News and notes

  • The TinCaps followed up a season-high of 15 hits Friday with a new season high, and a nearly historic mark, of 21 Saturday. The bevvy of hits were the most for the organization since 2011.
  • Fort Wayne also tied for the second-most runs in its history Saturday. The most by the club was 18, and the last time the TinCaps put together that many scores was nearly a decade ago on June 24, 2003.
  • Dane Phillips was one hit away from the cycle Saturday and admitted he was thinking about it a bit once he got his homer, triple and single. Phillips had a fantastic outing overall, but still doesn't have a cycle in his career. The rare feat might be in play today against a bottom-rotation pitcher for Lansing, especially after the Lugnuts exhausted their bullpen in the last two games.
  • A win against Lansing today would give the TinCaps their first series sweep of 2013.
