Dane Phillips was 3 for 3 with two runs scored, and Corey Adamson was 2 for 3 with two RBI.

Also, Luis Tejada knocked in two runs for the TinCaps.

Lansing (34-43, 2-6) beat Fort Wayne for the first time in nine tries this season one day earlier, 7-5.

The TinCaps scored seven runs in the fifth inning to break the game open.

Fort Wayne outhit Lansing 11-7.

TinCaps pitcher Zach Eflin (4-4) is unbeaten over his last five starts, including three against the Lugnuts.

Lugnut starter Robert Osuno lasted 461/37 innings, giving up five hits and four earned runs.
