Keys to the game

Cory Spangenberg hit a home run and scored three runs as Fort Wayne beat West Michigan 11-2 in front of 5,501 fans Thursday at Parkview Field.

Here are the highlights.

Key at-bat: Spangenberg's solo home run in the fifth inning gave the TinCaps a 3-2 lead. Fort Wayne led the rest of the way.

Key out(s): With the score tied at 2 in the fifth inning, Fort Wayne pitcher Dennis O'Grady struck out Steven Moya and Emmanuel Quiles threw out Hernan Perez for a double play.

Playoff push: Fort Wayne moved one game ahead of Great Lakes for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Division. The Loons lost to Dayton 5-4.


"Spangy put a pretty good swing on the ball and it seemed like it relaxed him and everybody, really, to go out and start having some more quality, sound at-bats."
