TinCaps sweep Lansing

The TinCaps managed to put together some solid defense in the final three innings to shut the door on Lansing and earn a series sweep with a 7-5 win.

Fort Wayne (9-6) got its first sweep of the season, and its first since July of last season, with a topsy-turvy finale against the Lugnuts (4-9).

The TinCaps were undaunted by five-run sixth from Lansing that tied the game at 5 and put together two runs in a decisive bottom half.

Fort Wayne reliever Leonel Campos and closer Roman Madrid finished the game.

Fort Wayne heads to Bowling Green on Monday to play the Hot Rods (12-4). First pitch is scheduled for 8:05 p.m.
