Prospect Watch:The visiting Captains got two runs in the second and three in the third after getting behind 1-0 in the first to bring down the TinCaps in their only home game of the best of three series...Enloe hadn’t allowed a run, earned or unearned, in the past 12 innings he had pitched until Lake County got to him in the second. As hot as Dustin Peterson has been at the plate his throwing error in the second let in the first run. Fort Wayne had been using Fernando Perez at third in the last few games and Peterson as a DH until Perez was injured. It was Dustin’s second error in the playoffs to go along with 38 he made this season at third base...Trea Turner had the lone extra-base hit of the night with a lead-off double in the first inning...Despite the errors Peterson’s bat is for real. He is leading the team in batting average for the playoffs at .462 and was fifth in the league with 79 RBI. Fernando Perez finished first in the league with 95 RBI and his presence was missed...The crowd at tonight’s home game helped break Fort Wayne’s all-time attendance record. The TinCaps drew 411,028 this season. For the season, the TinCaps were third in the Midwest League in attendance...The series resumes on Sunday night in Lake County (Eastlake, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland) at 7:00 PM.
