Loons win again

Sunday would be another day, TinCaps manager Michael Collins promised early Saturday evening, and if that was stating the obvious it also turned out to be prophecy.

The 13-spot Great Lakes strapped on the TinCaps in a nine-run thumping Saturday, for instance?

That became a 10-spot on Sunday.

Other than that it was same avalanche, different day for the TinCaps (1-3), who this time imploded in the third and fourth innings in a 10-5 loss. Great Lakes (3-1) followed a four-hit, three-run third with a six-hit, seven-run fourth, chasing TinCaps starter Jimmi Brasoban while roughing up long reliever Tony Rizzotti in the process.

That gave the Loons a 10-0 cushion and that was enough as they tattooed the TinCaps for 12 hits, including five for extra bases.

For the Loons, Webster Rivas went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI, Brandon Trinkwon was 1-for-3 and scored two runs and Dillon Moyer had a double, a triple and two RBI as the bottom half of the Loons' order went 6-for-16, scored five runs and drove in three.

The TinCaps, meanwhile, put together five runs on 12 hits of their own and limited the Loons to two hits and four base runners after the fourth inning to at least make it interesting.
