— Once the Beloit Snappers made it past Milwaukee Brewers’ reliever Zach Braddock, they rolled to a 7-0 victory Tuesday over the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in Midwest League baseball.

Braddock, making his second rehabilitation start for the Brewers’ farm club, held the Snappers hitless through the first three innings. Braddock is recovering from a sleep disorder problem and is expected to rejoin the Brewers this weekend after they return from their West Coast.


While Braddock had the Snappers’ number, the Beloit staff kept the lid on the Timber Rattlers. Three Snappers pitchers combined to blank the Rattlers on four hits.


Manuel Soilman (1-1) stopped Wisconsin on two hits through six innings to take the victory. The Snappers collected nine hits off three Rattlers’ pitchers through the final six innings.


The Snappers’ Michael Gonzales knocked in two runs on two hits and teammate Lance Ray hit an RBI triple.
