A 7th inning that featured, all with the bases loaded, an error and 3 walks was enough to doom Dayton last night. Joe “Oozin’” Boyle started and threw 4 innings. Outside of his 4 walks, he otherwise pitched pretty well. He allowed no hits or runs in those 4 innings while striking out 7. There wasn’t much to do on offense. Elly De La Cruz went 1 for 4 with a stolen base and scored a run and Mat “Full” Nelson went 2 for 3.
