TinCaps take early advantage

Fort Wayne has a big lead, and starter Justin Hancock only one hit to his name, as the TinCaps lead Bowling Green 6-0 in the third.

The TinCaps got two runs in the first inning after a single from Gabriel Quintana and a fielding error by the Hot Rods center fielder. Alberth Martinez scored from first on the play, and Jeremy Baltz drove Quintana in on a single of his own in the next at-bat.

Fort Wayne tacked on another run in the bottom of the second. Corey Adamson led off the inning with a single and stole second. Stephen Carmon drove him in on a grounder to left-center.

The Hot Rods made another critical error in the third, and again the TinCaps made them pay.

A fielding error by the third baseman that could have been a double play put runners on first and second, and with one out, Luis Tejada hit a double to score the fourth run.

Rodney Daal came up two batters later and drove in two more runs with a standup triple into the right-center alley.

Fort Wayne has eight hits.
