Print Article

LANSING, Mich. - All the Beloit Snappers needed to do was travel to Michigan in order to wake up their slumbering bats.

The Snappers, in an offensive slump for the past two weeks, posted their second consecutive terrific offensive outing Thursday, posting a come-from-behind, 7-6 win at Lansing.

Beloit trailed 6-4 heading into the eighth inning, but scored twice in the eighth to tie the game and once in the ninth to go ahead.

Jesus Lopez brought Beloit within 6-5 with a sacrifice fly in the eighth to plate Kyle Nowlin, and Jason Goldstein delivered a run-scoring single to plate Collin Theroux with the tying run. '

Nowlin came through with the go-ahead RBI in the ninth, singling to plate Trace Loehr in the ninth.

Yordys Alejo, who came on to begin the eighth inning, closed out the game with a scoreless ninth to earn the win and move to 3-3 on the season.

After Lansing scored a run in the bottom of the first, Beloit came back with four runs in the second. Goldstein had an RBI single, as did Mike Martin. Loehr, Thursday's hitting star with a 4-for-5 night, hit a two-run triple to make it 4-1.

Lansing scored single tallies in the third, fifth and sixth innings before scoring twice in the seventh to take the 6-4 lead.

The Snappers will go for the three-game sweep Friday at 6 p.m.
