Jason Hagerty took a lead off of third. Nate Freiman did the same thing at second.
The TinCaps trailed by a run in the fourth inning of Friday's decisive Game 3 against Great Lakes. But they had the two runners in scoring position with no outs.
Loons pitcher Matt Magill got Edinson Rincon to strike out swinging on a curveball. Daniel Meeley also went down swinging on a ball in the dirt. Jedd Gyorko, the last hope, struck out swinging and tapped his bat with his right fist as he walked back to the dugout.
The TinCaps went 2 for 11 with runners in scoring position in a 6-4 loss to the Loons.
"Playoff baseball is timely hitting. They just had a couple more key hits than we did. That was it," said shortstop Dean Anna.
