Four in row proves elusive

As the saying goes, "You can't win 'em all."

In the case of the TinCaps, they can't win four in a row.

The good news is the TinCaps have had three chances this month to win four straight games; the not so good news is they haven't done it.

The TinCaps (12-9) will begin a three-game series against Clinton on Sunday.
