YESTERDAY: The TinCaps beat the Whitecaps, 5-3. In his first start with the team, Colton Vincent went 3-for-3, including what proved to be the game-winning RBI single in the top of the ninth that broke a 3-3 tie. Vincent was also hit by a pitch and scored a run in the game. Tyler Robertson had 2 hits, including a double that led off the ninth.

260 TO THE SHOW: Lefty Robert Gasser, who started 18 games for the TinCaps in 2022, made his MLB debut with the Brewers Friday night, tossing 6 shutout innings in a win over the Cardinals. He’s the 223rd alum in franchise history to reach the big leagues, including 42 on MLB rosters so far this season. Coincidentally, Gasser joins a Brewers team that’s managed by Pat Murphy (father of TinCaps outfielder Kai Murphy) and also includes Joe Ross and Colin Rea in the rotation, both of whom were TinCaps in 2012 and ’13. Milwaukee also currently has first baseman Jake Bauers (a 2014 TinCap), while infielder Owen Miller (2018) has also been up with them… Gasser was traded to the Brewers as part of the Josh Hader deal.

RIP: Former Fort Wayne Wizards third baseman Sean Burroughs suddenly passed away Thursday at the age of 43. In 1999, as an 18-year-old, he set several franchise records that still hold, including AVG (.359), OBP (.464), and a 56-game on-base streak. The Midwest League All-Star made his MLB debut with the Padres in 2002 and spent 7 seasons in the bigs with the Rays, Diamondbacks, and Twins as well… This has been a tough stretch for the club as Kathy Winter, the wife of TinCaps head groundskeeper Keith Winter, passed away from ALS on May 3… Lois Kohlepp, a ticket-taker at Parkview Field, died in a car accident on April 15… Fort Wayne’s long-time mayor, Tom Henry, died from cancer on March 28… And in November, Padres owner Peter Seidler also passed after battling cancer.

CLOSE CALLS: Of Fort Wayne’s first 14 games, only 1 was decided by more than 3 runs… In all now, the ‘Caps have played 10 one-run games, 8 two-run games, and 2 three-run games… The TinCaps also have played 5 extra-inning games (most in MWL).

DEFENSE: TinCaps catchers…
