— A memorable Memorial Day left the Beloit Snappers in a good mood for a long bus ride.

Before taking off on a lengthy trip to Dayton, Ohio, the Snappers pulled out a 2-1 win in eight innings here Monday to complete a holiday doubleheader sweep of Clinton that started with a 7-1 victory for Beloit.


The Snappers won three of four games in the Midwest League baseball series to improve to 24-27 in the West Division.


Jamaal Hawkins, Wang-Wei Lin and Nate Roberts got consecutive singles in the top of the ninth to give Beloit its 2-1 lead in the second game. The Snappers had tied at 1-1 on Michael Gonzales’ sacrifice fly in the sixth.


Beloit overcame a 1-0 deficit with two runs in the second inning of the opener. Lance Ray and Kyle Knudson started the rally with consecutive doubles that tied the game. The Snappers took the lead for good by scoring while the LumberKings were executing a rundown between first and second base.


Beloit opens a three-game series tonight at Dayton.
