Lake County at Dayton. Nick Travieso's Dragons' debut.
Travieso gets the first two batters to ground out and then singles, stolen bases and a walk combine for three runs. Three runs on four hits in the first for Lake County. Lake County gets a one-out triple followed by a sac fly. They lead 4-0 in the top of the second. Travieso gets his first K.
FWIW, Dayton announcer stated that Rahier and Vincej have been playing 'gold glove' defense.
Junior Arias singles and steals second (31).
Travieso consistently between 92 and 94 if I understood the announcer correctly. One out single, hit number six. Travieso then gets a strike'em out, throw'em out to end the third. 1-2-3 fourth for Nick. He racked up strikeout number three.
Romano threw a bullpen session and is expected to make his next start.
Face-first diving grab by Winker. I like it. And then Winker puts the Dragons on the board with a laser beam over the right-field wall. Home run number 8 for Winker, who is hitting over .360 for his last 39 plus games. Arias has a 17-game hitting streak.
Bullpen activity as Travieso may have reached his pitch limit. Wes Mugarian. Mace almost nailed Travieso's line: 4IP 6H 4R 4ER 1BB 3K.
Dayton fell behind 4-0, rallied to make it close but eventually fell by a score of 6-5.
In relief, Mugarian allowed a run in his two innings of work. Chacin allowed an unearned run in his two innings of work. Klimesh pitched a scoreless frame.
Amaral, Terry and Gelalich each singled and doubled. Winker had a solo blast.
Both teams' shortstops made errors in the game. Vincej's was his 6th; Paulino's his 23rd. Yikes!
Lake County 6 Dayton 5.
