— It was better late than never Sunday afternoon for the Beloit Snappers.

Beloit scored nine runs in the top of the eighth inning to erase a 7-0 deficit and held on for a 10-8 Midwest League win over the Clinton LumberKings.


Michael Gonzales and Nate Roberts keyed the nine-run rally with two RBIs each. The Snappers (13-8) sent 14 batters to the plate in the eighth.


Clinton Dempster (1-1) picked up the win in relief for Beloit, while Matthew Hauser earned his third save of the season by recording the final two outs of the game.
