Verbitsky went five innings and gave up two runs on five hits with six strikeouts.

Justin Livengood faced eight batters and four scored. He took the loss.

Victor Arano earned his second win of the season, going five innings and giving up three runs on four hits with six strikeouts.

The TinCaps (9-14) had only two hits the rest of the way.
