B.J. Boyd's bat was the difference for the second night in a row for the Beloit Snappers.

Boyd hit a two-run home run in the top of the third inning to break a 1-1 tie and lift Beloit to a 5-2 win over Quad Cities in a Midwest League game. The two-run homer was the second in as many games for Boyd.

Beloit, which got six solid innings from starter Matt Stalcup (4-3), added insurance runs in the sixth and seventh.
