Captains finally beat Whitecaps at home, 8-7
It took one of the wackiest games of the season for Lake County (26-28) to finally end its five-game losing skid, defeating West Michigan (25-30) 8-7 to avoid the sweep. As the old adage goes, you never know what you are going to get in baseball. That was the case in the eighth inning of Friday night’s contest at Classic Park.

On-Deck with the Captains: 5/24/12 - 5/30/12
After starting the week 3-0, the Captains went into a tailspin and finished the week at 3-4. The hitting improved from late week but the pitching was not very good and has struggled some of late. Lianna Holub takes a look at the week that was for the Captains in her weekly notebook "On-Deck with the Captains".

Sterling rocked by the Lugnuts, 14-7
The Lake County Captains (25-25) were lit up again by the Lansing Lugnuts (36-14) offense for the second night in the row. Lansing had 19 hits on the night, which provided plenty of fireworks for Memorial Day. Felix Sterling (2-4, 5.90) came to Cooley Law School Stadium on Monday thinking he would move past his last outing of 12 runs in less than three innings against West Michigan.

Morimando lasted just three innings, surrendering five runs on seven hits and two walks. Only four of the runs were earned

Wallace happy to be a Captain again
Dave Wallace was a catcher in the Indians minor league system a few years ago, and his best season as a player came during a short stop during Low-A Lake County's inaugural season in 2003. Since then he had not been back to Lake County until this year when he returned as the manager and with a whole new perspective.
