    Chris Heisey bunts to sac him over and the fielder air mails it. Heisey on 2nd, Castro on 3rd with no outs. Gotta cash this one in.

    Mississippi gets the lead runner on and Denove throws him out trying to steal second (maybe a hit and run though as the hitter did swing and miss).

    Dragons' Ravin drains Great Lakes
    Pitches six scoreless innings, giving up three hits and a walk; gets help in four-run fifth.

    DAYTON — Worried they might lose their low Class A team in Midland, Mich., to another organization, the Dodgers stacked Great Lakes with a third of their best prospects and told the Loons to go out and win.

    On opening night Thursday, April 9, they clobbered the Dragons.

    One night later, Josh Ravin shut the Loons down with a few “deep breaths.”

    Ravin, a self-described “disaster” last summer, went six scoreless innings, allowing three hits and a walk while his teammates backed him with a four-run fifth on the way to a 6-1 victory Friday at chilly Fifth Third Field.

    When Devaris Gordon led off with a bloop single to left, then stole second, Ravin was in trouble at the top of the game. Only Ravin nailed Gordon at second, stabbing a hard grounder and catching the runner too far off the bag. Catcher Jordan Wideman recorded the second out on a steal attempt and Jaime Pedroza struck out.

    Ravin was on his way.

    “I took some deep breaths,” Ravin said. “You can’t let those things (bloop hits, etc.) bother you. Breathing like that slows the game down.”

    Great Lakes spent two losing seasons with the Dodgers, who promised a more promising lineup if the Loons would re-sign for two more years. It happened, and 11 of the organization’s Top 30 prospects — even eight who played at a higher level last season — were shipped to Midland. Thursday, the Loons busted Dayton 14-3.

    “It’s a different day,” Dragons manager Todd Benzinger said. “You make your mark against players better than you if you want to be a prospect, too.”

    Four Dragons collected two hits, including center fielder Dave Sappelt for the second straight night.

    The Dragons and Loons finish the series tonight with 2008’s National High School Player of the Year Ethan Martin making his pro debut for Great Lakes.

    Dragons’ tales

    Loons manager Juan Bustabad said the Dodgers split their best low prospects between Great Lakes and their high A California team so, “a lot of kids will learn how to win early in their careers, and they will want to win.”

    • Bustabad and Benzinger played together in the Red Sox minor league system.

    • Former Dragons manager Donnie Scott called to say Benzinger shouldn’t worry about the big opening night loss.

    “My first year managing (rookie) Billings,” Scott said, “we lost our first four games by like 10 runs each to the Dodgers’ team, then we went on to win the league.”

    Ravin was working 89-92 with his fastball last night. Just for those who were curious.
