In April, Allen led the Midwest League in batting average (.460), slugging (.603), and OPS (1.143).

Fort Wayne (14-11) was down 2-1 with Kodie Tidwell at second base and one out when Zunica came up against Clinton’s Darin Gillies (L, 3-1). The 6-foot-6, 20-year-old hammered his team-leading fourth homer of the season that cleared the high wall.

After a pair of one-run wins to start the series, the TinCaps dropped their finale against the Peoria Chiefs, 11-1, on Thursday night at Parkview Field.

TinCaps third baseman Ty France is living out his dream playing with the San Diego Padres organization. Working his way up through the Padres farm system is even more special to the California native because his mentor and first college manager was Mr. Padre himself, Tony Gwynn.
Fort Wayne (9-6) had been 5-0 on the season when scoring first, but that changed on this mostly dry night.
