LANSING, MICHIGAN (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The Lansing Lugnuts withstood a ninth inning comeback by the TinCaps to score a 5-4 win over Fort Wayne Friday night,

A B.J. Guinn sacrifice fly in the ninth closed the gap to a run, but Mike Gallic struck out with runners on the corners to end the game.

Travis Jankowski's first homer plated another of the TinCaps' runs, and RBI singles by Guinn and Jace Peterson drove in the others.

The TinCaps open a four game series at home against Dayton Saturday night.
