Print Article

BURLINGTON, Iowa - The Beloit Snappers dropped to 4-4 on the season after a frustrating 6-5 loss in which they out-hit the Bees 11-6 Thursday afternoon.

Besides the 11 hits, the Snappers drew seven walks and were helped out by three Burlington errors while they didn't commit a fielding miscue.

The Bees turned the game around in the sixth inning. Trailing 3-1, Burlington pushed across four runs, three of them coming on a double by Harrison Wenson that gave Burlington the lead. Michael Stefanic followed with an RBI single to make it 5-3.

The Snappers battled back, scoring a run on a Payton Squier RBI single in the seventh to make it 5-4. Beloit tied the game in the eighth on a Lester Madden sacrifice fly, but Stefanic struck again in the bottom of the eighth with an RBI single to bring home the go-ahead run.

Squier finished the game with three hits, while Madden increased his hitting streak to eight with a single.

Bryce Conley got the start for the Snappers and was terrific, allowing just two hits and one run over five innings. Brandon Withers (0-2) took the loss for Beloit after giving up the eighth inning run.

The Snappers head home to face Clinton in the first of a three-game series Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Pohlman Field.
