— Brett Eibner’s three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning was the difference Thursday night in Kane County’s 4-3 win over the Beloit Snappers in Midwest League baseball.

Beloit built a 3-1 lead in the eighth, thanks to Daniel Ortiz’s eighth home run of season, but Kane County rallied with two outs in the bottom of the inning to take the lead. The Snappers went 1-2-3 in the ninth.


Game 2 of the three-game series is tonight. Beloit hosts the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in a three-game series beginning Saturday at Pohlman Field.
