The TinCaps put their playoff fate in their own hands Sunday by sweeping a doubleheader at Bowling Green, 3-1 and 2-1.
The TinCaps fell behind by 10 runs in the middle of the game Friday and miraculously brought the tying run to the on-deck circle with two down in the ninth inning.
Less than a week ago, after getting swept at Lake County, the TinCaps seemed to lose any momentum they had been building in their pursuit of a sixth straight playoff berth.
