Snappers end skid at home

Print Article

BELOIT - Thanks to an outstanding effort on the mound, the Beloit Snappers broke a five-game losing streak Saturday night with a 10-1 victory over Fort Wayne at Pohlman Field.

Snappers starting pitcher Bryce Conley was the star on Saturday, as the 24-year-old hurler threw six no-hit innings before being removed from the game.

Conley allowed just two walks while striking out four. He threw 87 pitches, 53 of them going for strikes.

While Conley was befuddling the Tin Caps lineup, the Snappers slowly but surely put the game out of reach.

Beloit broke a scoreless tie in the fourth when Anthony Churlin doubled home Payton Squier.

Cobie Vance made it 2-0 in the bottom of the fifth with an RBI grounder, and the a Noah Vaughan RBI grounder and a wild pitch made it 4-0 after six frames.

The Snappers put an exclamation point on the win in the eighth when they scored five times, the highlights includng an RBI double by Skyler Weber, an RBI triple by Vaughan and a two-run single by Lester Madden.

Although Beloit reliever Angelo Infante allowed a single to the first batter he saw in the seventh to lose the no-hitter, he pitched three effective innings of relief to earn his first save of the season.

After a league-wide day off for Mother's Day on Sunday, the Snappers will head to Peoria to start a four-game series beginning Monday with a doubleheader starting at 5 p.m.
