The crowd cheers on Alvi Morel, who is met at home plate by teammates Matt Morizio and O.D. Gonzalez after homering in the fifth inning yesterday. Morel’s three-run shot broke a 1-all tie in the big win over the South Bend Silver Hawks.

The pre-game cermony celebrated Gabella becoming the franchise’s all-time winningest manager in the Midwest League — a mark our fourth-year manager set in April.
