Errors cripple Snappers against Timber Rattlers
Errors doomed the Beloit Snappers late in a game at Wisconsin on Monday.
The Snappers piled up five errors that led to five unearned runs in a 7-3 loss to the Timber Rattlers in Midwest League baseball action.
After giving up three runs—one earned—in the bottom of the sixth inning, Beloit catcher Josh Ludy hit a home run to tie the game, 3-3.
But Wisconsin got an unearned run in the bottom of the seventh and three more—one earned—runs in the eighth to pull away.

The two teams play again this afternoon.
