News and notes

  • The TinCaps broke a seven-game road losing streak Wednesday with a win against a tough Bowling Green team that is among the best in the Midwest League. Fort Wayne handed the Hot Rods their first loss at home this season.
  • Parkview Field has been much kinder to the TinCaps than the road. Fort Wayne is 6-1 on its home diamond and will hope to improve on that mark in inter-divisional action tonight.
  • Fort Wayne's hitters will test their mettle against a pitcher who has reached the majors today in the form of Castillo. He was called up to throw in a struggling Cubs lineup and appeared in 13 games for Chicago.
  • The TinCaps provide a hefty challenge of their own. Fort Wayne leads the MWL in runs and is tied for the lead in home runs. It is also second in RBI.
