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

 

June 13, 2018

 

South Bend, Ind.—Four Dayton pitchers combined to scatter eight hits over the first six innings and then retire the final 10 batters of the game as the Dragons edged the South Bend Cubs 2-1 on Wednesday night.  The Dragons will try to complete a road series sweep of the Cubs on Thursday.

Tyler Mondile won his second game

Adrian Chacon

Dauri Moretav

 

Dragons starting pitcher Tyler Mondile (2-5) worked out of trouble in every inning, tossing five scoreless frames.  He allowed seven hits with one walk and three strikeouts to earn the win.

The Cubs stranded 10 runners over the first six innings and had men in scoring position in each of the six.  South Bend was 2 for 11 on the night with men in scoring position before Dragons relievers Dauri Moreta and Ryan Nutof combined for the final three and one-third innings without allowing a base runner.  Dragons pitchers have now allowed just one earned run in 18 innings in the series.

 

Ryan Nutof gets his second save

The Dragons broke a scoreless tie in the top of the fifth inning.  With two outs, Montrell Marshall walked on a 3-2 pitch and then scored from first on a double by Jose Garcia.  Mitch Piatnik followed with a base hit to center field to drive in Garcia and make it 2-0.  South Bend scored one run with two outs in the sixth inning to close out the scoring.

Moreta was dominant in a set-up role for the Dragons.  He went two and one-third innings, retiring all seven batters he faced, with six strikeouts including the last five batters he faced.  Nearly all of his strikeouts came on swinging strikes at breaking balls below the knees.

 

Nutof earned his second save with a perfect ninth inning, striking out the final hitter to close out the Dragons second straight win.

 

The Dragons finished with eight hits.  Garcia was 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI.

 

The Dragons improved to 31-33 in the first half with four games to play.  They can still finish with a winning record in the half by winning their final four, or reach the .500 mark with three wins.  South Bend fell to 33-32.
