A 6-5 win by the TinCaps on Saturday gave the team a couple milestones on the season. First, it was the largest deficit they’ve overcome to win a ballgame this season. They trailed 3-0 after the top of the first, and later trailed 5-2. That was a promising sign for an offense that is starting to come to life.
The second marker of success in the game was the seven doubles that the team collected off of Peoria pitching. That number is just one shy of the franchise record for two-baggers in a game. Eight doubles in one game has occurred twice: May 31st of 2008 against Dayton, and last year 366 days prior on April 27 against Lake County.
Interesting side note–In that game against Dayton, the winning pitcher for Fort Wayne was Jeremy Hefner. He recently became the 108th former Fort Wayne player to reach the bigs. Hefner did it as a member of the New York Mets, as he pitched three scoreless innings against the San Francisco Giants.
