The Bowling Green Hot Rods dropped their sixth straight, this one to the Fort Wayne TinCaps 13-2 on Friday at Bowling Green Ballpark.
The TinCaps struck for three runs in the top of the first and cruised to their second win of the season.
Tobias Myers got the start for the Hot Rods and went four innings, allowing seven hits, five runs (all earned), two walks and six strikeouts. Myers ran into trouble in the first inning which started with a one out single by Justin Lopez.
After a walk and a single to load the bases, Juan Fernandez promptly cleared them with a three-run double. The TinCaps led 3-0 after a half inning.
The Hot Rods responded with a run in the bottom of the third when Mac Seibert doubled, moved up to third on a Carl Chester single and scored on a wild pitch. That was the only run the Hot Rods would score until Eleardo Cabrera’s solo home run in the ninth.
The TinCaps added two runs to their lead in the top of the fourth on a home run. They got one more in the top of the fifth when a walk to Rosario turned into a run thanks to a two-base error and a wild pitch.
Fort Wayne put the game away with seven runs in the seventh inning, as they sent 12 hitters to the plate and swelled the lead to 13-1.
The Hot Rods are now 3-6 and the TinCaps improved to 2-7. The two teams are scheduled to play at 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
