News and notes
- Fort Wayne tossed its first nine-inning no-hitter in franchise history Thursday during a 1-0 win against Great Lakes. The game featured an odd ending, too. You can read about it here, see a notebook on the game here and watch video of manager Jose Valentin's thoughts on the win here. Staff photographer Chad Ryan also put together a photo gallery from the game with plenty of stellar shots.
- Frias has the second-best ERA in the Midwest League, which could be a problem for the TinCaps. Fort Wayne scored two runs in three road games entering a 6-5 win against Great Lakes on Wednesday and only managed one run in a bizarre turn of events Thursday. The team will probably need some more offensive pop to get the series sweep today.
- Roman Madrid continued his strong season with the win Thursday. The closer leads Fort Wayne in wins, with four, and saves, with five. He has yet to give up an earned run and has struck out 16 batters in 15.2 innings of work. The righty boasts a 0.77 walks and hits per inning pitched as well, which is best on the team.
