Kyle Gaedele had two of Fort Wayne's four hits in a 3-2 loss to South Bend in front of 6,233 fans Friday at Parkview Field.
Fort Wayne went 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position.
Here are the highlights.
Strong start: Fort Wayne starting pitcher Matt Wisler gave up one run on three hits in five innings. He struck out four and walked one, but did not factor in the decision.
Key hit: Fidel Pena knocked in Marc Bourgeois with a double in the sixth inning to give the Silver Haws a 3-2 lead.
Key out(s): Fort Wayne had runners on first and third with no outs in the ninth inning. Duanel Jones hit a grounder to third. Casey McElroy headed home on contact and was thrown out by Matt Helm. Austin Hedges then hit a sharp grounder to second for a game-ending double play.
"It's one of those games where we'll look back, we all had some pitches to hit with runners on and we didn't do our job tonight, but tomorrow, we'll come out in the same situation and come through with the win."
