Verastegui walks home a Lugnuts victory

The West Michigan Whitecaps could not overcome a pair of walks in the eleventh inning with the bases loaded and the Lansing Lugnuts won 5-3 Sunday afternoon at Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park, MI.

7,602 announce fans saw the Whitecaps score in the first and second innings on a throwing error to score Derek Hill and a run-scoring single by David Gonzalez. Lansing would score the next three runs before Cam Gibson‘s sixth-inning triple and run scored on a throwing error by Lansing.

Adenson Verastegui (0-2) struggled in the eleventh. First loading the bases and then walking two consecutive batters with two outs to allow two runs. Verastegui only threw 35 pitches before being pulled from the game.

The Whitecaps are now 35-25.
