TinCaps in command

Alonzo Gonzalez' evening didn't quite go the way he must have envisioned.

The Lansing reliever came on for starter Taylor Cole in the sixth with the Lugnuts leading 3-2, and limped off 2/3 of an inning later thoroughly flamed. The TinCaps lit him up for four hits and four runs -- two of them on Gabriel Quintana's two-out, bases-loaded single -- and exited the sixth with a 6-3 lead.

Ten TinCaps went to the plate in the frame, and besides the four hits Gonzalez hit a batter and walked two more.
