Dayton's Siri going for solo MWL record

GREG JONES | The Journal Gazette

Dayton's Jose Siri is going for Midwest League history at 7 p.m. today when the Dragons play the TinCaps at Parkview Field.

The outfielder will be trying to add to his 35-game hitting streak, which would be a record for the league. The longest hitting streak in minor league baseball this season also has tied the MWL record, set by Tony Toups of the Waterloo Indians in 1977. 

The TinCaps (49-57, 23-13 second half) are sending right-hander Michel Baez (3-0, 1.29 ERA) up against righty Andrew Jordan (5-6, 4.64) for the Dragons (54-52, 23-13). 

No moves

The TinCaps' parent club, the San Diego Padres, were not involved in any moves today, the final day of the non-waiver trade deadline in Major League Baseball.
