Daniel Ortiz went 3-for-5, but the Beloit Snappers fell at Kane County, 8-4, in Midwest League action Tuesday.


Ortiz hit his seventh homer of the season in the sixth inning. Daniel Santana hit his third homer of the year, but the Snappers could not overcome Kane County’s 13-hit attack. The Cougars led 8-1 after five innings.


Only three of the six runs Kane County scored off Beloit starter Andrei Lobanov were earned.


The two teams meet tonight and Thursday night. The Snappers then return home for a three-game series against Quad Cities.
