After letting a late lead slip away Tuesday night Danry Vasquez helped West Michigan gain a lead far too great for Lake County to overcome on Wednesday as the Whitecaps topped the Captains 10-1. Vasquez had a huge day at the plate, driving in four runs and hitting a triple on a 4-for-5 night. Six West Michigan batters drove in at least one run in the win. Starter Edgar De La Rosa took a no decision after giving up one earned run on four hits in four innings of work. Josh Turley improved his record to 3-1 after not allowing a hit and striking out three in two innings of relief.
