Whitecaps win Midwest League Championship

Congratulations to the West Michigan Whitecaps on their MWL Championship. The Caps won the rubber game in a best of 5 series 11-6 over the Beloit Snappers.

It was a night of big innings as West Michigan used an 8 run 5th inning to wipe out the Beloit 5 run 3rd inning.

Scott Sizemore and Michael Bertram each had 3 hits to lead the offensive attack.

Charlie Furbush was knocked out in that 3rd inning and Luis Marte came on in relief and threw 5 shutout innings allowing just 2 hits and no walks while fanning 9.

Congratulations to manager Tom Brookens and the rest of this year’s Whitecaps.

    Watched several games this year and the ‘Caps have a good tradition (if also a lousy mascot name)….congrats to Scott Lane, Jim Jarecki and the entire crew in Comstock Park. Brookens is also a great guy, having met him at Fantasy Camp and has done a stellar job for a couple years in a row now.
    The future is bright as Tiger farm clubs keep winning…
