Dyer hits two-run blast in 6-2 loss

From Union City Greyhouds
Pitcher Michael Wills picks up the win for the Greyhounds against the Marion Bobcats going the distance with eight strikeouts and allowing only two earned runs off nine hits.
Bobcats third baseman Rob Dyer took advantage of one of Will's few mistakes hitting a two-run blast in the seventh after coming in for starting third baseman Andrew Harris who left after colliding with Greyhounds catcher Josh Jones at a play at the plate. The homer was Dyer's second the season.
The Greyhounds had a big third inning that started with Justin Guidry scoring off of a balk by Bobcat pitcher Trey Smith, who took the loss. Andrew Edge followed with a solo home run which was the start of a four batter hit streak involving singles by Josh Jones and Jon Ivie and a two-bagger by Keith DePew.
For Marion, outfielder Daniel Pugh went 3-for-4 and shortstop Drew Barrett added two more hits.
Reliever Justin O'Brien also struck out eight in 3 2/3 innings.
