The Fort Wayne TinCaps held the West Michigan Whitecaps scoreless and allowed just two hits in a 3-0 win Monday night at Parkview Field In Fort Wayne, IN.
Carlos Belen, a thorn in the Whitecaps’ side lately, and Michael Gettys knocked in a run each for the TinCaps in the first inning. Gettys scored in the sixth on an RBI double by Ty France, making the score 3-0.
But it was the dominance on the mound that keep the Whitecaps silent. West Michigan batters went down in order in seven of the nine innings and only had two baserunners all night, both of which were quickly erased with double plays. The final 13 batters went down in order. The TinCaps faced the minimum 27 batters in the game.
Things got so bad for the visitors that manager Andrew Graham was ejected in the eighth inning for disputing call at first base.
Sandy Baez (1-5) allowed three runs and struck out four. The Whitecaps drop to 22-19 after the series split with Fort Wayne.
Next up is a three-game road series with the Bowling Green Hot Rods starting Tuesday night at 7:35p.m.
Jordan Smith gets the start for West Michigan.
