Single-A: Fort Wayne TinCaps (53-68)

The Fort Wayne TinCaps were defeated by the Lansing Lugnuts 6-1. Despite taking the loss, starter Cody Hebner kept his team in the game lasting 5 innings allowing 3 earned runs on 6 hits and 1 walk while striking out 7. Hebner has had a disappointing season; he started the season at Lake Elsinore but had a dismal performance. In 31 games he owned a 4.81 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, and batters were hitting .263 against him. He has performed much better since being demoted to Fort Wayne. In 8 games, Hebner owns a 2.81 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and batters are hitting a miniscule .224. Hopsfullt Hebner can get back on track and start heading in the right direction again. As the saying goes, you can never have too much pitching.

Fort Wayne was nearly skunked at the plate. The team only mustered 2 hits and 4 walks against Lansing pitchers. Trea Turner went 0-for-3 with 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. Is this just a bad game or is he finally starting to cool off. Time will tell.
