Keys to the game

The TinCaps committed a season-high four errors in a 9-4 loss to Dayton Wednesday at Parkview Field.

Here are the highlights.

Key at-bat: Junior Arias hit a three-run home run in the fourth inning to give the Dragons a 4-1 lead. Dayton led the rest of the way.

Local connection: Ryan Wright, a Homestead graduate, went 1 for 4 with one RBI for Dayton. Wright was 4 for 14 with two RBI in the series.

Turning it on: Justin Miller had two hits for Fort Wayne. He went 3 for 4 on Tuesday. Miller's batting average increased 100 points in the series (from .143 to .243). He is now hitting in the No. 2 spot of the lineup.

Miscues: Three of Fort Wayne's four errors came during a four-run seventh inning for the Dragons. Fort Wayne has 20 errors this season.

Ross update: Joe Ross, the No. 25 pick in the 2011 draft, gave up five runs on six hits in five innings. He struck out three and walked two.


"When you're not scoring any runs, when you're not hitting, you can not afford to give runs away."
