Lake County breezes past TinCaps 12-6

A slow start combined with a porous bullpen cost the TinCaps on Sunday afternoon, as they couldn’t complete a rally against Lake County in a 12-6 defeat at Parkview Field.

The TinCaps (52-66, 22-27 second half) dropped three out of four in the four-game series.

Lake County (51-67, 24-24) moved 2 1/2 games in front of Fort Wayne in the wild-card race.

Jeffery Enloe, who had gone at least five innings in each of his first seven starts, was pulled after four, and the TinCaps’ offense was held in check as Lake County led 9-1 entering the bottom of the sixth.

They broke loose in that frame for five runs on a two-run double by Nick Schulz and RBI singles by Josh VanMeter, Dustin Peterson and Fernando Perez, but it wasn’t enough to overcome a seasonlong itch.

For one reason or another, the TinCaps are 12-24 in day games, compared with 39-42 at night. And they are 4-12 in games played on a Sunday.

The TinCaps are 5-8 against Lake County with six games remaining in the season series.
