Game Notes

Neither team scored in this game until the 8th inning when Lake County took a 3-0 lead. The Dragons countered by scoring three of their own in the top of the 9th. The game then went to the 10th where Dayton got a 2-run double from Sal Stewart and then an RBI single from Cam Collier to put them up 6-3. The Captains got a 2-out, 2-run home run in their half of the 10th, but couldn’t get anything else as the Dragons held on for the win.

Jay Allen II was 1-for his last 48 entering the 9th inning of this game, dating back to June 16th. Dayton was down 3-0 and the bases were loaded with one out. He doubled in two runs and probably felt the weight of the world lifted off his shoulders.

Sal Stewart continued to swing a hot bat. He’s got three doubles in the last two games. Since June 25th he’s hitting .355/.487/.613 with nine runs and eight runs batted in over the nine games he’s played in.

Cam Collier had been in a bit of a slump over his last five games, going 2-14, but he broke out of the slump with three hits on the night.

T.J. Sikkema gave up six runs in 3.0 innings in his first outing of June. Since then he’s allowed three earned runs in 21.2 innings (1.25 ERA). During that time he’s given up just 10 hits, walked just five, and he’s struck out 21.

The Dragons pitchers combined for 16 strikeouts on the day. They had just two walks.

    A Hunter Hollan sighting! Not the greatest debut, but at least he’s healthy enough to out there finally.

    Kyle Henley is going to be a dude if he can cut that K rate down a little bit. Hit .295/.364/.423 in June to go along with his 19 stolen bases. Small sample size for July with only 3 games played so far, but .444/.545/.667 over those three games. Imagine that type of speed at leadoff with EDLC right after him hitting 2nd.

    Similarly Bernard Moon hit .328/.466/.397 in June. You’d like to see a little more power, but that may come in time, Moon has a solid frame, and after only 2 walks in May, he drew 8 walks in June, not to mention being hit by 7 pitches in June. His K rate is already fairly solid.

    Those two along with Lin are a nice trio of guys to look forward to seeing in Daytona next year

    Reds scouting department looks pretty good as Reds selected Sikkema and Levi Jordan in the Minor League Rule V draft in December. TJ has really looked sharp and seems to be getting better as a starter as he gets stretched out.

      Yeah, typically you tend to get minor league bench players out of there. Gotta wonder, though, with the 165 player limit if we’ll start seeing a few more guys like these pop up in the MiLB R5.
