TinCaps routed at Lansing

Going for their second series victory of the season, the TinCaps bullpen imploded in a 12-5 loss to the Lansing Lugnuts at Cooley Law School Stadium.

The game was tied 2-2 after three innings, but the TinCaps bullpen gave up six runs in three innings.

Fort Wayne (13-19) starter Coby Cowgill (2-1) fell victim to four errors, as he gave up six runs -- four earned -- and seven hits in five innings. Lansing (16-16) pounced for two runs in the second and four in the fourth.

The TinCaps tied the score at 2 in the top of the third, getting back-to-back RBI singles from Fernando Perez and Franmil Reyes, both hitting to left against Lugnuts starter Matt Dermody (1-0). The southpaw out of the University of Iowa gave up only those two runs in his 5 2/3 innings.

In the bottom of the fifth the Lugnuts scored four times, knocking Cowgill from the game. Wednesday marked the first time in four Cowgill starts that the TinCaps did not earn a win.

Fort Wayne’s bullpen fared no better, as Genison Reyes gave up two runs, and Bryan Verbitsky gave up four runs in the eighth.

Fort Wayne travels next to Dayton, Ohio, to open a three-game series starting at 7 p.m. Thursday with the second-place Dayton Dragons.

Walker Weickel is schduled to start for for Fort Wayne and Ismael Guillon for the Dragons.
