West Michigan Whitecaps fall to Loons

West Michigan Whitecaps

PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Parker Meadows hit an inside-the-park home run Friday night at Fifth Third Ballpark, but it was not enough as West Michigan lost to Great Lakes 4-3.

Meadows smacked a Loons pitch off the right-center field fence and then raced around the bases using a headfirst slide to cross home plate. 

The Whitecaps could get no closer though.

Watch highlights above.

West Michigan opened the scoring in the bottom of the second as Avery Tuck and Wenceel Perez knocked in runs with RBI singles.  

The 2-0 lead was short lived as Great Lakes answered with a two-run home run in the top of the third.  The Loons added runs in the fourth and fifth before hanging on for the victory.

The same two teams meet again Saturday afternoon at Fifth Third Ballpark. First pitch at 4 p.m.
