News and notes

  • A loss today would give Fort Wayne its longest losing streak of the season. The TinCaps have lost five in a row three times, including the current stretch.
  • This will be Shepherd's first start of the year. The right-hander is usually a reliever, but has gone for long stretches out of the bullpen in past games. He has appeared in 31 games for the TinCaps this season.
