Keys to the game

Taylor Davis hit a grand slam for Peoria in a 5-2 victory against the TinCaps in front of 5,358 fans Sunday at Parkview Field.

Here are the highlights.

Key hit: The grand slam by Davis was the big hit in the third inning. The Chiefs scored all their runs in the inning.

Stranded: Fort Wayne went just 3 for 12 with runners in scoring position.

Still going: Travis Whitmore went 2 for 4 with two RBI for Fort Wayne. Whitmore has a .341 batting average.

Quotable:

"I had him 3-2 and he fouled one off. You can't go 3-2 with the bases loaded and throw an offspeed (pitch). He knew a fastball was coming and he connected with it and put it out of the park."

- Matt Wisler, who surrendered the grand slam to Davis
