Sever, Lugnuts top TinCaps, 5-2

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Dave Sever allowed one run over six innings and the Lansing Lugnuts (6-6) used a four-run rally in the fifth inning to defeat the Fort Wayne TinCaps (6-7), 5-2, on Monday night at Parkview Field.
Trailing 1-0 entering the fifth, a Sean Ochinko single and Balbino Fuenmayor RBI double quickly tied the score against Fort Wayne starter Mike Watt (0-1). Walks to Kenny Wilson and Oliver Dominguez loaded the bases with one out and Mark Sobolewski's sacrifice fly gave Lansing a 2-1 lead. Brad Glenn followed with a two-run single to center field, knocking out Watt and giving the Lugnuts all the runs they would need.
Sever (1-1) took it from there, serving up only a Jonathan Galvez RBI single in the third inning on his way to his longest outing of the young season.
The two teams traded unearned runs in the sixth and eighth innings to close out the scoring.
Lansing closer Steve Turnbull pitched the ninth for his third save in as many chances, sealing the Lugnuts' fourth consecutive victory.
In the winning effort, Ochinko went 3-for-4 with a pair of runs scored while Glenn extended his hitting streak to 12 games.
The Lugnuts and TinCaps play the middle affair of their three-game series on Wednesday morning at 11 a.m., Lansing right-hander Chad Jenkins (0-1, 4.91) opposing Fort Wayne right-hander Dexter Carter (0-2, 7.71).
