An RBI double from backup catcher Adolfo Reina made it 3-0 before Dayton scored twice in the fifth.

Both runs were charged to Adrian De Horta, who left with the bases loaded and none out.

The Dragons (20-14) had nearly as many errors (two) as hits (three).

Ronnie Richardson had an RBI triple in the seventh and came home on a sacrifice fly by Mallex Smith.

Amir Garrett (0-3) allowed three runs on six hits in five innings.
