compiled from staff, wire and Dayton Dragons info

Infielder Chris Richburg and catcher Mark Fleury each connected on two-run home runs in the first inning as the Dayton Dragons defeated the Bowling Green Hot Rods 5-3 Saturday night before a crowd of 8,755 at Fifth Third Field in Dayton.

The win was the Dragons second straight in the series and lifted their record back above the .500 mark at 12-11. Bowling Green is off to a horrible start to 2010 at 5-18.

Richburg got the scoring started with a two-run blast to the left field scoreboard area in the first inning, his third homer of the year. Kevin Coddington followed with a single and Fleury lined a home run to right, his first of the year, making the score 4-0.

Dayton added another run in the second inning on a two-out RBI double by Andrew Means to take a 5-0 lead.

Bowling Green had several scoring opportunities against struggling Dragons starting pitcher Brian Pearl. They left the bases loaded 3 times only scoring 2 runs in those situations. The Hot Rod left 10 runners on base over six innings and hit into three double plays.

Reliever Chase Ware entered the game in the sixth inning and retired the first eight batters he faced. Ware allowed one run in the ninth but recorded the victory. He worked four innings, allowing three hits and one run with no walks and two strikeouts to improve his record to 3-0.
