Mark Hardy gave up one earned run in seven innings, pitching the TinCaps to a 5-4 victory against West Michigan in front of 4,149 fans Tuesday at Parkview Field.

Here are the highlights.

Key at-bat: Rymer Liriano had a two-out, two-run single in the fourth inning to give the TinCaps a 4-2 lead. Liriano went 3 for 4 with the two RBI.

Key out(s): Jeff Ibarra entered with a runner on second and the score 5-4. He got a strike out, ground out and another strike out to end the inning with the TinCaps still ahead.
