TinCaps drop 3rd in a row

The TinCaps fell 4-2 to the South Bend Silver Hawks at Four Winds Field on Saturday in South Bend, pushing their losing streak to three for a fourth time this season.

The TinCaps (17-24) didn’t lead for long as the Silver Hawks (24-17) capitalized on a throwing error and scored in the bottom of the first to tie it at 1. Another run in the third, a home run in the fourth and two errors in the fifth gave South Bend a 4-1 lead lead that Fort Wayne couldn’t overcome as it finished with four errors.
