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.
