Game 22: TinCaps (7-14) vs. South Bend (13-8)

CHRIS GOFF | The Journal Gazette

After a rain delay of two hours, the first game of the TinCaps' doubleheader against South Bend is finally set to start with first pitch scheduled for 3:05 p.m.

Due to Midwest League rules, both ends of the doubleheader are shortened to seven innings.

Austin Smith is on the mound for Fort Wayne in the first game, opposed by the Cubs' Bryan Hudson.

The TinCaps' bullpen underwent a slight pregame makeover, with Will Stillman and Emmanuel Ramirez removed from the roster. Taking their places are Blake Rogers, activated from the disabled list, and Diomar Lopez, arriving from extended spring training.

Here is the lineup for Fort Wayne.
