Keys to the game

The TinCaps hit three home runs in a 10-3 win against Lansing Tuesday.

Here are the highlights.

Key hit(s): Tyler Stubblefield hit a two-run homer in the sixth to tie the game at 3. Duanel Jones gave the TinCaps a one-run lead with a home run in the seventh. Yeison Asencio added a three-run homer later in the inning.

Drought over: The TinCaps had gone 10 straight games without a home run.

Bullpen: James Needy pitched three scoreless innings out of the bullpen for the victory. He struck out two and gave up three hits.

Quotable:

"We got to their bullpen, got a few guys on and were able to capitalize and tie the game and then the floodgates opened. It seemed like the team had a surge of confidence and energy."
