— The Beloit Snappers saved their best for last Thursday night at Fox Cities Stadium.

With a three-run ninth inning, Beloit overcame a 3-2 deficit and gained a 5-3 victory over the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in Midwest League baseball.


Lance Ray’s two-run double was the clinching blow against the Milwaukee Brewers’ Class A affiliate. That came after Aaron Hicks walked, Steve Liddle singled and Danny Rams singled home the tying run.


Beloit had grabbed a brief 2-0 lead on James Beresford’s two-run double in the third, but the Timber Rattlers came back with a run in the fourth and two in the seventh.


Miguel Minoz (10-5) finished off the Rattlers with two innings of hitless relief in becoming the winning pitcher.


Beloit opens a four-game series tonight at Burlington, Iowa.
