By the numbers: TinCaps win 5-3

Fort Wayne moved to 38-23 with a win against Dayton on Sunday. The TinCaps will close out their series against the Dragons (26-36) at 7:05 p.m. Monday

Here's a look back at the game Sunday through the numbers that came from it.

15

Number of games over .500 the TinCaps are. A five-game losing streak against strong competition in the middle of the first half of the season proved more a fluke than a trend, and Fort Wayne is firmly entrenched in the wild-card spot in the Midwest League Eastern Division.

6

Errors between both teams, including four by Dayton, in the game Sunday. The game also included four hit batsmen, nine walks and only three earned runs despite an eight-run line.

It wasn't pretty by any means, but as manager Jose Valentin said after the game, the TinCaps will take them any way they can at this point of the season.

3

The elimination number for Bowling Green, which is behind Fort Wayne in the standings. The TinCaps have a week of games left before the All-Star break, so if the Hot Rods were to make a move, it would require a grand collapse by Fort Wayne and almost perfect baseball from Bowling Green over the course of a half-ending road stand.

2

RBI by Fort Wayne first baseman Luis Tejada, the only player on either team to record more than one RBI in the game. Corey Adamson had a good outing, as well, and went 3-for-5 from the second spot in the TinCaps lineup.
