— The Beloit Snappers split a doubleheader Wednesday with the host Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in Midwest League baseball.

The Snappers lost the opener, 1-0, but won the nightcap, 4-2 in eight innings. Midwest League doubleheaders are two seven-inning games.


Chris Dennis homered in the second inning off Snappers starter B.J. Hermsen (3-5) in the first game for the victory. A trio of Rattlers’ pitchers blanked the Snappers on five hits.


In the nightcap, the Snappers scored two runs in the eighth on a bases-loaded walk to Andy Leer and a bases-loaded single from Mike Gonzales.


Matt Hauser (3-0) blanked the Rattlers on one hit through 1 1/3 innings of relief to take the victory. Jose Gonzalez pitched a hitless ninth for the save.
