Offensively, Casey McGehee led the way with three hits and five RBI. Chad Huffman and Steven Moya both homered for Toledo.

McGehee: 3-4, 2 2B, R, 5 RBI

Brevard County first baseman Dustin DeMuth hit a double and a home run, and drove in five runs to pace the Manatees' offense, while the Flying Tigers managed just one extra base hit as a team. Starter Jeff Thompson struck out seven, but allowed three runs in five innings before departing. Kade Scivicque had three hits for Lakeland, and Christin Stewart reached base three times.

The Whitecaps took a 2-1 deficit into the top of the eighth, but a Will Allen RBI single with two outs scored two runs to tie the game. Rashad Brown gave West Michigan the lead on a sacrifice fly in the ninth, and the Whitecaps padded their lead with a second run in the inning.
