    Bats lost, that sucks. How many did the Reds call up? Are the Bats just so depleted now, that its going to be that much tougher to win a playoff series?

    They are just facing a team with real good pitching.

    It's the opposite, the Reds are leaving players down so Louisville has as strong a team as they can.

    Dragons' Horst gets standing ovation, butterflies, win
    Starter pitches Dragons to 3-1 victory over Lansing; Soto drives in two runs.

    By Marc Katz

    Staff Writer

    Thursday, September 04, 2008

    DAYTON Everybody in the crowd at Fifth Third Field on Wednesday, Sept. 3, understood starter Jeremy Horst deserved an ovation, and they gave it to him, standing.

    It was Horst who won the Dragons' opening playoff game, with Neftali Soto's two-run double the determining blow in a 3-1 Dragons victory over Lansing as the Midwest League playoffs opened. Cincinnati Reds General Manager Walk Jocketty and some of his staff watched.

    The best-of-three series continues tonight in Lansing's Oldsmobile Park.

    During a season which the Dragons have been very up and very down, the turning point for a final upward cycle came the first week of July, when Horst walked out of the bullpen and Soto flew in from rookie ball.

    The Dragons were a moribund team at that point, having gone 14-36 in the 50 games just prior to Soto's addition in the lineup as a third baseman/designated hitter. On July 6, his first game, the Dragons lost, then won 31-of-53 games to the end of the regular season.

    Horst began starting just a few days before, and, like Soto, the Dragons lost in his debut start, but went 8-2 in Horst's starts while he was 5-0 with a 1.64 ERA.

    "There were other guys here doing well," said Soto, a 19-year-old who hit .326 for the Dragons. "I was just trying to help the team."

    As well as Horst was pitching, Lansing's Marc Rzepczynski was matching him, until the sixth. With one out, Dayton's Jake Kahaulelio reached on a throwing error and Zack Cozart singled to left. Soto then drove a ball that center fielder Darin Mastroianni made a dive to catch, but couldn't.

    "I thought that center fielder was going to track that thing down," said Dragons manager Donnie Scott. "He has been hitting well, and how about that sacrifice fly by Denis Phipps?"

    It was Horst, though, who received the standing "O" when he reached 100 pitches in the seventh and was lifted with two out and a man on.

    "I got butterflies," Horst said. "That was awesome. I never had a standing ovation before."
