Adam Brett Walker’s two run homer
gives Kernels 2-1 win over Fort Wayne
Fort Wayne, IN – Adam Brett Walker hit a two run home run as Mason Melotakis won his eighth
game and David Hurlbut notched his sixth save as the Kernels beat Fort Wayne, 2-1 on Sunday
afternoon.
Walker’s homer was his 21st of the season and was hit to dead center feld. The Kernels had eight
hits in the game as Jonathan Murphy went 2-3 and Jorge Polanco was 2-4 with a double. Melotakis
(8-3) allowed a run on four hits and struck out six over six innings pitched. Hurlbut worked three
innings for his sixth save and struck out three.
Fort Wayne starter Joe Ross (4-5) took the loss, allowing two runs on seven hits and striking out
three over 6 IP. Bryan Adams was 1-3 with an RBI for the Tincaps.
Kernels infelder Niko Goodrum left the game at the end of the fourth inning, as he appeared to
injure his right knee covering second base on a stolen base. His status is day to day.
The Kernels will go for the series win Monday night at Parkview Field in Fort Wayne as Jose Berrios
(5-5) starts for the Kernels against RHP Walker Weickel (3-4, 4.66) for the Tincaps. First pitch is
set for 6:05 pm.
The Kernels return to Perfect Game Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium to open a six-game home
stand against Peoria and Clinton starting Wednesday, July 24th.
