MINOR Details 4/6/2012: Dragons walk-off for only win of the night

The Dragons get the logo, after a walk-off win
and the only win of the night.
After all five Cincinnati teams won on Opening Day on Thursday, Good Friday was a different story. The Reds were off, while Dayton was the only minor league team able to secure a win, and they did it in dramatic fashion at that.

Columbus 3 Louisville 2
-Brett Tomko (0-1) took the loss allowing three earned runs over five innings, though he did strike out seven. Scott Carroll, Travis Webb, and Carlos Fisher combined to hold the Clippers scoreless for the rest of the game.
-LF Daryl Jones started the game with a leadoff home run. He also walked once and scored both Bats' runs. 1B Neftali Soto was 1-4, with an RBI single in the top of the ninth, as the rally fell short.

Montgomery 9 Pensacola 3
-Curtis Partch (0-1) surrendered five runs on seven hits in just three innings for the loss. Chris Manno threw two and Drew Hayes threw one, to finish the game with three scoreless innings.
-2B Brodie Greene went 1-4 with a triple and an RBI, and C Mark Fleury had an RBI double. RF Josh Fellhauer picked up the last RBI for the Blue Wahoos.

Visalia 9 Bakersfield 3
-Chad Rogers (0-1) was saddled with the loss, after four unearned runs were allowed on a two-out throwing error by SS Billy Hamilton in the third. The Blaze had four errors in the game, as the Rawhide collected six unearned runs.
-It was an all around bad night for Hamilton as he also went 0-4 at the plate. 3B David Vidal hit 2-4, including a two-out, two-run home run in the ninth inning. He also scored twice. Only two other Blaze players, CF Bryson Smith and RF Yorman Rodriguez, got a hit on the night.

Dayton 3 West Michigan 2
-Radhames Quezada started and got a no decision after pitching four innings of one-run baseball, while allowing three walks and striking out three. Jim Moran (1-0) was the winning pitcher in the ninth. Carlos Gonzalez and James Allen threw four scoreless innings in the middle, with Allen striking out four Whitecaps in three innings.
-RF Steven Selsky was 2-4 with an RBI. SS Juan Perez hit 1-3, with an RBI in the ninth and scored the winning run. C Nick O'Shea provided the fireworks, by hitting the walk-off RBI single to center field.

*Note that in each minor league recap, there will be one player from each team in "red" as that player is being dubbed the player of the game by yours truly. We'll also try to keep tabs on prospects of note, such as Billy Hamilton, whether they play well or not. Thanks for reading!
