DAYTON, OH - The Fort Wayne TinCaps lost the opener of their final series of 2021 to the Dayton
Dragons (Cincinnati Reds affiliate), 10-2, at Day Air Ballpark on Tuesday night.
Padres No. 3 prospect Robert Hassell III tripled off the center-field wall to lead off the game, but the TinCaps (54-61) couldn't drive him in. A half-inning later, Dayton center fielder, and the No. 11 Reds prospect, Michael Siani homered on the first pitch of the game from Fort Wayne starter
It took until the final frame for the TinCaps to get on the board. Third baseman Euribiel Angeles walked with the bases loaded to drive in the first run, and right fielder Tirso Ornelas hit a sacrifice fly to cut the deficit to eight. Despite the loss, Ornelas also singled, hitting safely for a 13th consecutive start.
