2019 Season Series between Dayton and Beloit: Dragons 2, Beloit 0. Dayton Record on current homestand: 4-4.
Last Game: Sunday: Dayton 8, Beloit 6. The Dragons trailed 5-0 after one-half inning before rallying to take the lead by the bottom of the sixth. The big hit was a two-out, two-run triple by Pabel Manzanero that closed out the scoring for the day. Dragons relievers Ryan Campbell and Clate Schmidt combined to work the final four innings, allowing just one hit and no runs. Manzanero had three hits and four RBI to lead a 13-hit Dayton attack. The win marked the first time since July 28, 2018 that the Dragons overcame a deficit of at least five runs to win.
The Dragons have a 10-game winning streak this season (June 2-12). A win today would give them three straight wins and their second winning streak of more than two games.
