Captains Need One Win For Title
Mike Rayl, Jeremy Johnson and Preston Guilmet finished up as the Captains regained control of the series with an impressive triumph.
Brach worked both corners with his fastball, getting ahead in the count and forcing Lumberkings batters to swing at his pitch -- or often get caught looking at a called third strike on the outside corner.
Holt, hitting second in manager Ted Kubiak's suddenly recharged batting order, sparked the offense. The June draft pick out of Florida State went 2-for-2 with two walks, a solo homer, two RBI, three runs and a stolen base.
No. 7 and 8 hitters Smit and Folgia hit consecutive solo homers into the left-field bleachers in the second inning to give the Captains a 4-0 lead.
The Captains can claim the championship in their first season in the Class A Midwest League with a win tonight at Classic Ballpark. Lake County moved from the South Atlantic League this season, won a first-half division title, but barely played above .500 in the second half. Then the Captains won consecutive playoff series to advance to the title round.
If a Game 5 is needed, the Captains would host it Monday night at 6:30 p.m.
