TinCaps avoid being swept

The TinCaps avoided being swept in a four-game road series for the first time in five years with a 2-1, 11-inning victory over Great Lakes at Dow Diamond in Midland, Mich.

Former Norwell standout Josh VanMeter scored the winning run in the 11th as Loons catcher Kyle Farmer couldn't handle a pitch with the bases loaded.

TinCaps reliever Nick Mutz gave up a triple to Webster Rivas to start the bottom of the inning before inducing two groundouts and a flyout to end the game.

The TinCaps (8-11) scored in the first as Mallex Smith reached on a walk, stole second, moved to third on a VanMeter groundout and came home when Dustin Peterson grounded out. The Loons (13-7) run came in the third off a double by Kyle Farmer.

The last time the TinCaps were swept in a four-game road series was at Dow Diamond from May 12-15, 2009. Fort Wayne went on to win the Midwest League championship that season.
