Keys to the game

Fort Wayne collected just five hits in a 9-1 loss to Dayton in front of 7,732 fans Friday at Parkview Field.

Here are the highlights.

Key at-bat: Donald Lutz began the sixth inning with a home run for the Dragons. Dayton scored six runs in the inning on just three hits.

Key out: Rico Noel was thrown out trying to stretch a double into a triple to start the fourth inning.

Streak ends: B.J. Guinn went 0 for 3, ending an 11-game hit streak.


"When a guy spins a ball up there and he's throwing changups and other off-speed pitches for strikes, most guys will go up there and start chasing pitches because they don't feel comfortable hitting with two strikes. If you trust it, you will get a pitch to hit, and when you get it, you can't foul it."
