4/16, Beloit 6, Cougars 0
The Cougars would be out hit 11-6, and leave ten men on base. They lost 6-0 to the Beloit Snappers. The main reason they lost was the long ball, as they would give up two of them in the game.
Chris Mederos would take the loss, but really pitched well, and if he had gotten some run support he could've gotten a win. He went six and two thirds innings, giving up three hits and one run. He walked one and struck out five. He had a no hitter going into the fourth inning. The hit he gave up was a bloop in which right fielder Rashun Dixon misplayed a ball, then had to try to make a late diving catch. Mederos would walk a hitter in the first. He also gave up a bloop single in the sixth. The seventh inning the Cougars would give up one run. With two innings, Angel Morales doubled to right center off of Mederos. The Cougars then brought in Ryan Quigley, who would give up a bloop single to left to Wang Wei Lin to score Morales. Beloit had a chance to score in the eighth inning with two outs. Brian Dozier singled to left, thenhe would steal both second and third. Derek McCallum would strike out to end the inning. Quigley had a lot of problems in the ninth. Danny Rams led off the inning with a double off the right field wall. He would be pitch run for by Reggie Williams. Michael Gonzalez then hit his third homer of the series, and his second in two days over the right field deck. Angel Morales singled back to the mound, then mound, then would steal second. Lin singled to short. Josmil Pinto hammered one over the scoreboard in left center for a three run homer. The Cougars did have runners on base in the game and some opportunities. In the fourth inning the Cougars left the bases loaded. Myrio Richard led off the inning with a single to right. Two outs later, Rashun Dixon singled back to the mound, and Mike Gilmartin walked. Juan Nunez then lined one back to the mound to end the inning. In the fifth inning, Kent Walton hit a double down the left field line. The Snappers then made a pitching change, Richard would ground out to end the inning. In the eighth inning with two outs, Richard doubles just over the head of the left fielder, then he went to third on a throwing error by the left fielder. The Snappers then made a pitching change. Chris Affinito grounded out to end the inning. The ninth inning the Cougars would leave the bases loaded. With one out, Dixon reached on an error by the third baseman.
