Wilson White leads the Caps to their first victory of the season.  White goes all 7 giving up just 1 run on 4 hits while striking out 7.  All the offense came in the 5th inning starting with a single by So. Jackson Williams, a walk to Jr. Braden Williamson, another single by Fr. Dom Ford, a Huge 2 RBI single by So. Rob Case and then Jr. Wilson White tacked on another 2 runs with a 2 RBI single.  The 4 run inning proved to be too much as White closed out the final 3 innings.  White showed great leadership and resilience working out of trouble in both the 5th (surrendered 1 run) and 6th innings.  The Caps look forward to taking this momentum into next Monday as they take on Riverside at Wiley Warren Field

Caps have lead through the 5th and then the wheels fall off
Game Photos Click Here

The Caps played 5 great innings carrying a 4-2 lead into the 6th.  Then Millbrook scored 10 runs in 2 innings as the Caps were held scoreless for a final score of 12-4.  Joe Bialkowski showed great poise on the mound and Garret Willamson had a great game behind the plate but it was not enough to overcome the late inning troubles.  The Caps have been outscored 23-0 in the final 3 innings this year.  This disturbing trend has hindered a talented team too long.   The ability is certainly there but the leadership has not emerged from the young squad.  If the Caps have any hope to turn this year around it is time for the players to step up and be accountable.
