— Monday’s getaway game was a success for the Beloit Snappers.

Lance Ray’s two-run homer, his first with the Snappers, proved to be the game-winner in Beloit’s 3-1 Midwest League win over the Lansing Lugnuts at Pohlman Field.


Beloit trailed 1-0 in the fourth before Ray blasted his first home run of the season to give the Snappers the lead for good at 2-1. The Snappers added an insurance run on Danny Rams’ RBI triple in the eighth.


Clinton Dempster (1-0) picked up the win with three innings of scoreless relief, while Andrei Lobanov worked 1-2-3 in the ninth to earn his first save.


Beloit is off tomorrow before beginning a three-game series at South Bend on Wednesday night.
