LumberKings let one get away vs. Dayton

DAYTON, Ohio — For eight innings, the Clinton LumberKings were on their way to ending a three-game losing streak, as their pitchers mowed down Dayton’s batters.

But the Dragons finally struck in the ninth inning, tying the game, then they handed the LumberKings their fourth consecutive loss when they scored with one out in the 11th inning for a 3-2 victory in Midwest League baseball Wednesday night at Fifth Third Field. The victory was the Dragons’ seventh in a row and completed a three-game series sweep.

Things started off well for Clinton, as Eddie Campbell continued his impressive run to begin the season. Campbell, who has gone 14 1/3 innings without giving up a run, had a no-hitter going into the sixth inning. He wound up with a no-decision despite allowing only one hit while striking out four in six shutout innings.

Dragons starting pitcher Ismael Guillon (1-0) nearly matched Campbell in the battle of left-handers. Guillon, who also didn’t factor in the decision, allowed one run on two hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Clinton got on the board in the fifth inning. After Austin Wilson and Tyler O’Neill reached to begin the inning, Joe DeCarlo’s sacrifice bunt put runners on second and third. But on the move to third base, Wilson came up limping, and had to be removed from the game — he is day-to-day. Arby Fields replaced Wilson and scored on a single by Jeff Zimmerman.

Clinton struck again in the seventh, this time off Ryan Kemp. After DeCarlo was hit by a pitch and Martin Peguero singled, Lonnie Kauppila made it 2-0 with an RBI single.

Leoncio Munoz, who took over for Campbell to begin the seventh, cruised through two innings, as he retired the side in order in both the seventh and the eighth. But things fell apart when he began the ninth. A leadoff single by Sammy Diaz preceded a walk to Carlton Daal. Beau Amaral, who had three hits in each of the first two games of the series, executed the sacrifice bunt to perfection. Jeff Gelalich followed with a two-run single that tied the game at 2. Munoz gave way to Rafael Pineda, who worked out of a bases loaded jam to get the game to extras.
