After losing the opener of the best-of-three series, the Snappers came back to beat the River Bandits by a score of 4-3 in the second game of the series on Sunday. Second baseman Chris Bostick kicked off the scoring in the 1st inning with a 2-run homer, and the Snappers added another run in the inning after outfielder Brett Vertigan singled in third baseman Renato Nunez. Starter Kyle Finnegan allowed 2 runs in the top of the 2nd, but Bostick singled home another run in the bottom of the 2nd for the Snappers. RHP Deyvi Jimenez surrendered 1 run in the 4th to make it a 1-run game, but Beloit’s bullpen took care of business the rest of the way, with 4 pitchers combining to throw 5 1/3 scoreless innings. LHP Chris Lamb went 1 1/3, while RHP Kris Hall struck out 3 in 1 inning of relief, RHP Nolan Sanburn went 2 innings to pick up the win, and RHP Austin House got the final 3 outs for the save. On another note, Snappers shortstop Daniel Robertson has missed both games of the series with the passing of his father this weekend. The rubber game of the match is scheduled to take place on Monday at Beloit with RHP Derek De Young the scheduled starter for the Snappers.

 

Monday’s Game:

Quad Cities @ Beloit – 4:30pm PT / 6:30pm CT
