— The Beloit Snappers staged a five-run rally, and Mike McCardell pitched a three-hitter through eight innings in a 7-2 victory over the Peoria Chiefs in Midwest League baseball here Tuesday.

Peoria jumped on McCardell (9-3) for two runs on three hits in the first inning. McCardell then retired 21 of the next 22 batters before reliever Michael Allen pitched a perfect ninth to close out the victory.


Beloit’s Rene Leveret smacked a two-run homer in the fourth inning to tie it, 2-2.


In the fifth, Beloit combined three hits and a Peoria error to score five runs for the final outcome. Leveret smacked a two-run single with the bases loaded with a third run scoring on an error by Chiefs’ outfielder Cliff Anderson.


Leveret went 2-for-4 with five RBIs to lead the Snappers’ six-hit attack.
