The Fort Wayne offense stayed quiet in game two, as Great Lakes starter Michael Boyle (W, 2-2) tossed the first shutout of the season in the Midwest League and only surrendered two hits. Fort Wayne starter Austin Smith (L, 0-2) gave up a run in four frames.

The TinCaps (18-15), who began the day 10-3 at home, dropped their first home series of the season and saw their three-game winning streak halted.
