the ninth inning and allowed the tie-breaking run.  He fell to 2-2.

The Dragons built a 3-0 lead over the first two innings.  In the bottom of the first, Andy Sugilio, in his first game since being placed on the disabled list the second day of the season, belted a two-run home run.  Jeter Downs hit a solo homer in the second, his fourth home run of the year.

 

But the Dragons collected just two hits after the second inning and were held scoreless over the rest of the night.  Peoria scored one run in the sixth and two in the seventh to tie the game at 3-3.

 

The Chiefs broke the tie in the ninth without a ball leaving the infield.  Bryce Denton led off the inning with an infield single, went to second on an error by Dayton third baseman Leandro Santana, took third on a sacrifice bunt, and scored on a wild pitch.

The Dragons have seemingly played better from behind than with the lead in recent games.  They have notched 14 comeback wins this season including four games when they trailed by at least three runs, but Saturday’s loss was the fifth time that the Dragons have lost a game they led by at least three runs.  The Dragons home record when they score the first run of the game is 4-4 compared to 8-2 when the opponent scores the game’s first run.

ICYMI: Peoria Chiefs uses 4-run fourth inning to defeat Dragons, 7-4 on 5/11/18

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

 

May 11, 2018

Dayton, Ohio—Peoria’s Taylor Bryant hit a three-run home run as part of a four-run fourth inning as the Chiefs erased a three-run deficit and defeated the Dayton Dragons 7-4 on Friday night.  A crowd of 8,054 was in attendance at Fifth Third Field as the Chiefs won their second straight game in the three-game series that will conclude on Saturday night.

Dragons starting pitcher Tyler Mondile (0-3) pitched extremely well outside of a brief stretch in the fourth inning.  He lasted six full innings, allowing six hits and four runs with no walks and four strikeouts.  Mondile allowed only two base runners outside of the fourth inning but was charged with the loss.

The Dragons finished with eight hits.  Miles Gordon went 4 for 5 with three runs scored, marking the third four-hit game of the year for a Dayton player.

The Dragons jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning.  Jeter Downs walked to open the inning and advanced from first to third on a hit-and-run single by Miles Gordon.  After Gordon stole second, Michael Beltre lined a single to right to drive in both runners and give the Dragons a two-run lead.

 

In the third, the Dragons added another run.  Gordon singled to right field to with one out and Beltre followed with a hit-and-run single to center field. Gordon came all the way around to score on the play when Peoria center fielder Jonatan Machado bobbled Beltre’s base hit to make it 3-0.

 

But Peoria responded with a four-run fourth inning.  The Chiefs got a pair of singles with two outs before Bryce Denton hit a bouncing ball along the third base line.  The ball rolled to the Dayton bullpen, where a Dragons reliever grabbed the ball, thinking it was foul.  But the ball was called fair by plate umpire Tanner Moore, resulting in a ground rule double.  The Dragons argued the call and both umpires discussed the play, but the call stood. One run scored on the play to make it 3-1.  The next Peoria hitter, Taylor Bryant, belted a three-run home run off the left field foul pole to give the Chiefs a 4-3 lead.

 

The Chiefs added single runs in the seventh and eighth innings to extend their lead to 6-3.  The Dragons threatened in the eighth, getting a lead-off single by Gordon and a walk to Beltre, followed by a run-scoring single by Stuart Fairchild to bring in Gordon and make it a 6-4 game.  The Dragons had runners at first and second with no outs, but Montrell Marshall struck out, John Sansone popped out to shortstop, and Narciso Crook struck out to end the threat.
