Jeimer Candelario doubled home Dan Vogelbach in the bottom of the first to put the Cougars (14-14) on the board, but the Dragons continued their assault in the third by scoring on a throwing error, followed by a three-run homer and an RBI double.

Jeff Antigua replaced Castillo in the fifth as Dayton pulled scored three more runs to build an 11-1 advantage. The Cougars didn't go down quietly as they picked up three of their own in the bottom of the fifth with Dan Vogelbach doubling home a pair. Sal Romano (3-2) was taken out after five frames as he gave up four runs on six hits.

Joey Housey replaced Romano and walked Pin-Chieh Chen with the bases loaded in the sixth. Alejandro Chacin surrendered three in the bottom of the ninth before Sean Lucas (S, 3) entered the contest and fanned Marco Hernandez with two men on to finish the ballgame.
