Fort Wayne TinCaps 6, Lake County Captains 12
Trea Turner – DH: 3-5, HR(3), RBI, 2K, 2 Runs scored

Notes: Trea Turner added on to his torrid start with the TinCaps by hitting his 3rd home run and bringing his average up to .431 over 109 AB’s with the TinCaps. Sustaining an average above .400 over more than 100 AB’s in the minor leagues is flat out amazing, regardless of the level. Dustin Peterson snapped a 4 game hitless streak tonight as he looks to get back on track after a mediocre July.

Jalen Goree – 2B: 1-4, HR(4), RBI, Run scored
Franchy Cordero – DH: 1-3, RBI

Notes: Outside of Jalen Goree’s 4th home run and a 2-hit game from Edwin Moreno, there was nothing positive about this game for Eugene. The Ems went 1-for-9 with RISP, struck out 12 times, committed 3 errors, and allowed 17 runs. They just endured a good, old-fashioned butt whoopin.
