The TinCaps advance in the playoffs off the strength of 15 hits and 3 home runs. Yet again, the bullpen played a crucial role in tonight’s game as the starter, James Needy, didn’t make it through 3 innings. Besides a rocky outing for Dennis O’Grady, the TinCaps pen shut the Captains down, and only allowed 4 hits and struck out 4 over 4 innings.
