TinCaps lose to South Bend

The TinCaps reduced the number of errors from a season-high five to just one Friday night, but the one opened the door for a three-run South Bend seventh inning in the Silver Hawks’ 5-4 victory before 7,078 fans at Parkview Field.

The loss for the TinCaps (19-14, 50-53) was their second straight to the Silver Hawks (18-15, 53-50), and it marked the first time since losing two out of three to Beloit two weeks ago that the TinCaps lost a series. Previously, they had won their last three. For the season, South Bend owns an 11-7 record against Fort Wayne.

TinCaps second baseman Tyler Stubblefield booted a hard ground ball from South Bend leadoff hitter Chris Ellison that could have ended in a force play at second. But the Silver Hawks made Fort Wayne pay with three unearned runs.

Fort Wayne mounted a ninth inning rally when Yeison Asencio and Travis Whitmore both beat out infield hits. Both advanced on a wild pitch. But Duanel Jones' ground ball was scooped up by South Bend third baseman Ryan Court, and Stubblefield's flair into right field was caught by the Silver Hawks' Ellison near the foul line.
