Fort Wayne and Great Lakes have worked slowly on a muggy evening at Parkview Field. The Loons lead the TinCaps 2-1 after three innings.
Both starters have struggled with their command. TinCaps righty Walker Weickel has thrown 67 pitches through three innings and gave up two earned runs on two hits and two walks. He also hit a batter.
Fort Wayne made Loons starter Brandon Martinez work early in his outing, as well. The TinCaps got two hits in the first inning to score their run, and Martinez has given up four hits, two walks and three strikeouts.
The 6-foot-4, 150-pound righty has thrown 49 pitches through three innings for Great Lakes.
