Lansing, MI – The Fort Wayne TinCaps clicked on all cylinders in a 9-0 victory over the
Lansing Lugnuts, Saturday at Oldsmobile Park to finish a three-game series sweep. Fort
Wayne delivered its second shutout of the series in a combined two-hitter while the
offense pounded out seven extra-base hits.
Drew Cumberland again led the offensive onslaught, going 3-for-4 with a walk and
finishing a home run shy of the cycle. Daniel Robertson went 2-for-5 with a double,
triple and three RBIs.
RHP Simon Castro drew the start and, despite six walks, fired 4.1 scoreless innings and
allowed just one hit. LHP Colt Hynes (1-0) picked up the win in relief. It was the second
time in the series the TinCaps did not allow a runner to advance past second base.
The TinCaps jumped onto the scoreboard in the top of the 3rd. With runners at first and
second and one out, Robertson roped a two-run triple down the left-field line. Sawyer
Carroll followed with a sacrifice fly to center to make it 3-0.
In the 4th, Cumberland ripped a two-out triple and Blake Tekotte’s RBI single bumped
the lead to 4-0.
With two out in the 5th, Matt Clark hit a towering double off the 26-foot-high wall in right
field to plate Allan Dykstra and make it 5-0.
In the 6th, Robertson and Carroll hit back-to-back two-out RBI doubles to push the lead to
Cumberland’s two-out, two-run double in the 7th made it 9-0.
The TinCaps scored six of their nine runs on two-out RBIs.
While Hynes notched the win, Lansing LHP Chuck Huggins was saddled with the loss to
fall to 0-1.

Fort Wayne improved to 3-0 while Lansing dropped to 0-3. It was the first three-game
road sweep for Fort Wayne since September 2007.
