The Blue Wahoos pitching staff was walking a fine line as they were walking plenty of Braves hitters, but outside of the first run of the game, Mississippi was held scoreless. Pensacola took the lead for good in the second inning as they plated two runs on Bryan Anderson’s 4th home run of the season. A Juan Silverio solo shot padded the lead in the 5th. Back-to-back homers in the 6th by Travis Mattair and Bryan Anderson made it 5-1. Anderson is now tied for the league lead with five home runs. He is tied with teammates Donald Lutz and Rey Navarro. Shane Dyer lowered his ERA to 0.93 on the season as he picked up his first save. Brodie Greene got the start in center field and made a very nice catch in the right-center gap.

Dayton took over the game in the 3rd inning as they played seven runs in the top of the frame as they sent 11 batters to the plate that inning. That was all that the pitching needed as Nick Travieso fired five shutout innings and lowered his ERA on the year to 1.23 before handing the ball to the bullpen. Pedro Diaz fired a shutout inning before Tony Amezcua ran into some trouble as he allowed two runs in two innings. Zack Weiss closed the game out with a perfect 9th. Weiss still has a 0.00 ERA on the season. Offensively Phillip Ervin had a big game as he drove in four. Joe Hudson only had one hit but he made it count as he doubled to deep center field to drive in two runs. The win moved Dayton ahead of Great Lakes and into first place.
