@Dayton 6, Lake County 3: Dayton finally grabs home win after 24 straight defeats
This last part makes me....I don't know what it makes me...It was as if the Dayton Dragons finally put their collective foot down and decided 24 was enough.
“We came in today really focused on winning,” catcher Mark Fleury said.
And so the longest home losing streak in the minor leagues since at least 2005 officially ended at 9:42 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, when Doug Salinas finished striking out the side to secure the Dragons’ 6-3 win over the Lake County Captains at Fifth Third Field.
Fleury fired away his mask and charged the mound, where he and Salinas awaited the inevitable crush of teammates.
“It was like the seventh game of the World Series, if that’s what that feels like,” said outfielder Kevyn Feiner, a .160 hitter whose two-run homer in the third inning was key.
When Salinas got two strikes on Roberto Perez, the last batter, the sellout crowd of 9,012 rose as one. Some chanted, “Yes, we can! Yes, we can!”
