The Lake County Captains were able to break free of a three game losing skid on Sunday afternoon with a 10-6 victory over the Cedar Rapids Kernels.

Wallace’s decision to hand the pill to Sterling proved to be just what the doctor ordered for a Captains team that had been scuffling on this road swing.
