TinCaps lose to Great Lakes

Seven was no lucky number Tuesday for the TinCaps.

They were cruising along with a five-run lead over Great Lakes until the seventh, when the Loons dropped, yes, a seven-spot on them. And that was that as the TinCaps (7-10) never scored again and the Loons (12-6) went on to an 11-8 victory at Dow Diamond in Midland, Mich.

A three-run fourth and two runs each in the sixth and seventh had the TinCaps in front 8-3, and then the wheels didn’t so much come off as exploded.

Jesmuel Valentin greeted reliever Genison Reyes with a single to short to lead things off, and a wild pitch, two walks, four singles, a two-run triple and a pitching change later, the Loons had hung up seven runs and led 10-8.

The TinCaps went quietly after that, going down 1-2-3 in the eighth and ninth. Erik Cabrera, who relieved Reyes with one out in the seventh, took the loss.

At the plate, Dane Phillips went 3 for 5 and Henry Charles 3 for 4 to lead a 13-hit TinCaps attack.

In other news, righthanded pitcher Adrian De Horta was reinstated from the disabled list and righty Cory Bostjancic was placed on the disabled list.

De Horta, 19, had been on the disabled list since April 15th and is 0-0 with a 4.91 ERA in three appearances. Bostjancic, 21, has a 1-0 record with a 7.04 ERA..
