By the numbers: Quad Cities 4, TinCaps 3

A look at Fort Wayne's loss to Quad Cities on Wednesday at Parkview Field with significant facts and figures.


The speed of the ball off Tyler Stubblefield's bat when he hit his third home run of the season for Fort Wayne. All three of his homers have been pull shots over the left-field wall, and Stubblefield's most recent bomb briefly tied the game for the TinCaps.


Errors by Fort Wayne in the loss, including two in the top of the ninth inning. Those miscues brought in two unearned runs -- and, as manager Jose Valentin was quick to point out, the TinCaps offense mustered what could have been a winning run in the bottom of the frame.


Paid attendance at Parkview Field crossed the quarter-million mark Wednesday. Fort Wayne had 5,562 in paid attendance for the 4-3 loss.


Strikeouts by the TinCaps in the loss. Quad Cities starter Lance McCullers racked up eight of them, and relievers Mitchell Lambson and Juan Minaya got a pair each.
