Kernels Bite Back to Win Finale
The Snappers lost the final game of the six game series with the Cedar Rapids Kernels, 6-2 on Thursday night. Jesus Carnevales pitched a third of an inning and allowed two runs to pick up his first loss of the season.
The Snappers struck first in the bottom of the second inning on a Wilson Ramos RBI groundout. Ramos' RBI gave Beloit a 1-0 lead after two.
Beloit scored another run in the bottom of the fourth inning to take a 2-0 lead. Wilson Ramos had his second RBI groundout of the night to push the Snappers ahead by two.
That would be all the scoring that the Snappers would do, however. The Kernels scored in the sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth to take control of the game and eventually win, 6-2.
Beloit starter, Brian Kirwan, pitched six strong innings of three hit, one run baseball but picked up a no-decision.
The Snappers' record dropped to 42-25.
