Snappers split two games with LumberKings

Print Article

BELOIT - The Beloit Snappers stopped their losing streak at three games, but failed to start a winning streak of their own Thursday night at Pohlman Field.

The Snappers came from behind to defeat Clinton 11-6 in the resumption of a suspended game, then followed that with a 3-2 loss in a seven-inning game.

The game resumed with the LumberKings leading 3-0 in the top of the second inning. Clinton immediately extended the lead to 5-0 with a pair of runs in the second, then added another in the third to make it 6-0.

Given that the Snappers had scored three runs in the first three games against the LumberKings, things weren't looking promising.

But Beloit responded with three runs in the third, including a two-run single by JJ Schwarz, to get back into the game. The score remained 6-3 until the bottom of the sixth, when a Marcos Brito RBI single made it 6-4.

Beloit took the lead with three runs in the seventh, all coming with two outs. A single by Skyler Weber brought the deficit to 6-5, and Max Schuemann and Brito followed with RBI singles to vault Beloit ahead.

The Snappers added four runs in the eighth, with the big blow coming on a three-run homer by Schwarz. Adam Reuss worked five innings and allowed three runs, while Michael Danielak (1-0) picked up the win and Eric Marinez notched his seventh save of the season.

In game two, the LumberKings again struck early, scoring a run in the first to take the lead. They put up two more runs against Aiden McIntyre thanks to a costly error by third baseman Cobie Vance to make it 3-0.

The Snappers made some noise in the seventh, scoring twice on a single by Joseph Pena, but couldn't rally back for the win.

• UP NEXT: Beloit will head to Kane County on Friday for the first of a four-game series, with first pitch scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
