The Snappers beat Clinton 6-2 in Game #2 on Thursday to sweep their best-of-three series in the first round of the Midwest League playoffs. The A’s 4th-round pick in this year’s amateur draft, 22-year-old RHP Dylan Covey, turned in a solid start for the Snappers, allowing 2 runs, just 1 earned, on 3 hits while walking none and striking out 3 over 6 innings of work to earn the win, while RHPs Sam Bragg and Tyler Vail and LHP Chris Lamb each contributed a scoreless inning in relief. Outfielder John Wooten doubled in 2 runs, including the go-ahead run, and walked twice, while designated hitter Ryan Mathews had a pair of hits, stole a base and scored a run, and second baseman Chris Bostick singled, walked, scored and drove in a run for the Snappers. Beloit will begin the best-of-three Western Division Championship Series on Saturday at Quad Cities.
