Rahier Belts Home Run in Dragons 9-6 Win
Dayton, Ohio—Tanner Rahier hit a two-run home run and Daniel Mateo drove in three runs to lead the Dayton Dragons to a 9-6 victory over the West Michigan on Friday night. A crowd of 7,760 saw the game at Fifth Third Field. The Dragons and Whitecaps have split the first two games of the season.
The Dragons took a 3-0 lead in the second inning, keyed by Rahier’s two-run homer to left-center field. Dayton added four more in the third to take a commanding 7-0 lead. A pair of run-scoring singles by Sebastian Elizalde and Joe Hudson were followed by Mateo’s two-run double to the left field corner as the Dragons enjoyed their second straight big inning.
West Michigan scored three runs in the top of the fourth to cut their deficit to 7-3, but the Dragons answered with one in the bottom of the inning when Beau Amaral doubled and eventually scored on Sean Buckley’s sacrifice fly.
West Michigan scored one run in the sixth inning and then rallied in the eighth to pull closer. They loaded the bases with no one out in the eighth and then scored on a bases loaded walk to make it 8-5. But Dragons reliever Layne Somsen struck out the next three hitters in order to stand three base runners. Amaral drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the eighth and West Michigan’s Raph Rhymes hit a solo homer in the ninth to close out the scoring.
The Dragons nine-hit attack was led by Amaral and Hudson, who both enjoyed their second straight two-hit night. Amaral also stole his second base of the series.
Dragons starting pitcher Sal Romano earned the win. He worked six innings, allowing nine hits and four runs with one walk and two strikeouts.
The Dragons host the Whitecaps again on Saturday night in the third game of the 2014 season. Ismael Guillon (7-8, 4.75 for Dayton in 2013) will start for the Dragons. Buck Farmer, the Tigers fifth round pick in 2013 out of Georgia Tech, will start for West Michigan. The game will begin at 7:05 p.m. at Fifth Third Field.
