Keys to the game

Great Lakes connected on three home runs in a 6-4 victory against Fort Wayne in front of 6,389 fans Sunday at Parkview Field. The Loons won despite collecting just four hits.

Here are the highlights.

Key at-bat: Jon Garcia hit a two-run home run off of Robert Lara in the eighth inning to give the Loons a 5-3 lead.

Key out(s): B.J. Guinn tried to break up a ninth-inning double play at second base. Field umpire John Silva ruled Guinn went too far out of the base path with his slide and called Guinn and the batter, Rico Noel, out to end the game.


"We still played well enough to win the game. But give credit to them, they put some good swings on pitches that were up and they made the most of their hits."

- TinCaps manager Shawn Wooten
