BELOIT - The Beloit Snappers were able to avoid history Tuesday afternoon.

They were not, however, able to avoid another defeat at Pohlman Field.

The Snappers avoided being no-hit by visiting Clinton when Joseph Pena singled with one out in the ninth inning against Clinton reliever C.J. Carter.

The Snappers went down quietly after that, and fell 5-0 for their third straight loss in two days to the LumberKings.

Beloit has scored just two runs in the three games.

The LumberKings scored all five runs in the top of the fourth inning, not leaving much action for the announced crowd of 1,942, most of which came from students from several area schools.

Bryce Nightengale allowed a leadoff double to Will Banfield to begin the fourth. After an RBI double and a run-scoring wild pitch, Thomas Jones cracked a three-run homer for Clinton to stake them to a 5-0 lead, much more insurance that starting pitcher Chris Valimont would need.

Valimont, a fifth-round pick by the Marlins in the 2018 draft, threw 106 pitches in seven no-hit innings. He allowed two walks and struck out nine. Carter was nearly as good in relief, allowing the single while striking out five of the seven hitters he faced.

Brandon Withers and Charlie Cerny combined for four innings of shutout relief in place of Nightengale (1-2), while position player Cooper Goldby pitched a scoreless ninth.

The Snappers and LumberKings will meet in the fourth game of their five-game series Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
