TinCaps humbled on road

The TinCaps had a chance to take over first place in the Midwest League's Eastern Division second-half standings – or at least keep pace with Bowling Green, which was playing a later game – but Fort Wayne mustered only five hits in a 10-2 loss at South Bend.

In front of 3,474 fans at Coveleski Stadium, Kyle Gaedele was the only Fort Wayne player with multiple hits – he was 2 for 4 – and the TinCaps struck out nine times as they fell to 10-8 in the second half, 41-47 overall.

Alex Capul (1-1) did the bulk of the damage from the South Bend mound, striking out six and allowing only three hits and one run through five innings.

Fort Wayne's Ruben Mejia (1-4) surrendered six hits and six runs, striking out four, in 2 2/3 innings.

South Bend (10-8, 45-43) totaled 10 hits. Three players – Tom Belza,Ryan Courtand Eric Groff – had multiple hits. Belza had two doubles and three runs in four at-bats, and he had a stolen base.
