The game between the ‘Caps and Lake County Captains was tied 2-2 at the end of the third inning, and there wouldn’t be another run scored for hours. Lake County managed to score in the 17th inning, but the Whitecaps would answer with a run of their own.
Then in the bottom of the 18th inning, the ‘Caps had the bases loaded with two outs, and a full count. Lake County’s pitcher didn’t put one over the plate, resulting in a walk…and a game-winning run. West Michigan walks into the record books, winning their longest game in franchise history with a score of 4-3.
