Dayton off to a hot start, hanging a crooked number in the top of the first.
Jeff Gelalich gets things rolling with a one-out double. Mejias-Brean walks and then Jesse Winker doubles them both home. Winker then puts his athleticism on display for the Redszone doubters by stealing third. Junior Arias reaches on an error as Winker comes home. Arias proceeds to steal second (25) and third (26) but is stranded there. Billy Hamilton sits in the Louisville dugout and thinks to himself 'Game on, dude'.
Pedro Diaz is the beneficiary of this three-run outburst.
Junior Arias is 0-2 but has reached both times on errors. He just stole his 27th base.
Diaz has given up a lone run through four full. 3-1 Dragons.
Singles by Gelalich, Mejias-Brean and Rahier up Dayton's lead to 4-1 through six. Diaz pitched five strong. Joey Housey is on in relief.
Dayton with an excellent effort today win 4-1.
