The TinCaps lowered their magic number to two thanks to a 6-4 victory against Great Lakes and Lansing's 10-6 loss to West Michigan Thursday. Any combination of TinCaps wins and Lansing losses equaling or exceeding two over the final 11 games clinches a playoff spot. The number also includes Fort Wayne's tie-breaker edge over Lansing (15-6 in head-to-head meetings). Fort Wayne could wrap up a playoff spot Friday if it wins and Lansing loses.
