TinCaps trail after three

Three innings are in the books, and the TinCaps trail 3-1 thanks to some less-than-sterling play in the field.

Great Lakes pieced together two runs in the second on a single, a double, two errors and a wild pitch. After Brandon Dixon reached on a two-out fielder's choice, Jose Capellan brought him home with a double that turned into three bases on TinCaps' right fielder Hunter Renfroe's throwing error.

Capellan then came home when first baseman Luis Tejada fumbled Brandon Trinkwon's slow roller down the line.

The TinCaps got one back with on back-to-back doubles from Tejada and Rodney Daal in their half, but Tyler Ogle's double and Devin Shines' RBI single made it a two-run game again in the third.

So far, TinCaps starter Max Fried has given up four hits and two earned runs in three innings, while throwing 55 pitches.
