4-run 8th snaps TinCaps’ streak

The TinCaps’ season-best winning streak was halted at five games, thanks to a 9-6 loss to the Bowling Green Hot Rods on Friday night.

Fort Wayne squandered an early 4-0 lead but remained up 6-5 before surrendering four runs in the eighth inning at Kentucky’s Bowling Green Ballpark.

Johnny Fields’ two-run triple provided the winning run for the Hot Rods (25-29) in front of 3,336 fans, as Fort Wayne (24-30) took 2 of 3 games in the series.

A day after being assigned to the TinCaps by the San Diego Padres, starter Ronald Herrera went 6 2/3 innings, allowing seven hits and five runs, while striking out five and walking one.

Herrera was acquired from Oakland on Wednesday, completing the May 15 trade in which the Padres sent Kyle Blanks to the A’s for Jake Goebbert.

After Genison Reyes pitched one inning for the TinCaps on Friday, Wilson Santos was handed a blown save and the loss by allowing four runs on three hits, while striking out one and walking one.

Fort Wayne’s Dane Phillips was 2 for 4 with a double, a home run and two RBI.

Bowling Green’s Granden Goetzman was 3 for 4 with a double and three runs.
