News and notes

  • Fort Wayne suffered its first sweep of the season in a three-game road tilt against Peoria. However, the TinCaps might expect some better luck against the Loons. They started the season with three wins against Great Lakes before dropping the final game of a four-game road series.
  • The TinCaps' offense was muted by Peoria, which held Fort Wayne to two runs in three games. The three-straight losses tied a season high, and a loss today would be Fort Wayne's first four-game losing streak of the season.
