Austin Peterson and three relievers combined for a three-hitter as the Captains defeated Fort Wayne 6-0 on May 5 at Classic Auto Group Park.

Peterson threw six innings, gave up three hits – all singles – struckout three and walked none. He improved to 4-1 and lowered his ERA to 2.08.

Steve Hajjar (two innings) and Zane Morehouse (one inning) followed in relief.

Captains left fielder Guy Lipscomb hit a two-run single to score a run. Right fielder Justin Boyd doubled and scored twice, and second baseman Alex Mooney hit his ninth double of the season.

The Captains (16-11) have won three straight and are in second place in the Midwest League East. They stay home next week for six games against Dayton, starting May 7.
