MIDLAND, MI - On a night when left fielder Grant Little stole five bases to break a franchise record for the most in a single game, the Fort Wayne TinCaps cruised to a 12-5 win over the Great Lakes Loons (Los Angeles Dodgers affiliate) on Wednesday night at Dow Diamond.
In the first inning, the TinCaps (37-43) jumped on the scoreboard with their base running prowess. After Little walked, he stole second and third base with right fielder Agustin Ruiz at the plate. After Ruiz was hit by a pitch, Fort Wayne pulled off a double-steal. When Ruiz went to swipe second, Little broke for the plate and scored when the throw from the catcher went to second base.
Despite a late run from the Loons in the bottom of the eighth, the TinCaps rode their early lead to their first win over the Loons in the last seven matchups.
