FORT WAYNE, IN (WKZO) -- West Michigan Whitecaps pitcher Jon Maciel can now be talked about in the same breath as Randy Johnson. Maciel killed a bird with a pitch on Sunday as the Whitecaps took on Fort Wayne in Indiana.

While Johnson's fastball caused an explosion of feathers in a Spring Training game in 2001, it took a few replays for the Fort Wayne television crew to notice Maciel's pitch hit a bird, even after the groundskeeper picked it up.

he Whitecaps won Sunday's game, 7-6, to sweep the three-game series against the TinCaps.
