Homer-happy TinCaps silence Loons

Fernando Perez hit two of the TinCaps' four home runs and Kyle Lloyd pitched a gem as Fort Wayne crushed Great Lakes 10-0 on Wednesday night at Parkview Field to win two out of three games in the series.

The TinCaps (56-71, 26-32) pulled within a game of the Loons (61-67, 27-31) in the Eastern Division playoff race.

Lloyd (6-4) gave up none hit and struck out six, while counterpart Brandon Martinez (1-8) gave up seven runs on six hits in 5 1/3 innings. Lloyd faced two batters above the minimum and issued one walk.

The TinCaps jumped ahead in the first inning on a three-run bomb by Franmil Reyes, his 11th, and got a solo shot from Henry Charles in the second.

The power display continued with Perez's leadoff shot in the third, and he capped the scoring with a two-run blast in the sixth. Perez's night pushed his team-leading total to 14.

Rey Bruguera's sacrifice fly was followed by a two-run double from Trea Turner in the sixth to make it 8-0.

Great Lakes finished with two hits and a walk and never advanced a runner to second base.
