Farmhand Of The Game:

Outfielder John Wooten

(Home Run / Game-Winning RBI)

 

With the game tied, outfielder John Wooten hit his 8th home run to give the Snappers the lead just moments before the game was called early due to lightning. Designated hitter Matt Olson and outfielder Brett Vertigan drove in a run apiece, while third baseman Renato Nunez collected a pair of hits. Starter Seth Streich had a shaky outing for the Snappers, allowing 5 runs, 3 earned, on 8 hits over 5 innings of work, but he was still able to walk away with his 5th win for Beloit.
