News and notes

  • Fort Wayne strung together 45 hits in a series sweep of Lansing and is on a three-game winning streak. Bowling Green is on a hot run of its own, with eight wins in its last 10 games.
  • The TinCaps will have a tough time keeping their offense going against Guerrieri. He is one of the best prospects in the Tampa Bay Rays system and hasn't given up an earned run in seven innings. Eflin, meanwhile, will look to earn his first win for Fort Wayne. He has given up six runs in two starts for the TinCaps.
  • A win today would snap a five-game losing streak for Fort Wayne on the road. After a 3-0 start away from Parkview Field, the TinCaps have slipped to 3-5 in tough series against West Michigan and South Bend, as well as a series finale loss to Great Lakes.
