TinCaps split to close 12-game trip | Sports
The TinCaps wrapped up their franchise-record 12-game road trip on Sunday with a double double at Four Winds Field against the South Bend Cubs.
Fort Wayne won the first game, which was suspended in the third inning in the rain on Saturday night, 3-2 on a two-run homerun from slugger Agustin Ruiz in the fifth who broke a 1-all tie.
Ruiz has 10 home runs and 36 RBIs, placing in the top four at High-A Central in both categories.
The TinCaps box pitched seven innings in the opener and allowed just one run on four hits while striking out eight. Southpaw Ramon Perez pitched two scoreless innings and earned his second victory in as many appearances since being promoted to High-A.
Edwuin Bencomo pitched a scoreless inning in his first appearance in nearly three weeks due to a contraction in his forearm.
Fort Wayne (22-25) lost the second game in seven innings 11-4 after starter Matt Waldron allowed nine runs (won three) with seven walks in 22/3 innings.
The TinCaps took 4 out of 6 from the Cubs and went 6-6 on the road trip.
