BELOIT -Three first-inning runs ended up being all the Burlington Bees would need Wednesday night at Pohlman Field. The Bees defeated the Beloit Snappers 3-2 to take the second straight game in the series.

The game got off to a slow start for the Snappers, as Snappers second baseman Joseph Pena committed an error on the first play of the game. The Bees then put together back-to-back singles to load the bases with nobody out against Snappers starter Aidan McIntyre.

After McIntyre recorded a strikeout, he walked in the game's first run. After another strikeout, McIntyre walked two more runs in to make it 3-0.

The Snappers got a run back in the second inning when Logan Farrar's two-out single scored Anthony Churlin to make it 3-1.

The Snappers got to within 3-2 in the sixth inning when Churlin walked and was doubled in by Lester Madden.

The Snappers would reach base just twice in the final three innings to fall to 1-4 on the current homestand.

McIntyre ended up going three innings and allowing the three unearned runs to fall to 1-4. Brandon Withers (2 1-3 innings), Ty Damron (2 2-3 innings) and Eric Marinez (one inning) were flawless out of the bullpen in six innings of work.

The Snappers and Bees will meet in the series finale Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

• ALL-STARS ANNOUNCED: The Beloit Snappers have a pair of Midwest League All-Stars on their squad, it was announced by the league Wednesday.

AIdan McIntyre, Wednesday's losing pitcher, was named to the team along with reliever Eric Marinez.

McIntyre carries a 1-4 record but a stellar 2.70 ERA. He has struck out 59 in just 40 1-3 innings of work, and opponents are batting just .197 against him.

Marinez has been a stalwart out of the Beloit bullpen all season. He carries a 3-2 record with a 2.52 ERA. Marinez is 8-for-8 in save opportunities, and has 35 strikeouts in 25 innings.

Marinez was with the Snappers back in 2017, when he was the team's starting shortstop.

The All-Star game will be played in South Bend, Ind., on Tuesday, June 18.
