Cougars End Dragons Winning Streak

Dayton, Ohio—The Kane County Cougars built a 9-0 lead over the first three innings and coasted to a 13-1 victory over the Dayton Dragons on Thursday night at Fifth Third Field.  The Dragons saw their seven-game winning streak come to an end as Kane County extended their own winning streak to eight straight games.
 
Dayton fell to 9-4 on the season with the loss while Kane County improved to 11-3.
 
Kane County started pitcher Daury Torrez (2-0) tossed eight strong innings for the win, allowing just two hits and one run with one walk and four strikeouts.  He retired the first 16 batters of the game and did not allow a hit until Beau Amaral’s two-out single in the sixth inning.
 
Kane County scored one run in the first inning, four in the second, four in the third, and one more in the fourth to lead 10-0.  Will Remillard, who entered the game only 2 for 19 on the season, went 4 for 5 with five runs batted in.  Jacob Rogers added three hits scored twice.  Daniel Lockhart had two hits and scored four runs.
 
Dragons starting pitcher Amir Garrett (0-2) had a rough night.  He left the game after the first six batters reached base to begin the second inning and was credited with one inning pitched, allowing eight hits and five runs with one walk and one strikeout to suffer the loss.  The Dragons team earned run average ballooned from 1.73 to 2.52 on the year as they allowed 12 earned runs on 19 hits.  Dragons relievers allowed seven earned runs after giving up only six over the first 12 games of the season.
 
The only Dayton run of the night came in the seventh inning when Sebastian Elizalde tripled to the right field corner with one out and scored on Phillip Ervin’s ground out to third.
 
The Dragons host Kane County at Fifth Third Field again on Friday at 7:05 p.m. (EDT).  Nick Travieso (1-0, 2.45) will start for Dayton against Kane County’s Juan Paniagua (0-0, 3.38). All Dragons games can be heard on WONE Radio (980 AM) and via the internet at wone.com and through the Dragons Mobile App. Cougars End Dragons Winning Streak

BREWERS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Johnny Cueto pitched seven solid innings, and the Cincinnati Reds stayed in the chase for the NL's top record by beating the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 on Tuesday night after learning they'll be without their manager for the rest of the week.

The Brewers dropped back-to-back games for the first time in more than a month, and it came at a bad time. They started the day 3 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the final NL wild card spot.

They got no break from the Reds, who clinched the NL Central title on Saturday night.

Manager Dusty Baker met players before the game and revealed he suffered a mini-stroke in addition to being treated for an irregular heartbeat last week. The 63-year-old manager hopes to return to the dugout next week.

REDS-BAKER

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Dusty Baker won't manage the Cincinnati Reds until the final series in St. Louis, giving him time to recover from an irregular heartbeat that left him hospitalized last week.

Baker met with owner Bob Castellini and his team on Tuesday before a game against the Brewers. Bench coach Chris Speier said he'll manage the final three home games against Milwaukee and three in Pittsburgh over the weekend, with Baker taking over for the last three games next week.

The 63-year-old manager was hospitalized in Chicago last Wednesday for an irregular heartbeat, a problem he's had for a while. He was in the hospital for four days, missing the Reds' 6-0 win over the Dodgers on Saturday night that clinched the NL Central title.

INDIANS-WHITE SOX

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox have lost sole possession of first place in the AL Central race, with the Indians playing spoiler. Gordon Beckham hit into a game-ending forceout with the potential tying run on second base yesterday as the Indians downed the White Sox 4-3.

Down 4-0 in the fourth inning, the White Sox closed within a run when Paul Konerko homered off Chris Perez leading off the ninth. Perez walked a pair of batters with two outs, and Beckham grounded to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who threw to second baseman Jason Kipnis for the force.

Chicago (82-72) had held sole possession of the division lead since September 3. Detroit pulled into a tie for the division lead with its win over Kansas City last night.

T25-OHIO ST-MATCHING UP

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Through four games and four victories, Ohio State's defense has faced a continual drumbeat of short passes, quick routes, screens and sweeps.

Every opponent, it seems, has relied on a sleight of hand.

Now the Buckeyes are looking forward to getting into familiar territory when they open Big Ten play.

When No. 14 Ohio State travels to 20th-ranked Michigan State on Saturday, the Buckeyes anticipate they'll run into a more conventional Midwestern attack. Granted, that means having to counteract the 244-pound blasts of the Spartans' massive Le'Veon Bell.

But after a month of chasing people, the Buckeyes think they might benefit from a change of pace from the subterfuge and rush-avoiding quick-hitters in a trade for raw man-on-man power struggles at the line of scrimmage.

T25-UPTIGHT SPARTANS

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan State's lackluster win last weekend got to coach Mark Dantonio.

After the Spartans beat Eastern Michigan 23-7 Saturday, Dantonio hurried through a terse news conference full of abrupt answers. The Michigan State coach said "next question" seven times in under a minute and was clearly annoyed with the way his team played.

On Tuesday, Dantonio spoke with reporters for around a half-hour, but Michigan State isn't making any players or assistants available this week. The Spartans' coach is trying to send a clear message to his players that it's time to get serious.
