FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) – The TinCaps lost 16-9 to the Great Lakes Loons on Monday night, and were swept in a three game series.  

Great Lakes poured it on early, scoring nine combined runs in the first three innings. The Loons put across four in the first and four more in the second, followed by a single run in the third. Jacob Amaya had a two-run triple in the first, and Dillon Paulson hit a three-run home run in the second inning.  

Fort Wayne (3-8, 36-43) broke out the power bats to score three runs combined between the first three innings, as Michael Curry smacked a two-run double in the first and Justin Lopez had a solo homer in the third.  

The Loons expanded the lead again with a four-run fourth, including a three-run blast from Miguel Vargas. Great Lakes added single runs in the fifth, seventh, and eighth.  

The TinCaps scored twice in the fifth without recording a hit, and added four runs in the ninth to get closer.

TinCaps left-handed pitcher Joey Cantillo earned the Midwest League Pitcher of the Week award for the second straight week on Monday.  

Cantillo last Wednesday against the South Bend Cubs threw eight scoreless innings while taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning. The left-hander racked up nine strikeouts with no walks and allowed just two singles.
