— The visiting Beloit Snappers clubbed the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers with a six-run inning, but lost 8-7 Monday in Midwest League baseball.

The Timber Rattlers scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth on John Dishon’s bunt single, reliever Cory Williams’ throwing error that put Dishon in scoring position and Yadiel Rivera’s RBI single.


Miguel Sano socked a grand slam in the fifth inning for the big blow as the Snappers rallied for six runs to take a 6-2 lead. The Timber Rattlers held the Snappers to one run the rest of the way.


Wisconsin scored twice in the bottom of the fifth and added three runs in the seventh to the tie the game 7-7 after Jonathan Goncalves smacked a solo homer in the top of the inning to give Beloit a 7-4 lead.


Beloit hosts Peoria in the opener of a three-game series at 7 tonight.
