TinCaps drops Dragons, ends 3 game slide | Sports


Brandon Valenzuela had three runs, Ryan Bergert notched his second straight win and the TinCaps snapped a three-game losing streak with a 7-3 win over the Dayton Dragons at Day Air Ballpark on Saturday night.

The TinCaps (37-52, 10-13 in the second half) took the lead in the second inning with a two-run homer from Lucas Dunn, his seventh of the season and fourth with the TinCaps. His four home runs with Fort Wayne are on the road and Saturday’s outburst was his first since June 15.

In the fourth, TinCaps left fielder Corey Rosier singled, stole second and third, and scored his league-leading 65th run on a pitch error on the third-robber to make it 3- 0.

Valenzuela added a two-run single in the fifth and added another RBI single in the ninth to send the TinCaps to a four-run lead. Robert Hassell III, the No. 2 hitter in the Midwest League with .314, scored a run and walked.

The Dragons brought the tying run home in the ninth, but Seth Mayberry retired the team, extending their scoreless innings streak to 121/3.

Bergert (2-6) pitched 51/3 innings, allowed two runs and struck out seven.
