— The Beloit Snappers got into the groove early and never let up here Tuesday night against the Burlington Bees.

Beloit jumped to a 3-0 lead in the first inning and went on to a 14-2 rout of the Bees in Midwest League baseball at Pohlman Field.


Michael Gonzales began a big night with an RBI double in the first inning. He had a two-run homer in Beloit’s five-run seventh to finish with three RBIs and three runs scored.


Josmil Pinto also had an RBI single in the Beloit first and a solo home run in the third en route to a three-hit, three-RBI game. Pinto scored on Lance Ray’s homer in the seventh.


Ray also finished with three RBIs, and Daniel Rams added two hits to the Snappers’ 12-hit attack, which produced 12 RBIs.


Beloit and Burlington play the third in their four-game series here at 7 tonight.
