Slumping Snappers fall to Fort Wayne

Print Article

BELOIT - The Beloit Snappers simply can't get on track.

The Snappers lost for the 10th time in their past 11 games Thursday night, falling 8-1 to Fort Wayne in the opener of a three-game series at Pohlman Field.

Beloit's offense has been particularly putrid on this home stand, as the Snappers have scored just two runs in the three games thus far at Pohlman.

Just as they did in the opener of the homestand against Lake County, Beloit scored its lone tally in the first inning, then was blanked.

Center fielder Lester Madden cranked a home run to lead off the bottom of the first, and later added a double to account for two of Beloit's six hits.

It didn't take the Tin Caps long to retake the lead. Fort Wayne scored two runs in the second inning, three more in the third and one in the fourth to take complete command of the game. Fort Wayne did all its early damage against Snappers starter Chase Cohen (3-4).

Gabe Mosser moved to 2-1 for Fort Wayne after going six innings and allowing the lone run.

A pair of Tin Caps combined to retire the Snappers in order in each of the final three innings while the Fort Wayne offense added a pair of runs against Beloit reliever Wandisson Charles.

Infielder Nick Ward pitched the final inning for Beloit and fared well, allowing only a walk.

The Snappers hold a record of 9-20. Only Bowie of the Eastern League and Columbus of the South Atlantic League hold worse records in all of Minor League Baseball.

• UP NEXT: Beloit and Fort Wayne will play again at 6:30 p.m. today.
