Today's Game: The Dayton Dragons (affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds) meet the Burlington Bees (affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels) in the last game of a three-game series.

Streaks: The Dragons have lost two straight games after winning four of the previous six. 

 

Last Game: Friday: Burlington 9, Dayton 4. The Bees battled back from a 4-1 deficit after one inning to score eight unanswered runs and win their second straight game in the series. In a baseball oddity, the first batter of the game for both teams hit a lead-off home run in the first inning. Jordyn Adams hit the second pitch of the game for a homer for Burlington, and Shard Munroe hit one to lead off the bottom of the first for Dayton. Miguel Hernandez led a six-hit Dayton attack with a triple, double, and three RBI.
