Game 78: TinCaps (32-45) vs. South Bend (40-36)

CHRIS GOFF | The Journal Gazette

The TinCaps are a win away from sweeping a four-game series, which is even more significant an opportunity than appears at face value.

Fort Wayne has gone six full seasons without sweeping a four-game series. The last time the TinCaps pulled it off was in August 2010 at Lansing. The last time they ran the table in a four-game set at home was August 2009 against Dayton.

Will Stillman is pitching against South Bend's Bryan Hudson. The TinCaps have faced Hudson twice and batted .371 against him with a .907 on-base plus slugging percentage.

Here is the lineup for Fort Wayne:

Fernando Tatis Jr. SS

Buddy Reed CF

Jorge Ona RF

Brad Zunica 1B

Hudson Potts 3B

Marcus Greene Jr. DH
