— The Beloit Snappers battled for 12 innings but could not extend their winning streak Tuesday in Midwest League baseball.

Beloit lost, 4-3, to the Clinton LumberKings to end its winning streak at four games.


The LumberKings’ Stefen Romero singled home Jetsy Extrano with the winning run. Extrano drew a walk and advanced to third base when Snappers pitcher Nelvin Fuentes made a throwing error on Mickey Wiswall’s sacrifice bunt.


Clinton scored a run in the ninth to send the game into extra innings. A single and Daniel Santana’s throwing error—his 19th—moved the tying run to third base. A sacrifice fly scored the game-tying run.
