A West Mich. Whitecaps – W. MICH. 4, KANE CTY. 3
Tied 1-1, Best of Five

Needing a win to avoid going 2-0, Matt Joyce came to the plate in the 8th inning, with the bases juiced and the score tied. It wasn't the typical way to drive in a run, but Joyce took one right in the back to bring home the go-ahead run. Luke French got a no decision as the starter; he gave up three runs (one earned) over 5 1/3 innings. Anthony Claggett came on in the 8th and pitched a scoreless last 1 2/3 innings to secure the victory and pick up the save. The 'Caps managed just four hits on the day, but they took advantage of the ones they did get. Justin Justice had two of those, while Cameron Maybin had one with two RBI. West Michigan returns home on Thursday for game three at 7:00pm.
