News and notes

  • Fort Wayne had a season-best 15 hits in the win Friday. Every starter for the TinCaps registered at least one hit, and a four-run sixth inning swung the game in Fort Wayne's direction.
  • The TinCaps have not been below .500 yet this season and will hope to get some cushion in that regard during the Lansing series. The Lugnuts haven't won on the road since April 7.
  • Joe Ross' blank slate came to its inevitable end Friday, when he gave up two runs in a no-decision. His ERA is now at 1.23, putting Fried, today's starter, atop the ERA race among starters.
