TinCaps pound Dayton, win 4th in last 6

FORT WAYNE – Adolfo Reina hit a two-run homer and Erik Cabrera earned his third win as the TinCaps pounded Dayton 9-4 on Wednesday afternoon at Parkview Field.

The TinCaps (34-41) can complete a three-game sweep of Dayton (37-37) on Thursday. The TinCaps are 6-2 in the season series and have won four of six since the All-Star break.

Jake Bauers, who had a two-run single in the third, went 3 for 5 to lead a dominant offense. Cabrera (3-5) went five innings and gave up three earned runs on nine hits.

Every TinCaps starter reached base safely and the team compiled 14 hits after racking up 18 in Tuesday night’s 10-9 victory.

Dayton got an RBI triple from Jon Matthews and then scored on a wild pitch by Cabrera to take a 2-0 lead in the second.

The Dragons managed only one other rally in the fourth. After Avain Rachal’s RBI single, they took a 4-2 lead on catcher Ryan Miller’s throwing error.

In the bottom half, the TinCaps tied it on Henry Charles’ RBI single and a sacrifice fly by Ronnie Richardson.
