TinCaps' bats pummel South Bend, earn series split

Six TinCaps registered multihit performances, and Jeffery Enloe was sharp on the mound in an 11-6 win over South Bend on Monday night at Parkview Field.

The TinCaps (37-56, 7-17 second half) earned a split of the four-game series entering Tuesday’s day off.

Enloe, making his third start, held the Silver Hawks down through 6 1/3 innings for his first victory.

Meanwhile, it was a breakout night for an offense that had struggled since the All-Star break.

Third baseman Fernando Perez, batting in the three-hole, led the way. He homered in the first inning and finished 3 for 5 with a two-run double.

Justin Livengood followed Enloe and let in a run with a wild pitch. Breland Almadova’s two-run double later in the seventh made it 7-5.

But the TinCaps restored their cushion in the bottom half on RBI singles by Jake Bauers and Nick Schulz. Josh VanMeter then drove home a pair to cap the scoring.

VanMeter was 3 for 4 and also had an RBI single in the TinCaps’ five-run second inning.

South Bend (56-37, 16-8) took a brief 2-1 lead in the top of that frame, getting an RBI triple from Michael Perez. The other run scored on a throwing error by Ronnie Richardson.

The sellout of 7,475 was Fort Wayne’s 14th of the season.
