Whitecaps blast 5th homer of season in 5-2 win

Shane Zeile‘s line-drive two-run homer in the sixth inning turned out to be just what the West Michigan Whitecaps needed as they beat the Bowling Green Hot Rods 5-2 Tuesday night on the road.

Derek Hill scored on a first-inning single by Will Maddox. Will Allen tied the game with an RBI-double in the sixth before Zeile’s homer hit the left field foul pole.

Jordan Smith (4-2) picked up his fourth victory of the season. Jake Shull record his sixth save.
