News and notes
- The TinCaps clinched a postseason berth Tuesday with their win against the Captains. Here's our recap, a sidebar with some fun video and manager Jose Valentin's reaction.
- Fort Wayne will go for a 10-game winning streak today. The feat was last attained by the 2009 team, which earned two 10-game streaks before going on to win the Midwest League championship.
- This will be Rodriguez's third start off the season. The former reliever has built up steadily since his first start May 30, and in his last outing went five innings, with one earned run and five hits. He got the win in that game.
- As you might know, there's a big storm headed this way. We'll monitor the weather, but as of 5:15 p.m. the skies are clear over Parkview Field. Given the patterns, we might expect that to change, but the game is still on for now.
