Zach Kometani hit a three-run home run for the TinCaps in a 4-1 win against Dayton Tuesday. The win snaps a four-game losing streak.
Here are the highlights.
Key hit: Kometani hit a 1-0 pitch over the left-field wall for a three-run home run in the fourth inning.
Nice outing cut short: Fort Wayne starter Adys Portillo struck out nine and did not allow a run. He left the game leading 3-0, but he didn't factor in the decision because he had to leave after suffering a cramp in his right calf with two outs in the fifth inning. Portillo displayed an overpowering fastball and lowered his ERA to 0.59.
"I've got a lot of confidence now. I just have to keep throwing. With everything I learned last season, this year I have a lot of confidence."
