The Dragons closed out the scoring in the seventh inning on consecutive doubles by Martinez and Lofstrom to make it 8-1.


Dragons starting pitcher Connor Curlis (1-1) worked five strong innings to earn the victory.  He allowed one run on a solo home run.  He gave up five hits with no walks and three strikeouts.  Alexis Diaz replaced Curlis and retired all nine batters he faced, striking out two. Jerry D’Andrea pitched a perfect ninth inning, also striking out two.  Lansing did not have a base runner after the fourth inning as the last 16 Lugnuts batters were retired.  Dragons pitchers did not allow a walk in the game.
