TinCaps handed 1st loss of season by Loons

– After a start to the Midwest League season that saw them win their first three games, the TinCaps finally lost Sunday.

Great Lakes erased a one-run deficit to take an 8-3 victory over the TinCaps (3-1) in the final meeting of the four-game series in Midland, Mich.

Starting TinCaps pitcher Zach Eflin, who turns 19 today, allowed four runs in the first three innings to get the loss.

Fort Wayne grabbed a 1-0 lead in the top of the second inning when Alberth Martinez reached on and error and scored on Stephen Carmon’s double.

But the Loons (1-3) scored three times – two runs which were unearned – in the bottom of the second and took a 4-1 lead in the third.

The TinCaps got a run back in the top of the sixth, but Great Lakes answered with three runs in the bottom of the inning to jump its lead to 7-2.

The TinCaps open a three-game series at West Michigan today.
