— The Beloit Snappers defeated the host Cedar Rapids Kernels, 5-4, in 10 innings Monday in Midwest League baseball.

Andy Leer scored the Snappers’ winning run on a one-out fielder’s choice. Leer reached on a leadoff single, was sacrificed to second, and moved to third on Michael Gonzales’ single.


Beloit closer Matt Hauser allowed no runs in the 10th on one hit while striking out one and walking one to collect his fifth save. Clinton Dempster (2-2) went 2 2/3 innings out of the bullpen and allowed no runs on two hits while striking out one and walking none for the victory.


The Snappers led 4-0 until the Kernels rallied for four runs in the seventh to tie the game.


Beloit had 13 hits, including Daniel Santana’s first-inning solo home run to give the Snappers a 1-0 lead.
