FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) – The TinCaps starting pitching once again flourished and the offense provided late run support, giving Fort Wayne a 3-1 win over the South Bend Cubs at Parkview Field in front of a sellout crowd on Wednesday afternoon.
After early trouble spots, Gabe Mosser settled into quite the groove on the mound for the TinCaps, retiring the final 15 batters he faced, finishing his outing with six scoreless innings and six strikeouts while allowing just three hits.
His mates finally got him a lead in the sixth when Lee Solomon doubled to lead off the inning and after a groundout, Justin Lopez brought him home with a booming home run to right-center field that traveled 398 feet. Lopez has three home runs on the current homestand.
South Bend briefly crept closer with a run in the top of the seventh, but the TinCaps answered right back with an insurance run in the bottom half of the seventh when Jawuan Harris singled with one out, stole second, and scored when Solomon grounded a single into right field.
