Keys to the game

Fort Wayne played its third extra inning contest in four nights, this time coming away with a 2-1 victory against Dayton in 10 innings.

Jake Blackwood knocked in Chris Bisson with a single to left field to end the game.

Here are the highlights.

Key at-bat: It was a little surprising to see Dayton pitch to Blackwood, Fort Wayne's best hitter. He made them pay, hit a grounder past third baseman Jefry Sierra and into left for the game-winning hit.

Key out: Dayton had a runner on third with two outs in the top of the 10th. Matt Jackson struck out Billy Hamilton to end the inning.

Extra, extra: Fort Wayne improved to 3-2 in extra inning games this year.

Quotable

"He's been the guy, I don't want to say he's carried us on his back some times, but he has. He has a great approach, knows what he's doing and it's fun to watch him go out and get hits."

- TinCaps manager Shawn Wooten on Blackwood
