Lake County 8 – Dayton 3

The Dragons committed 5 errors!  It doesn’t matter what level you are playing at, you aren’t going to win too many games committing that many errors. Didi Gregorius did go 2-4 at the plate, but also committed 2 errors in the field, giving him 7 on the year at shortstop.  Josh Garton went 2-4 was well and hit his first homerun of the season.
