Kernels belted by Fort Wayne

FORT WAYNE, Ind. - The Cedar Rapids Kernels and Fort Wayne TinCaps were tied 4-4 after two innings Friday night, but the rest of the ballgame belonged to the hosts from Indiana.

Fort Wayne dumped the Kernels, 10-4, before 8,095 fans in a Midwest League game at Parkview Field.

Kernels starter Randy Rosario was touched for six runs in four innings, then Ethan Mildren surrendered four more runs in two innings as Cedar Rapids fell hopelessly behind.

Michael Theofanopoulos struck out six batters and did not allow any hits in the final two innings for the Kernels, but it was too late by then.

Edgar Corcino led the Kernels with two hits. Nick Gordon collected his 18th double and Brian Navarreto hit his first triple of the season and drove in two runs.

Michael Gettys collected two doubles and a triple in the leadoff spot for Fort Wayne.

Cedar Rapids (68-49) and Fort Wayne (62-53) meet again at 6:05 p.m. Saturday.
