TinCaps lead after 3 innings

Its 4-0, TinCaps over Lake County, after three innings on a beautiful night at Parkview Field.

The TinCaps got their first two batters on with doubles in the first inning, and both scored. Jace Peterson led off with a hustle double on a hit into shallow right-center. Running hard out of the batter's box, he beat the throw to second. He then scored on Donavan Tate's double into the gap in left-center.

Tate moved to third on a passed ball, then scored on Austin Hedges' ground ball into the hole at shortstop that was called a hit.

The TinCaps got two more in the bottom of the third when Lee Orr singled, stole second and scored on Duanel Jones' double to center. After Jones moved to third on a wild pitch, Tyler Stubblefield's ground ball was misplayed by the Lake County first baseman, which allowed Jones to score.

Because it's 70s night, the TinCaps are dressed in the old jerseys of their San Diego Padres parent club. The jerseys are primarily brown, with mustard-yellow on the sleeves.
