Game recap from the TinCaps:
Spectacular TinCaps Pitching Not Enough Before Sellout Crowd
Fort Wayne falls 1-0 in 10 innings to Lansing
(May 18, 2016) – Despite a terrific pitching performance, the TinCaps dropped the middle game with the Lansing Lugnuts, 1-0, in 10 innings before a sellout crowd at Parkview Field on Wednesday afternoon.
The TinCaps (20-19) allowed just five hits to the Lugnuts (19-17), who plated a run in the 10th inning on a pair of hits.
Fort Wayne starter Logan Allen worked four shutout innings and surrendered just two hits and a walk to go along with four strikeouts. Fellow southpaw Jerry Keel followed with three scoreless stanzas. Righty Phil Maton then fanned four over a pair of perfect frames.
Gerardo Reyes (L, 2-1) gave up a one-out, ground-rule double down the right-field line near the bullpen in the 10th. Two batters later, Lugnuts second baseman Gunnar Heidt scored on a sharply struck infield single to first.
Lugnuts relievers Josh DeGraaf (W, 3-3) and Dusty Isaacs (S, 5) worked three shutout innings in relief of starter Jon Harris, the 2015 first-round pick of the Blue Jays. Harris punched out 11 and only issued one free pass over seven sterling innings.
Fort Wayne stranded two in each of the second, third and ninth innings.
Second baseman Peter Van Gansen (2-for-5) and left fielder Rod Boykin (2-for-4) each posted multi-hit efforts.
