TinCaps’ 3-game road winning streak halted

– The TinCaps’ quest for a season-best fourth straight road win ended with a 5-1 loss to the Peoria Chiefs on Saturday at O’Brien Field in Peoria, Ill.

It was the opening of a three-game series between the TinCaps (16-11) and Chiefs (12-12).

Peoria scored two runs in the seventh to take a four-run lead. The Chiefs scored single runs in the first, second and fourth for a 3-1 lead. There was a 40-minute rain delay in the fifth inning.

The TinCaps’ Gabriel Quintana extended his hitting streak to 10 games, passing Luis Tejada for Fort Wayne’s longest streak of the season with a solo home run in the second to tie the score at 1.

Note: The TinCaps announced infielder Felix Cabrera has been transferred from Double-A San Antonio to Fort Wayne. Cabrera, 23, was on Fort Wayne’s 2013 opening day roster and played in one game, going 1 for 5 on April 6 at Great Lakes.

With San Antonio this season, he was 0 for 3, appearing in two games. Last season in 18 games with the TinCaps, Cabrera hit .209 with one home run and four runs batted in.
