CLEVELAND, OH – The Cleveland Indians announced recently a two-year contract extension for Manager TERRY FRANCONA thru the 2022 season.

Francona, 59, is in his seventh season at the helm, guiding the franchise to the American League’s best record at 547-427 (.562) during his tenure since 2013. “Tito” has led the club to three consecutive American League Central Division titles, captured the American League crown in 2016 and has led Cleveland to four Postseason appearances in six full seasons. He is already sixth in career managerial wins (547) in the 119-year history of the franchise while his .562 career winning pct. is third-best in club history.

The New Brighton, PA native owns an 18-year Major League managerial record of 1576-1342 (.540) with Philadelphia (1997-2000), Boston (2004-11) and Cleveland (2013-19) as his 1576 wins currently rank second among active Major League skippers. He has guided his clubs to a pair of World Series titles (Boston 2004, 2007), 14 consecutive winning seasons, has received BBWAA Manager of the Year votes in nine different seasons and was named A.L. Manager of the Year in both 2013 and 2016. Francona has led his teams to at least 90 wins 10 times in his career, most among active managers and has accomplished the feat in four of his six full seasons with the Indians.

“Simply put, Tito has been a transformational leader, who has not only impacted our Major League clubhouse, but also the entire organization,” said Indians President of Baseball Operations CHRIS ANTONETTI. “Our relationship has been truly collaborative and we are all fortunate to have a future Hall-of-Fame manager guiding our team as we continue to pursue our ultimate goal of bringing a World Series championship to the city of Cleveland.”

Ft. Wayne rallies from 3-1 deficit to earn 9-5 Monday night win over the Dragons

Dayton (R-H-E):  5-8-2

Fort Wayne (R-H-E):  9-12-1


Win:  Henry Henry (2-0)

Loss:  Adrian Rodriguez (0-1)

Save:  None

HRDayton: None

HRFort Wayne:  None


Fort Wayne, Ind.—The Fort Wayne TinCaps overcame a 3-1 deficit with eight runs over their last three offensive innings as they defeated the Dayton Dragons 9-5 on Monday night in the first game of a three-game series.  The loss dropped the Dragons to 2-3 on the season.

Dragons starting pitcher Lyon Richardson, the Reds second round draft pick in 2018 out of Jensen Beach High School in Florida, pitched well in his Midwest League debut.  Richardson allowed a bases-loaded walk in the first inning, then retired the next 10 Fort Wayne batters.  He left the game after four innings and 73 pitches, allowing one run on two hits with two walks and five strikeouts. Richardson was not involved in the decision.

The Dragons scored two runs in the third inning and one more in the top of the sixth to take a 3-1 lead to the bottom of the sixth inning. But Fort Wayne’s offense came alive as they scored three in the sixth, two in the seventh, and three in the eighth to take a 9-3 lead before the Dragons scored two in the ninth to close out the scoring.

The Dragons trailed 1-0 before taking the lead with two runs in the third.  Reniel Ozuna doubled to start the inning, went to third on Michael Siani’s sacrifice, and scored on an error.  Mariel Baustista’s sacrifice fly brought in Jonathan Willems later in the inning to make it 2-1.  The Dragons scored again in the top of the sixth when Bren Spillane doubled to right and scored on a single by Miguel Hernandez to make it 3-1.


Fort Wayne took advantage of several defensive miscues by the Dragons in the bottom of the sixth to score three runs.  The Dragons committed two errors in the inning, had a passed ball that allowed a run to score, and failed to catch a fly ball when an outfielder slipped as he came to a stop and fell to the ground.  The three runs in the sixth gave Fort Wayne a 4-3 lead.  They added to their lead in the seventh with a two-run double by Nick Gatewood to make it 6-3, and then tacked on three runs in the eighth on five hits in the inning.


A double by Juan Martinez keyed a two-run ninth for the Dragons.


Dayton finished with eight hits by eight different players.  Martinez, Spillane, and Ozuna each had a double.


The loss was charged to Dragons reliever Adrian Rodriguez (0-1), who worked one and two-thirds innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits with one walk and four strikeouts.

On the Air:  All Dragons games are broadcast on radio on Fox Sports 980 WONE AM.  Games can be heard on smart phones, iPads, and other mobile devices via the free Dragons Mobile App, or on a computer at  Games are also available on HD Radio on 104.7 WTUI HD 2.
