— Mike Gonzales’ three-run homer in the first inning Wednesday was all the Beloit Snappers need to defeat South Bend, 5-1, in Midwest League baseball.

Gonzales’ 13th homer gave Snappers starter B.J. Hermsen (9-6) a path to victory. Hermsen allowed one run on three hits in seven innings.


Reliever Mike Tonkin blanked the Silver Hawks on two hits through the final two innings. Hermsen carried a no-hit bid through the first five innings before Ender Inciarte singled and scored on Zachary Walters’ single in the sixth.
