Heading into today’s 7 p.m. game against the Lansing Lugnuts at Parkview Field, TinCaps first baseman Jake Bauers is riding a 15-game hitting streak.
That’s the longest active streak in the Midwest League and the longest by a Fort Wayne player this season.
During this streak, which dates back to May 24, Bauers is batting .444 with four home runs and 12 RBI.
He has also reached base in 24 straight games.
The longest regular-season hitting streak by a Fort Wayne player is 18 games, accomplished twice – by Rymer Liriano in 2011 and Blake Tekotte in 2009.
Fort Wayne (28-35) has lost back-to-back games, both against Bowling Green. Lansing is 29-34.
