Giron Goes Deep Again As TinCaps Top Beloit 10-5

BELOIT, Wisc. – The TinCaps bounced back from a tough loss on Wednesday with a 10-5 win against the Beloit Snappers on Thursday night at Pohlman Field. Fort Wayne totaled 15 hits, including four from Nick Torres and three from Ruddy Giron.
Giron got the TinCaps off to a quick start as he led the game off with a home run to left field. It was the shortstop’s fifth home run in 19 games.
After the Snappers tied the game in the bottom of the first, designated hitter Edwin Moreno tripled to put Fort Wayne back in front, 2-1, in the top of the second. Later in the inning, catcher Miguel Del Castillo hit a sacrifice fly to put the TinCaps up 3-1.
Beloit (23-31) scratched a run across in the fourth before Torres and center fielder Michael Gettys both produced RBI-singles in the top of the fifth to make it 5-2.
Fort Wayne (22-31) expanded its lead to 6-2 in the seventh as Torres doubled in a run. The TinCaps added insurance with four runs — all with two outs — in the eighth. Giron and left fielder Franchy Cordero had run-scoring singles, while Torres provided another RBI-double.
Although the Snappers put up a run in the seventh and two more in the eighth, it wasn’t enough for their second massive comeback in as many nights. They rallied to win 8-7 on Wednesday after trailing 7-1.
Right-hander Dinelson Lamet (W, 1-3) earned the first win of his pro career on the mound. The 22-year-old from the Dominican Republic who was signed by the Padres last July allowed two runs over five innings. For the first time in eight starts, he didn’t walk a batter.
Heath Fillmyer (L, 0-6) was on the short end for Beloit, as he gave up three runs in four frames.
On the same day he was named a Midwest League All-Star, Torres finished four-for-four with four RBIs — both career highs.
The TinCaps look to take the series in the rubber match on Friday at 8:00 p.m. Michael Kelly (1-0, 6.14) receives the call to start for Fort Wayne against Junior Mendez (1-2, 4.78). The game can be heard on ESPN Radio 1380, TinCaps.com, and the TuneIn Radio app.
