Dayton scored five runs in the seventh inning to rally for an 8-5 win against Fort Wayne in front of 3,702 fans Wednesday at Parkview Field.
Here are the highlights.
Key at-bat: Jaren Matthews two-run triple in the seventh gave Dayton a 7-5 lead. The Dragons had tied the game with back-to-back home runs by Donald Torreyes and Dominic D'Anna.
Key out: Trailing 8-5, the TinCaps had runners on second and third with two outs. Dayton third baseman David Vidal made a leaping catch of a line drive hit by Luis Domoromo to end the inning.
Welcome back: Robert Lara became a part of Fort Wayne baseball history with his game-winning home run that sent the TinCaps to the Midwest League championship series. Lara was a catcher then. Now he is a pitcher. Lara returned to the TinCaps Wednesday from Lake Elsinore, where he had an 11.25 ERA in 11 relief outings.
"When you are under .500 like we are, it's the little things that happen. We had guys in scoring position as well. We just didn't get the big hits and they got the big hits."
