TinCaps win 4th in row

The TinCaps defeated Bowling Green 12-7 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, on Wednesday to extended their winning streak to a season-high four games.

They have also won six of their last seven games.

It was the first meeting of the season between the TinCaps (23-29) and the Hot Rods (24-28) since last year’s playoffs, when Fort Wayne swept Bowling Green in two games to win the East Division semifinals.

The TinCaps erased a 7-2 deficit in the seventh inning with a 6-run rally, and they added four runs in the eighth.

Franmil Reyes’ groundball single to left field in the seventh scored Mallex Smith and Dustin Peterson to get the rally going. Jake Bauers’ three-run homer tied it at 7. After a pitching change – Colton Reavis replaced Stone Speer – Ryan Miller homered to put Fort Wayne ahead.

Bauers was 2 for 4 with four RBI.

TinCaps infielder Chase Jensen was placed on the disabled list before the game, and infielder River Stevens was brough in from extended spring training.
