BELOIT - A pair of ninth-inning runs gave the Cedar Rapids Kernels a 4-2 win over Beloit Thursday at Pohlman Field. With the game tied at 2-2, Snappers pitcher Charlie Cerny had nearly worked himself out of a nasty jam in the ninth.

With runners on second and third and one out, Beloit shortstop Max Schuemann cut down Tyler Webb at the plate to keep the score knotted.

After Cerny walked Gilberto Celestino to load the bases, Gabe Snyder cracked a two-run double to provide the difference in the game.

Rickey Ramirez came on in the bottom of the inning to retire the Snappers in order to record his fourth save of the season.

The Snappers jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning when Schuemann doubled to lead off the inning and later came around to score on a Cedar Rapids error. Nick Osborne doubled home Devin Foyle to give Beloit starter Aiden McIntyre a two-run cushion. Cedar Rapids tied the game in the third when, directly after the Snappers allowed the Kernels to escape a pickel situation, Daniel Ozoria hit his first home run of the season, a two-run blast to make it 2-2.

McIntyre pitched well for the Snappers, allowing just the two runs in six frames. Josh Reagan pitched two scoreless innings out of the bullpen before Cerny (2-3) suffered the loss.

The Snappers will close their homestand with a game against the Kernels at 6:30 p.m. Friday.
