FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21 Alive) - The TinCaps used the long ball twice in the late stages of their comeback 8-6 ten inning win over the West Michigan Whitecaps on Saturday night.

The Caps spotted West Michigan a 5-0 lead, then slowly erased the deficit, pulling even in the bottom of the ninth on a one out sold home run by Dustin Peterson.

They then capped the comeback on a two run walkoff homer by Adolfo Reina in the bottom of the tenth.

The two teams play the middle game of their three game series on Sunday at 3:05.
