Print Article

BOWLING GREEN, Kent. - The Beloit Snappers have themselves an actual winning streak.

The Snappers, who have struggled mightily all season, won their second straight game Wednesday night when they rallied from an early 5-0 deficit to defeat Bowling Green 9-8.

Beloit starting pitcher Aiden McIntyre was tagged for five runs in the first inning, but the Snappers bounced right back with a five-spot of their won in the top of the second.

The first five hitters of the inning singled for Beloit, while Cobie Vance had a two-run double for the inning's big blow.

After the Hot Rods scored twice in the third to take a 7-5 lead, the Snappers bounced back again, this time scoring three times in the sixth inning to lead 8-7, with a John Jones two-run double tying the game.

The lead was short-lived, as the Hot Rods scored the tying run in the bottom of the inning, but the Snappers scored the game's deciding run when Jones walked with the bases loaded to make it 9-8.

Josh Reagan (1-1) picked up the win after allowing one run in two innings. Brandon Withers earned his second save of the season after throwing the final three innings without allowing a run.

The Snappers and Hot Rods will meet in game two of their series Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
