Fort Wayne (48-37) and Great Lakes (39-48) have had very different second halves. But the story between the two remained the same Saturday, as the TinCaps took down the Loons for the seventh time in eight tries.

Here's a look back at the game's standout stats.

12-4 vs. 4-11

Records for the Loons and the TinCaps, respectively, through the early part of the first half entering today's game. Great Lakes leads the Midwest League Eastern Division, while Fort Wayne was second-to-last before Saturday's match-up.


Errors by the Loons, which proved to be important: The TinCaps won 7-4 with four unearned runs to their credit.


Home runs this season for shortstop Tyler Stubblefield, both pull shots over the left field wall at Parkview Field. He hit his second in the fourth inning Saturday to give Fort Wayne a brief 3-2 lead.


Three-game winning streaks for Fort Wayne in the second half of the season. The TinCaps will try for their first such streak on Sunday at 3:05 p.m. against the Loons.
