Two solo home runs by left fielder Ryan Mathews weren't enough for the Beloit Snappers to overcome the Quad Cities River Bandits on Saturday.

A three-run homer by Quad Cities first baseman A.J. Reed in the third inning carried the visitors to a 5-2 win.

Beloit could only muster four hits in the game off three Quad Cities pitchers. Lou Trivino took the loss, his 10th of the season.

The Snappers start a series with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in Grand Chute at 5 p.m. today.
