TinCaps' Liriano strikes at right time

When is a "walk off" not a walk off? When everybody's got to run like crazy.

Rymer Liriano's one-out sacrifice fly to medium-depth right field was enough to drive home Cory Spangenberg from third base with the winning run in the TinCaps' 4-3 victory over Bowling Green on Friday at Parkview Field.

And when the run came home, the TinCaps players poured from their first base dugout and hopped on Liriano, who was 0 for 4 but provided the biggest contact when necessary.

The stars of the show were Spangenberg, the No. 2 hitter, and leadoff hitter Rico Noel. Between them, they reached base eight of 10 times, scored two runs, had five hits and three walks.

Not to be forgotten was starting pitcher Keyvius Sampson, who was lights out.

In five innings, he gave up two hits, walked one and struck out seven. But because of pitch counts, he was taken out with a 3-0 lead - a lead that was erased when Bowling Green scored three times in the seventh.

The TinCaps open a three-game series at Lansing today.
