Matt Olson, Beloit Snappers rally for win
DAVENPORT, IOWA—Matt Olson remains hot for the Beloit Snappers.
The Oakland A’s 2013 first-round pick hit a three-run homer in the top of the sixth inning to help the Snappers rally past Quad Cities, 5-4, in a Midwest League game Saturday night.
Olson, who was the Midwest’s Western Division Player of the Week, hit his team-high 23rd home run to give the Snappers a 5-4 lead. John Wooten hit his 20th home run for Beloit in the fourth.
Dylan Covey (1-1) got win, while Tyler Vail earned his seventh save with a scoreless ninth.
Game two of the three-game regular-season ending series between the teams is this afternoon.
