Dayan "Dayum" Diaz pitched 1.1 scoreless with 3 strikeouts, and Hernan Iribarren pitched another inning with a clean frame. He was also throwing 40 MPH knuckleballs, I guess. Hernan The Barbarian also went 2 for 4. The lone run was scored on a solo dinger by Carlos Truinfel who also hit a double in 4 at bats.
Wandy Peralta started and pitched 4 innings of shutout baseball with 3 hits, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Drew Hayes struck out 3 in two scoreless, and Matt Magill pitched 2 scoreless with a walk and 2 strikeouts. JJ Hoover picked up his 4th save by striking out the side in the 9th. Kyle "Wallflower" Waldrop was 2 for 4 with 2 doubles. Juan Perez was 2 for 3 with a RBI and a walk. Ray "Cheech And" Chang was 3 for 4 with 2 doubles and a RBI.

Austin "Orwellian" Orewiler got trounced in this game. He gave up 8 runs (5 earned) over 4.2 innings. He gave up 10 hits, 2 walks, and struck out 3. Sandy "Beaches" Lugo pitched 2 scoreless with 3 strikeouts. Nick "Sensational" Senzel was 2 for 3 with a double and 2 walks. That OBP is going way up. Brantley Bell was 3 for 4 with a double, 2 RBI, and a walk. Daniel Sweet continued his great season with 2 walks. Mitch "Panic!" Piatnik was 2 for 4 with a double.
Dayton has a double header as well. The first game is scheduled for 6:00 PM EST which sounds unrealistic if they're gonna play two. Jesus Reyes will start Game 1, and Ty Boyles is on the mound for Game 2.
