Dragons clinch first playoff berth in six years

Dragons clinch first playoff berth in six years.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WRGT) -- The Dayton Dragons clinch a playoff spot for the first time since 2011 following their win against the Tin Caps Friday night.

The team got a brilliant pitching performance from starter Scott Moss. He hurled six inning of two hit ball while striking out 11 batters.

The Dragons needed losses from both South Bend and Lansing to clinch the spot. The Cubs lost 6-5 with the Lugnuts getting blown out by division leading West Michigan 15-8.

With the first half of the season coming to a close, West Michigan will get a playoff spot as the division leader, and Dayton will scoop up the wildcard.
