Last Game: Friday: Dayton 10, Lake County 3. The Dragons established season highs in runs in a game, runs in an inning (5 in the 6th) and margin of victory as they snapped a five-game losing streak. The Dragons 11-hit attack was led by Shard Munroe (3 H, 3 RBI), Jay Schuyler (3 H, 2 RBI), Pabel Manzanero (2 H, 2B, BB), and Bren Spillane (3 R, 2B, 2 BB).

Jesse Stallings made his 2019 debut (2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 SO). The game was tied 2-2 before the Dragons scored five runs in the sixth, keyed by RBI singles by Munroe and Schuyler and a 2-run single by Miguel Rodriguez.
