Just hours later, the Captains hosted the TinCaps on Wednesday afternoon.  In another low scoring game, the TinCaps defeated the Captains, 3-1.

In Tuesday night's victory, the Captains got their only run when Jose Devers went yard on an 0-2 count with two outs in the bottom of the 7th inning.

Devers home run was his 5th of the season.

In addition to Devers home run, the Captains got excellent pitching.  

Pitching the first 5.2 innings was Austin Peterson who only gave up 4 hits and struck out 6.

Closing out the game in the 9th inning for the Captains on Tuesday night was Zane Morehouse who got his 5th save of the season.

In Wednesday afternoon's Captains game, the TinCaps took an early 2-0 lead in the top of the second inning. They then added a run in the top of the 4th to make the score 3-0.

The Captains scored their only run of Wednesday afternoon's game in the seventh inning on a bases loaded walk to Zac Fascia.
