Snappers offense shut down
A big inning bit the Beloit Snappers on Sunday.
The Quad Cities River Bandits scored four runs in the third to end a difficult outing for Snappers starter Joey Wagman, who allowed six runs in 2 2/3 innings.
Aside from one hiccup—a solo home run for Beloit shortstop Melvin Mercedes in the fourth—Quad Cities pitching silenced the Snapper lineup, allowing just four hits and no walks. Michael Feliz, Chris Lee and Chris Cotton combined to strike out 11 Beloit batters.
After an off day today, the Snappers have a three-game home series against Cedar Rapids starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
