Urena's RBI gives TinCaps 7-6 win in 10th

FORT WAYNE – The TinCaps played extra innings for the sixth time this season and walked off in the 10th on Jose Carlos Urena's bases-loaded grounder.

Franmil Reyes, who hit his fourth home run in the fourth, tripled to right-center leading off and scored the winning run on Urena's slow roller to shortstop.

The TinCaps (10-14) stopped a slide in which they had lost six of eight. They face Great Lakes (14-11) again Wednesday and Thursday.

Great Lakes tied it on a two-out RBI single by Kyle Farmer in the ninth. Nick Mutz blew the save after Franchy Cordero's two-base throwing error opened the inning.

Ronnie Richardson blooped a one-out single in the bottom of the frame but was thrown out stealing second base.

TinCaps starter Payton Baskette went 4 2/3 innings and allowed four runs, with a fifth coming around on Cordero's first error. The relief pitching, aside from Mutz, was very strong, with four relievers allowing only Farmer's clutch hit.

The TinCaps scored four runs with two outs in the fourth. Back-to-back RBI singles by Dane Phillips and Jake Bauers were followed by Cordero's two-run single that made it 5-2.

Great Lakes tied it in the next inning on two sacrifice flies and Cordero's run-scoring error.

TinCaps third baseman Dustin Peterson had an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth.

The TinCaps survived five errors, two wild pitches and a balk. They had 12 hits.
