Notes: The TinCaps staged an improbably comeback as they entered the 7th inning losing 7-2. Over the next 2 innings the TinCaps turned that 5 run deficit into a 5 run lead due in large part to the hot bat of Jake Bauers. Bauers laced his 3rd home run of the year in the 7th inning, a 3-run shot with 2 outs. Bauers has hit safely in 8 of his last 9 games and is hitting .347 over 101 AB’s on the year.
