Garcia ties club record with 5 hits in Dragons 12-5 drubbing of Timber Rattlers

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

 

Appleton, Wisc.—Dayton’s Jose Garcia tied a club record with five hits as the Dragons defeated the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 12-5 on Friday night.  The game featured a rain delay of one hour, 20 minutes after the third inning and ended at 12:52 a.m. EDT.  The Dragons victory allowed them to avoid a sweep in the three-game series.

 

Garcia became just the ninth player in Dragons history to collect five hits in a game and the first since Seth Mejias-Brean in 2013.  He had an opportunity to break the club record in his final at-bat in the ninth inning, but grounded out to shortstop.

The Dragons finished the night with 18 hits, one short of their 2018 season high.  Along with Garcia’s five hits, Andy Sugilio and Mark Kolozsvary each added three, while Leandro Santana and Alejo Lopez had two.  Santana had a two-run home run in the fifth inning, his eighth homer of the year.

 

The Dragons broke open a 5-2 game with seven runs in the sixth inning as they sent 11 batters to the plate.  The seven runs in one inning established a new season high, and they tied the season high for hits in an inning with six.  All six hits were singles.  Garcia had two hits in the inning, scored one run, and drove in two.  Kolozsvary contributed a two-run single in the inning and Lopez also had an RBI single as the Dragons jumped ahead 12-2.

 

Dragons starting pitcher Hunter Greene saw his start shortened by the rain delay.  He worked three innings, allowing one run on one hit with two walks and five strikeouts.  Cory Thompson (5-3) was credited with the win, going two innings and allowing one run.  Brian Hunter picked up a three-inning save, allowing two runs.

 

The Dragons improved to 13-15 in the second half.  They are one-half game behind Fort Wayne, the wildcard leader in the Midwest League East Division Second Half playoff chase.
