— The hot weather made the Beloit Snappers’ bats sizzle Monday afternoon in a 16-3 victory over the West Michigan Whitecaps in Midwest League baseball.

Beloit led 2-1 after four innings, then blew the game open with a pair of four-run outbursts in the fifth and sixth innings for a 10-1 lead.


The Snappers pounded out 19 hits, including two-run homers from Lance Ray and Toby Streich, and a solo shot from Adam Bryant. Wang-Wie Lin and Bryant had four hits apiece, with Bryant notching four RBIs.


Beloit starter B.J. Hermsen (10-6) allowed one run on five hits through seven innings for the victory.
