FORT WAYNE, IN - An early offensive start and an incredibly strong finish by the bullpen propelled the Fort Wayne TinCaps to their second consecutive win over the Dayton Dragons (Cincinnati Reds affiliate) on Thursday night at Parkview Field, 3-1.
The TinCaps (32-37) opened the night with a bang in the bottom of the first. After second baseman
Chris Givin walked to lead off Fort Wayne's offensive night, center fielder Agustin Ruiz belted his 12th home run of the season, and his second in three nights. The two-run blast gave Ruiz 45 RBIs on the year, which is the sixth-highest mark in High-A Central. His 12 homers rank seventh.
The TinCaps play again tonight (Friday, July 23rd) vs. Dayton with a 7:05 p.m. game time.
