TinCaps On The Field

  • The TinCaps have won six of their last 10 games, including two straight on the road against West Division-leading Beloit.
  • Starting pitcher Joe Ross, 20, won Sunday’s game with six scoreless innings, while starting pitcher Walker Weickel, 19, won Monday’s game with six innings of three-run ball.
  • Friday night Fort Wayne will face Quad Cities starter Mark Appel, who was selected last month by the Houston Astros with the No. 1 overall pick in the MLB Draft. The River Bandits also have the 2012 No. 1 overall selection, shortstop Carlos Correa. It’s the first time in the history of Minor League Baseball that consecutive No. 1 overall picks are on the same team.

  • “The President’s doomsday scenarios are of his own choosing,” Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., argued in response to Cutter’s email. “The sequester will cut 2.3 percent, or $85 billion, from the massive $3.55 trillion the federal government is projected to spend this year alone. To put that percentage in perspective, we borrow that much money every 28 days. If the President can’t cut that much, he’ll never cut anything.”

  • One thing we always check for when coming into a new city, is construction cranes on the horizon. Lack of cranes on a city's horizon suggests complacency and lack of progress or movement. To the cranes at Project Emerald Skyline, welcome back, old friends! Photo taken Friday, June 19, 2015, from the Lincoln Tower. #progress #cityonthemove
