Snappers extend losing skid to 4 games

Print Article

BELOIT - The Beloit Snappers may have been the only group in the Stateline area not disappointed to see snow blanket their yard.

The Snappers could use a break after losing four straight games, the latest defeat coming to Clinton, a 7-6 defeat in 10 innings.

All four losses have been by two runs or less, with Saturday's defeat coming after Beloit held a 5-1 lead.

The Snappers scored a pair of runs in the first inning on a two-run single by Nick Osborne. After the LumberKings bounced back with a run in the second, the Snappers scored three more in the fourth, with Logan Farrar plating Marcos Brito on a sacrifice fly and Chase Calabuig reaching on an error by Clinton center fielder Connor Scott made that scored two more runs to make it 5-1.

Clinton responded with a run in the fifth, two in the seventh and one more in the eighth to tie the game at 5-5.

The LumberKings went up 6-5 in the 10th on a single from Thomas Jones, and Jones later came around to score on a wild pitch to make it 7-5.

The Snappers got one back on a sacrifice fly by John Jones, but that was all the damage Beloit could do against Clinton reliever Steven Farnworth, who earned his second save of the season.

Joe DeMers got the start for Beloit and threw 4 2-3 innings while allowing a pair of runs. Charlie Cerny (0-1) picked up the loss after allowing two runs (one earned) in two innings.

The Snappers will host Wisconsin in a three-game series scheduled to begin Monday at 6:30 p.m.
