The TinCaps dropped both games of doubleheader Thursday night, losing 6-3 and 6-4 in seven-inning games to extend their losing streak against the Lake County Captains to five.

In the first game at Eastlake, Ohio, the TinCaps fared well against a major-league pitcher Zach McAllister, who was on a rehabilitation assignment after injuring his back with the Cleveland Indians.

He gave up nine hits and three runs, while striking out four and walking one, in 4 1/3 innings of work.

He left with the Captains leading 4-3, then Caleb Hamrick finished the game and got the victory by allowing one hit over 2 2/3 innings.

McAllister is 3-4 with a 5.89 ERA with Cleveland this season.

Dustin Peterson was 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI for the TinCaps.

Lake County’s Claudio Bautista was 3 for 4 with two runs and a double.

Fort Wayne starting pitcher Adrian De Horta dropped to 0-2.

He gave up six hits and four runs, while striking out four and walking three over 2 2/3 innings.

Fort Wayne went up 2-0 in the second on RBI singles by Henry Charles and Josh VanMeter.

But the Captains answered with four runs in the third, including a Dorssys Paulino double that brought in two runs.

In the second game, a 4-run tie was broken in the fifth when wild pitches by Erik Cabrera advanced Clint Frazier to third base and then home. Paulino’s RBI triple in the sixth cemented the victory for Lake County (22-38), which is 5-3 against Fort Wayne (26-33) this season.

VanMeter and Luis Tejada were 2 for 3 in the second game, and teammate Jake Bauers had a home run.

The Captains’ Paulino was 2 for 3 with a run.

Cabrera took the loss, going five innings and allowing six hits and five runs, three earned.

Cabrera struck out two and walked one.

Lake County starter Mitch Brown went four innings and allowed six hits and four runs, while striking out six and walking two.

His replacement, Matt Whitehouse, got the victory by allowing two hits and striking out five, while walking three, over three innings.

The TinCaps were the last of the Midwest League’s 16 teams to play in a doubleheader, which was necessitated by inclement weather that postponed a game Wednesday.
