— Michael Harrington was a one-man wrecking crew for the Beloit Snappers on Sunday afternoon.

Harrington had four hits and drove in four runs to lead the Snappers to a 9-7 win over the Cedar Rapids Kernels in a Midwest League game. The game was delayed for 1:29 due to heavy rain.


Cedar Rapids took a 2-0 lead into the fifth before Beloit rallied with three runs in the top of the inning. Harrington drove in the tying run with an RBI single, and Angel Morales gave Beloit the lead for good with a sacrifice fly.


Blake Martin (3-1) picked up the win in relief of Brian Pugh. Billy Bullock earned his third save of the season after striking out both batters he faced in the ninth.


The two teams wrap up the five-game series with a game at noon today.
