Boyles then left the game after 89 pitches and just five base runners allowed. He struck out two of three in the first, third, and fourth innings. Coming into the game, Boyles struggled with both command and contact. Neither was an issue before the comebacker.

Chris Okey picked up a triple in the game, his first of the season. He extended his six game hit streak, and has two hits in four of those games.

Alberti Chavez added a double in his second game with Dayton after homering in his first.
