Losing to Lansing, Tennis Tryout

Monday marked the start of the third series between the TinCaps and Lugnuts this year and for the first time, the TinCaps didn’t win the series opener. The Lugnuts, who won the first-half crown, now have 5-2 mark in the season series against Fort Wayne.

Matt Wisler had an uncharacteristic outing, giving up a season-high tying four runs over four innings of work. The TinCaps cut the four run deficit to two in the fourth inning, but couldn’t piece together enough offense and ended up losing 6-2. Nagging factors in the loss were a season-high tying four errors and 11 strikeouts.

Today Fort Wayne faces righty Aaron Sanchez, who has given up just four earned runs this season and sports a 0.77 ERA.
