The West Michigan Whitecaps offense managed just three hits in their 4-1 win over the Great Lakes Loons on Wednesday. But the club was able to take advantage of ten walks and pushed their win streak to four games.

A third-inning pitching breakdown by the Loons gave West Michigan first baseman Jose Quero an RBI after getting hit by a pitch with the bases loaded and one out. Zac Shepherd coaxed in another West Michigan run after a bases-loaded walk to make the score 2-0.

West Michigan closed out scoring in the sixth inning when Joey Morgan reached base on a wild throw to first sending home Zac Shepherd and Cole Peterson.

Winning pitcher Brad Bass went five innings and gave up just one run after back-to-back walks and an RBI single in the fourth.

The 5-1 Whitecaps conclude their four-game series against the Loons today at noon and head to Lansing on Friday to start a three-game weekend series against the Lugnuts.
