For the second straight night, the Dayton bullpen was brilliant. After Jacques Pucheu and Braxton Roxby combined for four and one-third scoreless innings on Friday, it was Jake Gozzo, Jayvien Sandridge, and Jake Gilbert on Saturday who combined for five and one-third innings without allowing a hit or a run. Gozzo (1-0) was credited with the win. He worked two and one-third, issuing one walk with two strikeouts. Dayton pitchers combined to strikeout 16 in the game while allowing just three hits.
Dragons starting pitcher Joe Boyle struck out seven in three and two-thirds innings. He allowed three hits and one run with three walks.
Martinez paced the offense, going 3 for 3 with a walk and a sacrifice fly, three runs batted in, and two runs scored. McAfee, Leyton, and Torres each collected two hits.
