Fort Wayne scored seven runs in the first inning and beat Peoria 8-4 in front of 5,258 fans Monday at Parkview Field.
Here are the highlights:
Key hit -- Austin Hedges hit a two-run home run in the first inning. The homer gave the TinCaps a 4-0 lead.
On the mound -- Cody Hebner went a season-high 5 2/3 innings for the victory. He allowed one run on five hits and struck out four.
A rarity -- Fort Wayne took two of three from the Chiefs. It's just the second time this season the TinCaps have won a series.
Quotable -- "We came together and strung some timely hits. Cody (Hebner) did a great job today. Hopefully we can take some momentum and build off of it." - Fort Wayne second baseman Casey McElroy
