News and notes

  • The TinCaps struggled with some great pitching from Clinton yesterday and will have to fare better this morning against a young arm. Sanchez, 18, makes his second start in the Midwest League, while Weickel will make his debut at Parkview Field.
  • Fort Wayne has six games on the road following this six-game homestand and will want to carry some positive momentum into those contests. The TinCaps are 4-7 on the road. However, they will be playing a pair of teams – the Burlington Bees and the Peoria Chiefs – with sub-.500 records.
