Wild show on the field

Check out the highlights of the TinCaps 10-5 loss to Lake County on Aug. 16, 2015, at Parkview Field, including an amazing postgame show from Quick Change.

Video: It was an eventful night

It was an eventful night at Parkview Field, where the TinCaps trailed by eight runs, fought back to within five and saw Fernando Perez strike out with the bases loaded and two outs in the ninth, and Fort Wayne lost 10-5 to the Lake County Captains.

As the players took in the postgame show - Quick Change and fireworks were on hand (see above video) - they had to mull their seven losses in the last 10 games and now being 3.5 games out of the last playoff spot with 16 games remaining.

“It’s late in the season, and we’ve just got to keep grinding and pull out as many wins as we can,” said Ronnie Richardson, who was 1 for 2 with a home run.

“Every game matters at this point, especially when we’re (3½) games out of the playoffs and trying to make that final push. Guys have got to have the energy to keep going. … Every game counts and we’ve got to do something to come out, mentally prepare and be ready to play.”

"You're down by that many runs and you have to find a way to come together as a team and just grind through," Fort Wayne's Nick Schulz said. "We did the best we could, swung the bats well. It is what it is tonight. You just have to tip your cap to them. They played well."
