* A 4-run 3rd was the key to the Bees' win over Beloit. Hilton Richardson gave the Bees a boost with a leadoff homer in the top of the 1st for his 3rd of the season. The Bees left the bases full in the 2nd and Beloit got it tied but had 2 runners thrown out trying to score on the same play in an odd turn of events. Joey Lewis hit an RBI double to help start a Bees rally in the 3rd and Juan Graterol hit an RBI single before a Fernando Cruz 2-run single made it 5-1. Matt Mitchell gave up a solo homer in the 4th but Adam Frost got the run back with interest with a 2-run double in the 5th. Rene Oriental hit an RBI single in the 6th and Beloit got 2 runs in the 7th off Mike Lehmann. Deivy Batista polished it off with a solo homer in the 9th and Rodolfo Encarnacion finished the game to get Mitchell his 1st win of the season. Beloit SP Miguel Munoz took the loss with 5 ER over 4 IP. Five Snappers had multiple hits led by a 4-4 day from SS James Beresford. The Bees are 11-18.
