— A four-run seventh inning and a three-run ninth carried the Clinton LumberKings to a 10-5 Midwest League victory over the Beloit Snappers on Monday night at Pohlman Field.

The two big Clinton innings offset Beloit’s five-run second-inning outburst, the only inning in which the Snappers were able to score. Dominic De La Osa’s two-run double highlighted the Snappers’ uprising. Ramon Santana had a two-run single for Beloit.


Nate Tenbrink had two hits for Clinton, including his second home run of the series.


The teams are scheduled to complete their three-game series with a 7 p.m. battle tonight.
