— Yangervis Solarte rescued the Beloit Snappers on Thursday night.

Solarte singled with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to drive in Gregory Yersich as the Snappers rallied for a 3-2 win over the Kane County Cougars in Midwest League baseball at Pohlman Field.


The Cougars scored a run in the top of the ninth to take a 2-1 lead, but the Snappers pulled out the win with two in their half of the inning. Allan de San Miguel tied the game with an RBI double to set up Solarte’s heroics.


Michael Tarsi (6-11) picked up the win in relief.


Beloit will wrap up the season with a four-game series at home, beginning tonight against Burlington.
