TinCaps lose 5th straight

Fort Wayne continued a season-worst losing streak with a 5-3 loss to Bowling Green on Saturday at Bowling Green Ballpark in Kentucky. The TinCaps have lost five straight.

The TinCaps (25-22) are 2-8 in their last 10 games and moved two games behind the Hot Rods (29-19), who are in second in the Midwest League Eastern Division standings.

TinCaps starter Walker Wieckel picked up his third loss of the season and is still without a win on the year. He went five innings and gave up three runs.

His batting order couldn't do much to support him.

A leadoff home run from center fielder Mallex Smith put the TinCaps ahead in the first, but Bowling Green stifled Fort Wayne for much of the game. The TinCaps added another run in the fifth and got a two-out homer from Stephen Carmon in the ninth, but the rally fell short.

Fort Wayne reliever Chris Nunn gave up two runs in an eighth-inning appearance that proved decisive.

The TinCaps will try to break their losing streak Sunday in a 3:05 p.m. game against the Hot Rods.
