Brasoban RHP (2-4, 7.11)
De Paula LHP (1-2, 6.94)
LOONY TUNES: The TinCaps are 6-12 against Great Lakes, which gives the Loons, who come in two games ahead of Fort Wayne, the playoff tiebreaker. This three-game series is the last meeting between the two teams.
INJURY UPDATE: Backup catcher Adolfo Reina (elbow) has been on the disabled list since Aug. 8 but is still in the treatment stages.
“Once the symptoms of that bruise or whatever you want to call it subside, he’ll start to build back up toward throwing,” TinCaps manager Michael Collins said. “Hopefully, sooner rather than later.”
DROPPED DOWN: Dustin Peterson is batting sixth in the lineup, only the second time Collins has put him that low in the order. Peterson’s average has fallen to .240 and his OPS to .653. He is 0 for 2 lifetime against Loons starter Luis De Paula.
CAUGHT IN THE WEBSTER: There’s one batter-versus-pitcher matchup to watch. Great Lakes catcher Webster Rivas, hitting sixth tonight, is 6 for 6 against Yimmi Brasoban this season and has driven in four runs. Plus, three of those hits were doubles.
