TinCaps romp

Meteorology didn't decide it this time, one night after Christmas Hijacks April. Simple mathematics did.

Simple math, as in four plus two plus three equals, eventually, a robust evening Tuesday for a TinCaps club that needed one.

After a freak snowstorm Monday blanketed Parkview Field and ended things prematurely, the TinCaps blanketed the Burlington Bees 13-3 in front of 1,708 fans on another frigid evening at Parkiew Field.

A four-run second in which the TinCaps (4-7) sent eight batters to the plate dropped the Bees (6-5) in their wake, and the home nine added two runs in the third, three more in the fourth and four more in the sixth. All told they punished five Burlington pitchers for 11 hits, including six for extra bases.

Franmill Reyes was the biggest stick for the TinCaps, going 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and three runs scored. Fernando Perez went 2-for-3 with a homer and five RBI.
