Dans beat Aviators

Danville walked 14 batters and committed five errors, but it was the Dans earning a 10-6 victory over the Aviators before 326 humans and 10 dogs on Bark in the Park Night at a very steamy Danville Stadium.

Actually, the outcome of Prospect League contest came down to the final out as Danville’s Jonah Ulane got Lafayette’s Anthony Sanchez to fly out to very deep right field with the bases loaded in the ninth inning. Defensive replacement Jacob Talamante basically made the catch with his back against the walk. Read the complete story at Commerical-News.com.

Dans-Rex Game Features 386 Pitches and 21 Walks

The Danville Dans claimed its second straight win over the first-place Terre Haute Rex with a 7-3 triumph before 3,194 fans.

“It was sloppy baseball, but we will take the win,’’ said Danville manager Eric Coleman, whose team improved to 7-5 with its sixth home victory of the season. “We will live and learn from it. But, I would rather be on the winning side than the losing side.’’ Just how sloppy was Tuesday’s game?

The two teams combined for 21 walks (10 by Terre Haute and 11 by Danville), and they also hit four batters during the contest. Read the complete story from Chad Dare, Commerical News. Photo by Deb Edwards.

Dans Beat Rex 4-0

“We have to protect the house,’’ Danville manager Eric Coleman said. “It’s like hockey or basketball, you have to protect your home. We have won five in a row here at home.

“Terre Haute is a good team. They beat us once earlier this year and I told the guys that we had to get them back. It’s a fun series with them and it’s now tied at 1-1.’’

A big reason for things equally out between Terre Haute (6-2) and Danville (5-3) was right-handed starter Andrew Hansen along with three relievers, who combined to pitch a four-hit shutout.

Hansen was making his debut with the Dans, as he got the win after going five innings, allowing three hits, walking three and striking out one. More
