Keys to the game

The second half of the season got off to a rough start for the TinCaps, as Lake County topped Fort Wayne 7-3 Friday at Parkview Field.

The Captains collected 18 hits in front of 7,011 fans.

Here are the highlights.

Key at-bat: LeVon Washington doubled home Ronny Rodriguez in the third inning to give the Captains a 3-2 lead. Lake County led the rest of the way.

Key out(s): Lake County catcher Alex Monsalve threw out B.J. Guinn twice on steal attempts (in the second and fifth innings).


"I'm supposed to be a strike-one guy, but I kept falling behind, they kept getting in hitter's counts and getting a good piece of the ball and putting it in play."
