The Beloit Snappers (17-20) will host the Quad Cities River Bandits (23-18) on Sunday in the rubber match of their weekend series at Pohlman Field. First pitch is scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
Starting for the Snappers will be Bryce Conley. Conley (1-2, 5.46) pitched a no decision on May 15th in three innings and registered six strikeouts in the Snappers 7-6 victory in their game two double-header.
The Snappers will use a tandem of Conley and Jared Poché in a piggyback system, with Poché most likely coming in to replace Conley after a few innings.
The River Bandits will send out right-hander Tyler Ivey (1-3, 3.98). Ivey threw five innings, surrendered three earned runs with five strikeouts in his last start, a 5-1 loss against Cedar Rapids on May 14th.
The Snappers won Saturday night 4-3 in 11 innings. Shortstop Nick Allen hit a sac fly to right field that scored pinch runner Skyler Weber. Mickey McDonald and Trace Loehr both led the way with two hits and McDonald, Jordan Devencenzi and Jesus Lopez both notched an RBI.
Snappers first baseman Hunter Hargrove is riding a 14-game hitting streak, the longest of anyone on the Snappers this season. Devencenzi is currently on a seven-game hitting streak as well.
Thanks to a Jesus Lopez double last night, the Snappers extended their extra-base team hitting streak to 24 games.
