Keys to the game

Jake Blackwood knocked in Chris Bisson with a double to center, giving the TinCaps a 5-4 victory against Bowling Green in 10 innings Tuesday.

The TinCaps improved to 2-1 in extra-inning games.

Here are the highlights.

Key at-bat(s): Blackwood's is the obvious answer. His two-out double capped a series of comebacks for Fort Wayne. Emmanuel Quiles' two-out, two-strike single to left in the ninth inning scored Luis Domoromo to tie the game at 4.

Key out: Andrew Werner struggled in the first, giving up two runs (one earned). But he picked Derek Dietrich off at first to end the inning. Werner settled in, giving up three runs (two earned) in seven innings.

Using his speed: Fort Wayne's Rymer Liriano stood at second with one out in the fourth inning. Blackwood struck out on a pitch in the dirt. As catcher Luke Bailey threw to first to retire Blackwood, Liriano kept running and scored from second on the play to tie the game at 2.

Local connection: Kevin Kiermaier, a Bishop Luers graduate, went 1 for 4 for Bowling Green. The center fielder also threw out a runner at the plate in the eighth inning. We'll have a story on Kiermaier in Thursday's Journal Gazette.

Quotable:

"He's been our best RBI guy and our best hitter overall so far early in the season."
