— Miguel Sano hit his league-leading 11th home run Sunday to pace the Beloit Snappers to a 3-1 victory over the visiting Clinton LumberKings in Midwest League baseball.

Sano’s three-run bomb in the third inning off Clinton starter Ambioris Hidalgo (1-5) gave the Snappers a 3-0 lead. Hidalgo lasted four innings and allowed four hits, three earned runs, three walks, and a home run.


Snappers starter Matt Tomshaw (2-1) blanked the LumberKings through the first six innings on three hits, one walk and six strikeouts to gain the victory. Reliever Michael Tonkin allowed one run on four hits through the final three innings for his second save.


Sano’s 35 RBIs lead the Midwest League. Sano is also leading the Midwest League with a .646 slugging percentage and 84 total bases.


The LumberKings scored their lone run in the seventh on Tonkin’s wild pitch that scored Mario Yepez, who singled earlier.


The Snappers will attempt to sweep the LumberKings at 6:30 tonight.
