Lansing Lugnuts first baseman Ryan McBroom tied a Midwest League record by notching six hits Sunday.
Despite the Toronto Blue Jays prospect’s stellar performance — which included a walk, two doubles, a home run, four runs batted in, and three runs scored — the Dayton Dragons won the game 10-9 in 13 innings.
The game, which lasted nearly four hours, saw the Lugnuts take the lead five times, only to lose it to the Dragons each time. Dayton rallied for a game-tying run in the bottom of the 9th inning, matched runs with Lansing in the 11th inning, and won by overcoming a two-run deficit in the 13th inning.
Dragons leftfielder Argenis Aldazoro had three hits, drove in three runs, and stole a base. Designated hitter Paul Kronenfeld also drove in three runs for Dayton, and reached base four times, on a single, a triple, and two walks.
McBroom leads the Midwest League with a .345 batting average. His sixth hit Sunday tied a single-game MWL record achieved many times, including by Fort Wayne TinCaps shortstop Ruddy Giron in his MWL debut earlier this season.
