FORT WAYNE, IND.


The Beloit Snappers fell 7-6 to the Fort Wayne Wizards in Midwest League baseball here Wednesday night.


Beloit dropped to 12-7 for the second half and a half-game behind first-place Peoria (13-7) in the West Division.


Lance Zawadzki’s sixth-inning grand slam off reliever Danny Hernandez (0-1) wiped out the Snappers’ 4-2 lead. Aaron Parrino’s solo homer in the seventh gave the Wizards a 7-4 lead and proved to be the winning run.


Beloit bounced back in the ninth on Rene Leveret’s bases-loaded, two-run single with two outs to cut the final deficit to one run. Ozzie Lewis grounded to first to end the game.


The Snappers had 12 hits to 10 for the Wizards. Each team left nine runners on base.
