Print Article

GENEVA, Ill. — The Beloit Snappers came up short in their longest game since June of 2014, losing 1-0 to Kane County Wednesday afternoon.

The game began at 11 a.m., but was interrupted by a rain shower in the top of the second inning. After a 2 hour and 40 minute delay, the game finally got back underway.

Both teams ran out of pitchers, as Kane County first baseman Ryan Smith hurled two scoreless innings to pick up the win, and Snappers outfielder Kyle Nowlin was saddled with the loss after giving up an unearned run in the 17th.

With two outs and a runner on first in the 17th, Jason Morozowksi singled and Ramon Hernandez scored all the way from first base after left fielder Cole Gruber booted the ball.

The Snappers had an outstanding day on the mound, lowering their team ERA to a solid 3.28 as Dalton Sawyer pitched four scoreless innings while Will Gilbert, Andrew Tomasovich and Xavier Altamarino each threw three scoreless frames.

Outfielder Gruber came on to throw two scoreless innings before Nowlin appeared in the 17th.

• NOTES: The Snappers will open a seven-game homestand Thursday when they host the Burlington Bees at 6:30 p.m. It’s Thirsty Thursday at Pohlman Field, with 12-ounce beers being sold for $2, while hot dogs and nachos are available for $1.
