TinCaps complete sweep of Lake County in rain-shortened win

FORT WAYNE -- The TinCaps overcame a wild start by Coby Cowgill and took advantage of mistakes on their way to an 8-6 win over Lake County in a game cut short by rain.

The eighth inning had just finished when the tarp was pulled on the field due to the rain picking up. It was called after a 31-minute delay.

Fort Wayne (17-21) completed the three-game sweep despite Cowgill walking six and giving up four runs in two innings.

Tayron Guerrero pitched two scoreless innings after Justin Livengood (3-1) had allowed a run in his two innings of relief.

Nick Mutz retired the final two batters in the eighth and was credited with his fifth save.

Lake County (11-28) gave up two runs on a throwing error and another on a wild pitch. The Captains led 2-0 and 4-1 before Fort Wayne’s five-run third inning.

Franmil Reyes had an RBI single and Jake Bauers a two-run double for the TinCaps. Dane Phillips and Josh VanMeter each drove in a run.

Cowgill threw 61 pitches, just 30 for strikes, and allowed three hits in his shortest start of the season.
