Dragons Rained-Out on Wednesday after 4 Innings of Play

Dayton, Ohio--The Midwest League game between the Dayton Dragons and South Bend Silver Hawks at Fifth Third Field on Wednesday, May 14 has been canceled due to rain.  The game was stopped in the middle of the fourth inning with the score tied at 2-2.  The teams do not meet again in the first half season, so the game will not be completed.
 
Fans holding tickets for the Wednesday, May 14 game should retain their ticket stubs as a rain check.
 
Fans can exchange their May 14 game tickets for a ticket of equal or lesser value; or fans may exchange one (1) stadium seating bowl ticket for two (2) lawn tickets for any remaining Dragons home game during the 2014 season, based upon availability. This can be done at the Dragons Box Office at Fifth Third Field.
 
The Dragons will post an exchange form on their web site for fans wishing to process their exchange via mail.

This information will also be posted on the Dragons web site.  For additional information, please go to daytondragons.com or call the front office at (937) 228-2287.
 
The Dragons took a 1-0 lead in the second inning on a run-scoring double by Sammy Diaz before South Bend tied it in the top of the third.  Dayton’s Phillip Ervin belted a home run in the bottom of the third but South Bend answered with one run in the top of the fourth to knot the score at 2-2.  Because the game did not reach five innings, none of the statistics from the game will become official.
 
The Dragons gained a half-game on West Michigan on Wednesday after the Whitecaps lost to Great Lakes.  The result moves the Dragons back into first place, .005 percentage points ahead of West Michigan.
 
The Dragons travel to Lansing, Michigan to meet the Lansing Lugnuts in the start to a four-game series on Thursday night at 7:05 p.m.   Amir Garrett (0-3, 6.04) will start for Dayton against Lansing’s Chase De Jong (0-1, 3.71). The next Dragons home game at Fifth Third Field is Monday, May 19 against the Great Lakes Loons at 7:00 p.m. All Dragons games can be heard on WONE Radio (980 AM) and via the internet at wone.com and through the Dragons Mobile App.  Dragons Rained-Out on Wednesday after 4 Innings of Play

BREWERS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Johnny Cueto pitched seven solid innings, and the Cincinnati Reds stayed in the chase for the NL's top record by beating the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 on Tuesday night after learning they'll be without their manager for the rest of the week.

The Brewers dropped back-to-back games for the first time in more than a month, and it came at a bad time. They started the day 3 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the final NL wild card spot.

They got no break from the Reds, who clinched the NL Central title on Saturday night.

Manager Dusty Baker met players before the game and revealed he suffered a mini-stroke in addition to being treated for an irregular heartbeat last week. The 63-year-old manager hopes to return to the dugout next week.

REDS-BAKER

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Dusty Baker won't manage the Cincinnati Reds until the final series in St. Louis, giving him time to recover from an irregular heartbeat that left him hospitalized last week.

Baker met with owner Bob Castellini and his team on Tuesday before a game against the Brewers. Bench coach Chris Speier said he'll manage the final three home games against Milwaukee and three in Pittsburgh over the weekend, with Baker taking over for the last three games next week.

The 63-year-old manager was hospitalized in Chicago last Wednesday for an irregular heartbeat, a problem he's had for a while. He was in the hospital for four days, missing the Reds' 6-0 win over the Dodgers on Saturday night that clinched the NL Central title.

INDIANS-WHITE SOX

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox have lost sole possession of first place in the AL Central race, with the Indians playing spoiler. Gordon Beckham hit into a game-ending forceout with the potential tying run on second base yesterday as the Indians downed the White Sox 4-3.

Down 4-0 in the fourth inning, the White Sox closed within a run when Paul Konerko homered off Chris Perez leading off the ninth. Perez walked a pair of batters with two outs, and Beckham grounded to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who threw to second baseman Jason Kipnis for the force.

Chicago (82-72) had held sole possession of the division lead since September 3. Detroit pulled into a tie for the division lead with its win over Kansas City last night.

T25-OHIO ST-MATCHING UP

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Through four games and four victories, Ohio State's defense has faced a continual drumbeat of short passes, quick routes, screens and sweeps.

Every opponent, it seems, has relied on a sleight of hand.

Now the Buckeyes are looking forward to getting into familiar territory when they open Big Ten play.

When No. 14 Ohio State travels to 20th-ranked Michigan State on Saturday, the Buckeyes anticipate they'll run into a more conventional Midwestern attack. Granted, that means having to counteract the 244-pound blasts of the Spartans' massive Le'Veon Bell.

But after a month of chasing people, the Buckeyes think they might benefit from a change of pace from the subterfuge and rush-avoiding quick-hitters in a trade for raw man-on-man power struggles at the line of scrimmage.

T25-UPTIGHT SPARTANS

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan State's lackluster win last weekend got to coach Mark Dantonio.

After the Spartans beat Eastern Michigan 23-7 Saturday, Dantonio hurried through a terse news conference full of abrupt answers. The Michigan State coach said "next question" seven times in under a minute and was clearly annoyed with the way his team played.

On Tuesday, Dantonio spoke with reporters for around a half-hour, but Michigan State isn't making any players or assistants available this week. The Spartans' coach is trying to send a clear message to his players that it's time to get serious.
