Goris had 2 HRs, but they left 16 runners on base

Fort Wayne had no problem getting runners on base Monday in its Midwest League game with West Michigan. However, a failure to bring enough of them home eventually cost the TinCaps, as they fell 9-6 in 13 innings in front of more than 6,000 fans at Parkview Field.

The crowd endured a 38-minute rain delay in the 4-hour, 13-minute game.

With 1960 World Series MVP Bobby Richardson in attendance and nice weather early on, the teams slugged five home runs; a pair were by TinCaps Diego Goris and Chris Burke, while Whitecaps Jeff Holm and Jason King (two) also displayed their power.

The home run derby began in the first inning when Holm homered for the Whitecaps to put the visitors up 1-0.

Fort Wayne (1-4 second half, 44-30) tied the game at one on Luis Tejada’s RBI single, but West Michigan took back the lead when King homered to make it 2-1.

Fort Wayne took the lead in the bottom of the third inning, as it scored twice with two outs.

Maxx Tissenbaum singled and Tejada followed with a double. Burke was then hit by a pitch to load the bases and Goris came through with a two-run single that put the TinCaps in front 3-2.

Joe Ross, who started for Fort Wayne, couldn’t hang on to the lead though.

West Michigan scored three times off Ross in the fifth to retake the lead and added King’s second homer of the night in the sixth to go up 6-3.

Goris ignited a TinCaps comeback in the sixth with a leadoff homer, his second long ball of the season. Later in the inning, Brian Adams plated Corey Adamson with a single to cut Fort Wayne’s deficit to 6-5. An inning later in the seventh, Burke blasted his second home run in three games to knot the score at 6-6.

Neither side would score again until the 13th.

TinCaps closer Roman Madrid (5-2) worked in a non-save situation and threw two scoreless innings in the 11th and 12th innings, but encountered trouble in the 13th.

Throwing more than two frames for the first time all season, Madrid walked Holm and allowed consecutive RBI-doubles to Zach Kirksey and Connor Harrell that gave West Michigan an 8-6 lead. Madrid then intentionally walked King and issued a free pass to Pickar to load the bases.

Joe Church came on to relieve Madrid, and he surrendered an RBI-single to David Gonzalez, extending the Whitecaps’ advantage to 9-6.

Corey Knebel, the seventh pitcher of the game for West Michigan, worked around a walk in the bottom of the 13th inning to earn the first save of his professional career.

Knebel was selected by Detroit with the 39th overall pick earlier this month. In the game, Fort Wayne left a season-high 16 runners on base.

Whitecaps 9, TinCaps 6, 13 inn.
