Lake County strikes back: TinCaps surrender lead late, lose on Star Wars night

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — The TinCaps couldn’t muster quite enough of The Force on Friday night, falling 5-4 on Star Wars night.

The Captains jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the second inning, but the TinCaps struck back with a pair of RBI hits form Juan Fernandez and Lee Solomon.

Fernandez vaulted the TinCaps in front with a two-run single in the sixth, making it 4-2 TinCaps.

But, Lake County got the last laugh, plating three runs in the eighth, all surrendered by TinCaps All-Star Henry Henry.

The TinCaps now hit the road for a nine-game road trip, starting Saturday night at Great Lakes.
