TinCaps first baseman Carlos Belen homered for the fourth time this season, but the TinCaps fell, 3-2, in their series finale with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (Milwaukee Brewers) at Parkview Field on Sunday afternoon.


Wisconsin (12-17) broke the scoring seal with two unearned runs in the top of the second inning. With runners on first and second, Nick Roscetti singled to right-field line to score Zach Clark from second base and give the Timber Rattlers a 1-0 lead.

The next batter, Joantgel Segovia, singled on a bunt down the third-base line to score Jay Feliciano from third and extend Wisconsin’s advantage to 2-0.

The Timber Rattlers added an insurance run in the top of the fourth. Gabriel García lined an RBI single to left field to score Devin Hairston and give Wisconsin a 3-0 edge.

Fort Wayne (13-17) didn’t get on the board until the bottom of the fourth inning. Belen missed a home run by a few feet off the left-field wall to lead off the inning with a double. Belen later scored on an RBI single from third baseman Reinaldo Ilarraza to cut the deficit to 3-1.

The TinCaps produced another run in the bottom of the sixth inning. With one out, Belen belted the first pitch of the at-bat to the Xfinity Home Run Porch in left field for a no-doubt home run to pull Fort Wayne within one, 3-2. Belen now is tied with Esteury Ruiz for the team lead with four homers on the season.

Fort Wayne threatened again in the bottom of the ninth with Ilarraza at third and only one out in the inning, but Wisconsin reliever Robbie Hitt induced a pop-up and collected a strikeout to end the ballgame and give the Timber Rattlers the series sweep with a 3-2 win.

Even with the loss, the TinCaps received a quality start from Nick Margevicius, who went a season-long six innings, allowing only one earned run while striking out nine, which tied a season high.
