FORT WAYNE, Indiana (www.incnow.tv) - Jake Stewart slammed a three run homer and Jeff Holm had three hits and drove in four runs as the West Michigan Whitecaps erased an early deficit to pound the TinCaps 12-6 Sunday.

Fort Wayne scored three times in the first on a Diego Goris RBI grounder, a Chris Burke run scoring double, and Corey Adamson's RBI single.

But West Michigan got those all back in the third and then went ahead with two in the fifth, icing the game with a four run sixth highlighted by Stewart's homer.

Adamson and Dane Phillips each drove in two for the TinCaps, who will try to even the series Monday night.
