TinCaps 4, Great Lakes 3

Bolanos, Tatis lead TinCaps over Great Lakes


MIDLAND, Mich. – Ronald Bolanos tossed a two-hit complete game and Fernando Tatis homered and had two hits, driving in two, as the TinCaps topped the Great Lakes Loons 4-3 in a rain-shortened Sunday.

Great Lakes had a runner on second in the bottom of the sixth, but Cody Thomas flew out to end the game.

The TinCaps are now 20-7 over their last 27. Since June 7, Fort Wayne is 35-20 after beginning the season 19-39.

Bolanos (4-2) gave up three runs while striking out three and walking five to pick up the win.

Great Lakes tied the game 3-3 in the third after Saige Jenco scored on a balk and Jeren Kendall scored on a groundout.

The TinCaps took the lead in the fifth inning when Tatis hit a solo home run.

Chris Mathewson (3-3) went six innings, allowing four runs and six hits while striking out nine.

Note: Before the game, right-hander Dalton Erb was transferred from the Arizona League Padres to the TinCaps while right-hander Jim McDade was transferred from Fort Wayne to the Short-Season A Tri-City Dust Devils.
