News and notes
- Fort Wayne posted an impressive shutout win Wednesday to bounce back from a loss to start the series against Bowling Green. You can read about the game here, look at our notebook here and see video interviews with manager Jose Valentin, starting pitcher Max Fried and left fielder Jeremy Baltz.
- A win today would tie the TinCaps with the Hot Rods in the Midwest League Eastern Division standings. Fort Wayne would also be able to even its season record against Bowling Green after dropping two of three in Kentucky earlier this year.
- Hancock's last start was his best. The right-hander went seven innings with no runs and four strikeouts in a 6-2 win against Great Lakes on May 10. He will look to replicate that performance today and keep a string of strong outings for TinCaps starters alive.
