Live from Dayton…

Hey, everyone,  it’s  Jonathan. I have to admit I’m quite happy that I’m in the pressbox and they are playing out there…kudos to multimedia producer Joe Cronin for battling the elements to shoot video while we’re here. First pitch was 7:09 with temps sitting at 35 (windchill at 27). Reds second-rounder Starter Sean Watson gave up a run in the first, but it’s been zeroes since then. Drew Stubbs was showing his plus speed in the first inning. He hit a slow grounder to short and turned it into an infield single — Dayton fans should get used to that. He then stole second. He had the chance to tie the game or give the Dragons a lead in the second, but struck out with the bases loaded to end the threat against West Michigan starter Chris Cody. For the Whitecaps, Scott Sizemore had a double in that first inning and Brennan Boesch — both were NY-Penn League All-Stars last year for Oneonta — drove in leadoff hitter Diek Scram with a sac fly. At this rate, the game will end sometime in mid-May.  More later, but use this as a lead-in to Lisa’s Midwest League report. —  Jonathan
