TinCaps rout Kernals

The TinCaps erupted for six runs in the top of the eighth inning and added three more in the ninth to claim a 9-1 come-from-behind victory over the Cedar Rapids Kernels at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on Thursday.

The TinCaps (15-11, 46-50) managed just two hits off Cedar Rapids (8-18, 40-55) starting pitcher Cameron Bedrosian through seven. But when Bedrosian was lifted for R.J. Alvarez to begin the eighth, the TinCaps quickly took advantage of the change.

Yeison Asencio, who went 2 for 4, doubled to open the inning, then moved to third on Duanel Jones' bunt that was intended to be a sacrifice.

Austin Hedges' single drove in Asencio with the tying run, but the TinCaps continued.

When Lee Orr was hit by a pitch, it loaded the bases for Kyle Gaedele, who reached on a throwing error that enabled Jones and Hedges to score.

With two outs, Tyler Stubblefield hit a two-run double, stole third, then came in on a throwing error by the Cedar Rapids catcher.

The three-game series concludes Friday.
