TinCaps are getting close to playoffs

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

Heading into tonight’s game at Parkview Field against the Great Lakes Loons, the TinCaps’ magic number for clinching a playoff berth is three. Any combination of wins by Fort Wayne and/or losses by South Bend that totals three will put the TinCaps in the postseason. South Bend is playing host to West Michigan tonight.

The TinCaps have lost their last two games and three of their last five, but they are coming off a day of rest.

A player to watch: Hudson Potts, who is hitting .375 since Aug. 10, hitting five home runs, six doubles and driving in nine runs along the way.
