Fort Wayne and Great Lakes (11-17) are scheduled to conclude their three-game series with a doubleheader Wednesday. Game one is still slated to begin at 11:05 a.m., and the series finale will follow 30 minutes after the conclusion of Wednesday’s first game. Both are scheduled for seven innings.

After four scoreless frames Tuesday, the TinCaps climbed ahead 1-0 in the bottom of the fifth when second baseman Peter Van Gansen reeled in right fielder Mason Smith with an RBI single to left-center field.
TinCaps starting pitcher Walker Lockett cruised into the sixth inning and only surrendered one run on four hits, no walks and four strikeouts.
With the score tied 1-1 in the bottom of the sixth, TinCaps center fielder Michael Gettys delivered a run-scoring single through the left side of the infield to plate pinch runner Kodie Tidwell.
Fort Wayne right-hander Trey Wingenter (W, 1-0) fanned three over the final 1.1 innings.
