Keys to the game

Here are the highlights.

Clutch hit(s): Lee Orr tied the game with a solo home run with one out in the ninth inning. Both of Orr's home runs have come in the ninth inning. His first on May 16 lifted the team to a 5-3 win at Lansing.

Steak over: Mike Gallic went 0 for 4, ending his seven-game hitting streak.

Late dramatics: Prior to Sunday, the TinCaps were 1-17 when trailing entering the ninth inning.


"That closer (Bowling Green's Austin Hubbard) was good. He threw some good offspeed. I didn't hit it the best, but it found a hole. We'll take it."
