Game 32: TinCaps (11-20) vs. Wisconsin (13-15)

CHRIS GOFF | The Journal Gazette

Fans at Parkview Field will enjoy seeing Logan Allen tonight, because, amazingly, all five of his starts have come on the road.

Maybe the TinCaps' left-hander doesn't need to be at home, though. He's off to a magnificent start with an ERA of 1.50 and 34 strikeouts in 24 innings. Allen's strikeout rate ranks fifth among Midwest League pitchers who have thrown at least 20 innings.

Moreover, Allen's ground-ball rate (56 percent, according to Fangraphs) ranks sixth in the league.

Wisconsin, which won Monday's series opener, sends Trey Supak to the mound. He is winless in four starts despite impressive statistics, such as a 2.59 ERA and an opponent batting average of .160.

Here is the lineup for Fort Wayne:

Fernando Tatis Jr. SS
