Four ejected in loss to Bowling Green

Jake Hager and Matt Rice hit home runs for Bowling Green in an 8-2 victory against the TinCaps in front of 4,937 fans Tuesday at Parkview Field.

Fort Wayne pitching coach Willie Blair was ejected following Hager's home run in the fifth inning.

Hager's home run bounced off the concrete beyond left field and then came back on to the field. Base umpire John Libka originally ruled the ball was still in play. Bowling Green manager Brady Williams argued, and after Libka met with home plate umpire Alex Tosi, the call was changed.

Fort Wayne pitcher Matt Stites and manager Jose Valentin were thrown out of the game after Rice's home run in the eighth inning. The ball was hit down the third-base line. Tosi ruled it was fair for a home run. Stites was immediately thrown out. Valentin argued and was also ejected.

Lee Orr hit a home run and added an RBI double for the TinCaps.

Fort Wayne's Travis Whitmore was ejected after striking out to end the game.
