“It’s a long season,” Whitecaps manager Andrew Graham said. “It’s a lot of these guys’ first long season. They’re starting to realize what August is about — the grind, getting tired, knowing their bodies. These guys are starting to get tired. You can see it in them. So these guys need to keep grinding.”
The Whitecaps next play the Lake County Captains in Willowick, Ohio on Monday evening.
