Beloit collects split

Print Article

CLINTON, Iowa —  The Beloit Snappers bounced back from a heart-breaking game one loss to coast to a big victory in game two to post a doubleheader split against Clinton Tuesday night.

Austin House was sensational for the Snappers in game one. The Beloit starter had a no-hitter broken up to lead off the sixth inning, but the Beloit offense could muster just one hit behind him, a first-inning two-out double by Bruce Maxwell.

The game ended when House walked Jordan Lara with one out in the seventh and Taylor Ard doubled him home with the game’s only run.

Thankfully for the Snappers game two was a much different story. Starting pitcher Brent Powers, just activated before the game when outfield Rashaun Dixon was promoted to Stockton, allowed three first-inning runs but then settled down.

The 3-0 deficit didn’t last long for the Snappers. They scored once in the second, once in the third and put up three run in the fourth to wrest control of the game away from Clinton. Ryan Mathews had a two-run double and Christopher Bostick added an RBI double later in the inning to give Beloit the lead.

They erased any thought of a Lumberjacks comeback with a five-run seventh inning. Sam Roberts delivered the big hit in the inning, a two-run double that accounted for the final margin.

Powers ended up pitching five innings to pick up the victory while Ryan Dull and Tucker Healy each worked scoreless frames to finish things up.

The Snappers and Cougars will meet in game three of their series Wednesday.
