Keys to the game

Fort Wayne scored four runs in the eighth inning to defeat Burlington 6-2 Thursday at Parkview Field.

Travis Whitmore had two hits and three RBI.

Here are the highlights.

Key hit: Travis Whitmore put the TinCaps ahead with a single to right field in the eighth inning. Donavan Tate scored on the hit.

Key sequence: The big at-bat came between singles by Tate and Whitmore. Casey McElroy worked a 3-2 count and drew a walk. The battle lasted eight pitches.


"Whitmore is one of those guys for us, he's been the best hitter of the year. He got behind the count 0-2, worked the count to 3-2 and got a pitch to drive it and got a big hit in that situation."
