Having already surpassed the franchise record for career games managed (412) set by Eddie Rodriguez (1987-89) of the Quad Cities Angels, River Bandits manager Steve Dillard is now on the verge of breaking the franchise record for career wins (210) established by Jeff Carter (2001-03) of the Quad City River Bandits. Dillard enters play Sunday with a 210-260 career record through 470 ballgames, leaving him just one win away from sole possession of the franchise's all-time wins record. The baseball veteran spent the 1993-94 seasons managing the Astros-affiliated Quad City River Bandits before his long baseball career brought him back to Davenport as a hitting coach for the Swing of the Quad Cities in 2006 and then as the manager for the Quad Cities River Bandits since 2008.
Steve Dillard On the Brink of History
Brett Zawacki tossed a gem in the night cap, allowing just two hits over six innings and setting down 16 of the last 17 batters he faced. Jose Garcia delivered the big hit with a tiebreaking two-run triple in the fourth in which he came around to score on an error, while Jon Edwards added a scoreboard-clearing solo homer in the sixth. The game-two win snapped an eight-game losing streak for Quad Cities, as Bobby Lanigan's six shutout innings led Beloit to a 6-0 win in the opener.
