Keys to the game

The TinCaps couldn't figure out Mike Rayl, falling to Lake County 9-3. Rayl struck out eight TinCaps. Fort Wayne finished with 13 strikeouts in front of 8,206.

Here are the highlights.

Key at-bat: Carlos Moncrief walked with two outs in the third inning. He later scored on a triple by Alex Monsalve. The Captains scored six runs with two outs in the game (twice in the third, three times in the fifth and once in the sixth). A two-out walk led to runs three times.

Key out: Tyler Stubblefield struck out swinging to end the game. It was the 13th time a TinCap struck out Saturday.


"The guy we faced had pretty good numbers. He kept us off-balanced. At the same time we have to do a better job of just competing at at-bats, not giving away at-bats."

- TinCaps manager Shawn Wooten
