He didn’t disappoint as he pitched five innings and allowed just one earned run and struck out four.  The TinCaps fell behind to the West Michigan Whitecaps in the first inning, but didn’t stay down for long. Gabriel Arias singled home the tying run in the second. The TinCaps took the lead in the third and didn’t look back after a Luis Almanzar RBI single. Arias doubled home another run to add on.
