The Dayton Dragons had no answer for South Bend pitchers David Holmberg and Blake Cooper, who combined on a three-hit shutout in the first game of a scheduled doubleheader on Sunday.

The second game in South Bend, Indiana was postponed due to rain and will be played on Monday.

The loss snapped the Dragons’ four-game winning streak and ended a personal winning streak for Dragons starting pitcher Daniel Corcino, who had won six straight pitching decisions.

Corcino, now 6-3, pitched a complete game but took the loss. He threw six innings, giving up eight hits and three earned runs with one walk and eight strikeouts.

Dayton, 26-23 on the season, began the day in a three-way tie for second place in the Midwest League’s East Division. The top two teams in the first half of the league’s split-season format qualify for the playoffs. There are 21 games left.

Pittsburgh dumps Haywood immediately after domestic violence arrest

When Michael Haywood was hired by Pittsburgh athletic director Steve Pederson on December 16, the move was met with on enthusiam by alumni, boosters, fans, former players, students and current players. The question in everybody’s mind was how can a school with Top 25 and BCS Bowl game apirations hire a coach with two years heading coaching experience from a mid-major school like Miami of Ohio.

Furthermore, at Haywood’s first press conference with the media, he never mentioned winning, but kept on insisting that the Pitt players would be disciplined, attend classes regularly and dress professionally. It was not what people in the Steel City wanted to hear.

They still wonder why head coach Dave Wannstedt, a Pitt graduate was let go in the first place. He was let go after six seasons and is still angered about his ouster and has not said whether he’ll coach the Panthers (7-5)  in the upcoming Compass Bowl next Saturday against Kentucky (6-6).

Pittsburgh is now without a head football coach once again as they have fired Mike Haywood. The university says they would not allow him to continue in the job that he had held for only 2 1/2 weeks because of his arrest on a domestic violence charge.

Haywood was released Saturday from St. Joseph County Jail in Indiana on $1,000 cash bond, after the charge was upgraded from a misdemeanor to felony domestic battery in the presence of a minor child.

Haywood was released on Saturday afternoon, and just a few hours later, Pittsburgh Chancellor Mark A. Nordenberg moved quickly and issued a press release statement saying that the coach had been dismissed, “effective immediately,” and the school was reopening its search.

Haywood’s firing came without him moving into the head football coach’s office, landing any recruits, hiring any assistants, held a practice, coached a game or had a chance to persuade any of the incoming freshman, which totals 18 to stay with their decision to attend Pittsburgh. Rumors have it that all of those recruits don’t like the fact that Wannstedt was fired, Haywood wasn’t on the job long enough. What they see is a program with a lot of indecision and a quick trigger on coaches.

No one knows if Haywood had signed a contract or not with the Pitt Panthers. Yes, they did name him head coach, but these types of contracts takes weeks and months to get worked out as they have to go through the the president, chancellor or provost’s office for approval and then the final ok is given by the board of trustees. Coaches contracts also have moral clauses that allow colleges and universities to fire a coach if they get into legal trouble which causes embarassment  and ugly press from his personal behavior.

Haywood was arrested about 3 p.m. Friday after a custody issue developed with a woman with whom the coach has a child with, police have said. The unidentified woman told police that Haywood grabbed her by the arm and neck and pushed her as she was leaving the home that Haywood owns in South Bend, Indiana, where he was an assistant coach at Notre Dame before taking the Miami job. St. Joseph County Police say that the woman had marks on her neck, arms and back.

Haywood led the Miami (Ohio) RedHawks to a 9-4 record and the Mid-American Conference title in just his second season.

The big question for Haywood now, is who will give him a chance to even be an assistant coach after this incident which will take several months to come to the courts and settle. It’ll probably be too late to get a job for 2011.
