Dinkelman stays red-hot as Beloit leads series, 2-0

Brian Dinkelman was very excited about being selected as a starter for the Western Division of the Midwest League All-Star game.

He's so excited, in fact, he hasn't stopped hitting since it happened.

Dinkelman had four hits last night and added two more hits Friday night, including a home run, as the Beloit Snappers (37-22) trounced the Burlington Bees (25-35) for the second straight night, this time 7-3.

The former NAIA Player of the Year from McKendree College had a double in the first and a solo home run, his fifth this year, in the sixth inning to help lead a red-hot Snappers' offense. Beloit has hit Burlington's pitching staff harder than Tommy Lasorda hits Ponderosa, cranking out 23 hits and scoring 17 runs over the last two games.

Dinkelman's raised his batting average to .291 and scored his team-high 41st run.

Johnny Woodard also had a big game for Beloit, collecting two hits and two RBIs. Chris Parmelee added a solo home run in the seventh to help Tyler Robertson grab his first victory of the year.

Robertson allowed four hits in five innings, striking out five and walking two. Dan Leatherman worthed three innings of scoreless relief and Jesus Carnevales allowed two runs - one earned - in the ninth inning.

Steve Singleton was removed from the game by Snappers manager Jeff Smith after not running out a flyball in the fifth inning and replaced by Yancarlos Ortiz. Ortiz made an impact in the seventh after he walked, stole second and scored with a nifty slide at home plate on an RBI single by Danny Santiesteban.

The Snappers will host Burlington on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. for another fireworks night followed by a matinee Sunday at 2 p.m. Sunday's game is already a sellout, but good seats are still available for Saturday's game against the Bees. Beloit's Brian Kirwan will take on Burlington's Hardold Mozingo Saturday.

€ NOTES: The Snappers' Wilson Ramos and Santiesteban were both 2-for-4. …On Thursday, Johnny Woodard's home run off the scoreboard netted Mary Scott $500 in the West Bend Mutual Scoreboard Smash. Scott, from San Francisco, is the third winner of the Scoreboard Smash this year.
