TinCaps end first half with walkoff win over Captains

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — A little drama for the first half finale.

The TinCaps blew a three-run lead in the top of the ninth inning, then earned a 4-3 walkoff win over the Lake County Captains.

Agustin Ruiz got the game started with some noise, hitting a three-run homer in the bottom of the first inning.

Neither team scored again until the ninth. The Captains scored three earned runs off of Fort Wayne’s Austin Smith.

Smith (W, 1-1) lucked out though, picking up the win after Tucupita Marcano delivered a two out, bases loaded single to end it.
