Rattlers shut out Snappers

Print Article

BELOIT - The Beloit Snappers' bid to string together back-to-back wins fell well short of the mark Tuesday in an ugly 8-0 Midwest League loss to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers at Polhman Field.

The game was essentially decided in a disastrous top of the sixth inning, when the Snappers allowed six runs.

Wisconsin led just 1-0 in a certified pitchers dual heading into the six-run explosion, which included four walks, three hits and a hit batsman.

Bryce Nightengale suffered the majority of the damage, allowing six runs in just an inning of work.

Adam Reuss (0-2) was a tough-luck loser after allowing just a single unearned run in 4 2-3 innings of work.

The Timber Rattlers scored their only run before the sixth inning on a wild pitch by Reuss which allowed Yeison Coca to score in the first inning.

The Rattlers capped the scoring in the seventh on an RBI grounder by Je`Von Ward.

The Snappers banged out six hits, all singles, and went 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position, leaving seven men on base.

Wilfred Salaman (1-2) picked up the victory after going five scoreless innings.

The two teams will meet in the rubber match of their three-game series Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
