Game recap from the TinCaps:
TinCaps End Trip with Shutout Win
LANSING, Mich. (May 28, 2018) – For the second time in five games, the TinCaps earned a shutout win on the road. Fort Wayne beat the Lansing Lugnuts (Toronto Blue Jays), 3-0, at Cooley Law School Stadium on a sweltering Memorial Day afternoon.
The youngest pitcher in the Midwest League, Luis PatiÃ±o, threw five scoreless innings. The 18-year-old from Colombia scattered three hits, a walk, and a hit batter as he struck out four. PatiÃ±o threw 75 pitches (49 strikes).
After PatiÃ±o, Jordan Guerrero worked two scoreless frames followed by Ben Sheckler, who finished it off with two perfect innings to earn the save.
Offensively, the TinCaps (23-27) scored twice in the third and added an insurance run in the sixth.
The Lugnuts (32-19) committed four errors in the game, including three in the third. Shortstop Gabriel Arias led the frame off with a single. He advanced to second base on an errant pickoff throw by the left-handed starter Matthew Gunter and to third on a wild pitch. Jeisson Rosario then doubled Arias home. Lansing got even sloppier later in the inning as designated hitter Luis Campusano hit a popup in the infield that went uncaught and was then kicked toward left field, enabling Rosario to score.
In the sixth, third baseman Luis Almanzar doubled and then scored on a double from Arias.
Over the last two daysâ€”both winsâ€”Fort Wayne relievers have worked 10 innings and allowed just one run.
