News and notes
- With a bad weather front sweeping through Indiana today, there's a chance the TinCaps will have another rough go of it tonight. South Bend's forecast has a 90 percent chance of precipitation as well as thunder and lightning. The team is monitoring the situation at the moment.
- If any pitcher in the Fort Wayne starting rotation can help break up this bad streak for the TinCaps, it's Ross. The righty has had a phenomenal start to the season, allowing only two hits in 10 innings of work.
- The relief staff will have to be much improved in order to sustain any kind of lead the TinCaps might put together with Ross on the mound. In both of the games against the Silver Hawks, Fort Wayne has surrendered the decisive run in the bottom of the eighth inning.
