Dragons Win Big, Jump Back into First Place
Midland, Mich.The Dayton Dragons scored seven runs in the third inning on the way to a 10-2 victory over the Great Lakes Loons on Friday night. The victory lifted the Dragons (13-7) ahead of the Loons (13-8) into first place in the Midwest League Eastern Division.

After Jeff Gelalich walked, Joe Hudson doubled past the center fielder to drive in two more runs. After Carlton Daals single, Diaz picked up his second hit of the inning, a single to right to bring in Hudson and give the Dragons a 7-0 lead.
Ervin added a two-run double in the seventh and Buckley delivered a run-scoring single in the same inning to build the lead to 10-0. The Loons scored their runs in the bottom of the seventh.
