TinCaps

  • TinCaps’ late-season collapse continues
    The TinCaps lost for the ninth time in the last 13 games, falling 8-7 to the Lake County Captains at Classic Park in Eastlake, Ohio, on Thursday night.
  • Putting it all together
    Jake Bauers lightheartedly taunted Franmil Reyes about Team USA’s win over the Dominican Republic on Wednesday in an exhibition basketball game.“We can’t win at all sports,” replied Reyes, a Dominican native.
  • Swinging, missing in rain
      Tuesday night began with a 53-minute rain delay at Parkview Field and ended with more showers, but it may take more than rain to wash away the memories of the TinCaps' 5-1 loss to Great Lakes.

TinCaps push winning streak to four

The TinCaps extended their winning streak to a season-high four games Wednesday with a 12-7 victory over the Hot Rods in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The TinCaps have 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 six-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 brought in from extended spring training.
