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

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.
