Pen provides relief

Hayden Beard pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings of relief to earn the victory in Fort Wayne's 10-6 win against South Bend on Monday.

Beard recorded the final out of the fourth in relief of Pedro Hernandez. Beard hit a batter with two outs in the fifth, but got the next batter to ground into a force out to end the inning.

"He came out and got the out we needed and had a solid second inning of work as well," TinCaps manager Jose Flores said.
