Which Caps will we see?

What a strange bunch these TinCaps are.

They are 55-50 overall this season, but they are 12-24 in the second half.

They are riding a five-game losing streak, including a 10-9 loss Tuesday night to the Lake County Captains. In that game, Fort Wayne coughed up an 8-1 lead.

Those teams meet again today.

This is my third game of the season and after the first two, manager Jose Valentin was less than pleased.

If the TinCaps don't win today, he might blow his top.

On the mound for Fort Wayne: Zach Eflin (5-5) vs. Lake County's Ryan Merritt (6-9).
