Keys to the game

Four TinCaps pitchers struck out 12 Dayton hitters in a 1-0 victory Wednesday at Parkview Field.

B.J. Guinn scored the game's only run in the eighth inning on a fielder's choice. Mykal Stokes brought Guinn home. Stokes hit a one-hopper to first, and the throw home was late.

Here are the highlights.

Key at-bat: Guinn reached on a bunt, and another bunt, by Chris Bisson, moved him to second. The TinCaps failed to get down a bunt in a similar situation in Game 2 of the Tuesday's doubleheader.

Key out: TinCaps pitching, beginning with starting pitcher Matt Jackson, was strong throughout. Dayton did get runners on first and second with two outs in the top of the eighth. Jeff Ibarra struck out Yorman Rodriguez to end the inning.

Still streaking: Rymer Liriano extended his hitting streak to 18 games with a single to center in the first inning. Liriano left the game in the sixth because of tightness in a hamstring. Manager Shawn Wooten said it's unlikely Liriano will play Thursday for precautionary reasons.


"It was a fastball outside and I just went with it. I made hard contact. It went right to him, but it bounced off his chest."
