Keys to the game

The TinCaps were eliminated from playoff contention for the first half with Thursday's 5-4 loss to Lansing. Here are the highlights.

Key hit: Kevin Patterson hit a three-run home run in the eighth inning off of reliever Chris Haney to give the Lugnuts the lead.

Key out: Fort Wayne's Yeison Asencio was called out at the plate trying to score on a single by Duanel Jones in the second inning. It appeared Asencio got in ahead of the tag by Lansing catcher Carlos Perez.

Strong outing: Fort Wayne starting pitcher Colin Rea gave up one run on four hits in six innings. He struck out a career-high eight batters.


"There are still 70 games left in the season. It's a whole new season in the second half."
