April 9, 2010
— The Beloit Snappers had to work overtime to open the Midwest League season Thursday night.

Michael Gonzales’ RBI single in the 10th inning lifted the Snappers to a 2-0 win over the Cedar Rapids Kernels in the season opener for both teams.


The two Class A teams combined to strike out 31 times in the game and managed only 11 hits in 65 at-bats.


Steven Blevins picked up the win in relief for Beloit, while Kane Holbrooks pitched a scoreless 10th to earn the save.


Cedar Rapids loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth but Luis Jimenez lined into an inning-ending double play.


Game two of three-game series is tonight.
