TinCaps 2, Lugnuts 0

This was Zach Eflin's night from the first pitch.

In a 2-0 victory Monday night over Lansing, the TinCaps righty went seven innings, gave up one hit -- Jordan Leyland's one-out single in the second -- and gave up just one baserunner after walking Dwight Smith Jr. with two out in the third.

He retired 21 of the 23 batters he faced, including the last 13, and threw 54 of his 79 pitches for strikes.

All told, Eflin and relievers Jorge Guzman and Chris Nunn retired 17 straight Lugnuts (49-64, 17-27 second half) and 19 of the last 21.

At the plate, Gabriel Quintana had two hits, scored one run and drove in the other for the TinCaps (59-53, 16-27), who managed just four hits themselves.
