A West Mich. Whitecaps – W. MICH. 3, PEORIA 1
25-13, 1st in Eastern division

Jeff Gerbe, Charles Furbush and Brett Jensen combined to two-hit Peoria Wednesday as the Whitecaps won 3-1. Making his first start since coming off of the DL, Gerbe pitched three perfect innings on 27 pitches in a limited outing. Charles Furbush entered in the fourth, and after giving up a lead-off single, did not allow another hit until a two-out triple from Wellington Castillo in the eighth that may have been caught had right fielder Jeramy Laster not slipped. A passed ball that allowed Castillo to score an unearned run was Furbush's only blemish as he picked up the win, going five innings and striking out three. Brett Jensen sent the side down in order in the ninth with two strike outs for his 20th save. James Skelton had a hand in all of West Michigan's runs, as he scored on a Ryan Strieby single in the first, knocked in Scott Sizemore on a base hit in the sixth and scored again on a Jordon Newton single later in the inning. The series concludes Thursday at 7:00 p.m., with Jonah Nickerson scheduled to start.
