The West Michigan Whitecaps improved to a season-best 30 games over .500 with a 6-2 come-from-behind victory over the Great Lakes Loons Sunday afternoon at Dow Diamond in Midland.

The Whitecaps are now 54-24 on the season, with a 9-2 record to begin the second half of the 2017 season. The last time West Michigan enjoyed a record 30 games over the break-even mark was in 2014.

Anthony Pereira gave the Whitecaps a 1-0 lead with an RBI-single in the third inning before the Loons quickly took a 2-1 lead.

The score remained the same until the eighth, when Cole Bauml’s two-out RBI-single scored Danny Woodrow and tied the game 2-2.

In the ninth, the Caps busted the game wide-open with a four-run inning. Chad Sedio and Drew Longley opened the frame with back-to-back doubles to give West Michigan a 3-2 lead before Sam Machonis delivered a run-scoring single and Pereira capped a big day with a two-run double down the third base line to bring the score to 6-2.

The Whitecaps will conclude their four-game set with the Loons Monday at 7:05 p.m.
